I love party dresses. Their sparkle, their dramatic designs, their larger-than-life attitude. I've always dreamed about going to a party in one. Since that isn't an option, the next best thing for me is simply to wear one and let the fantasy float in my head.
I also love bargains. I don't spend much on clothes so I was thrilled last week when I walked into my local thrift-store and saw a sign -- "Last Day 50% Off Sale." That was an omen!
A few minutes later, I spotted a glittery party dress in my favorite color (pinkish-purple). It even has rhinestones!
The dress is a little short (because, truthfully, it's too small for me) but I handle that with dark tights. The outfit is also a showcase for my new ballet-flats which are kinda cute. ($15; Payless.)
Here are some pictures. I want to thank Marilou (whose blog is Twenty York Street) for giving me this pretty bracelet for Christmas. Wasn't that sweet of her?!
