Around here, everyone has gone back to school. That makes it seem like summer is over, but it most definitely is not! It is still hot, and will be for some time, so I am taking every chance to wear white before my fashion conscience tells me that it is after Labor Day.
Today’s dress is another one that was ridiculously inexpensive. I don’t remember where I bought it, but I do remember that it cost less than $10.00–which means that even if I never wear it again, it was well worth the money.
I haven’t talked about price in awhile, but I hope you remember that I don’t like to pay more than $20 for any item of clothing. I am not saying that I don’t, but I am saying that I don’t like to, and most of my clothes fall into that category.
I am telling you this because some fashion bloggers give the impression that you must spend a lot of money to look fashionable. I don’t believe that…yes, you might pay a lot more for a dress than I do, but that does not necessarily mean it looks better.
I will say that if you are working every day, you probably do want to have some quality pieces that hold up well; however, paying a lot for something does not guarantee that. I have worn some very inexpensive items for years, and have had to throw out some things that I paid a lot for after a few wearings.
A few years ago I changed my philosophy to buy more inexpensive items, rather than fewer expensive items. It has worked well for me, because I get tired of most clothing after a few wears, and then I don’t feel guilty for recycling–and my daughters (and Goodwill) benefit. 🙂
Here is another version of the dress:
Aren’t the shoes the cutest? They are Crocs and so comfortable. They were more than $20—I am not always cheap 😉
And thanks so much to all my readers who commented on my striped top outfit! Your comments were right on the money….the white shoes and the mint green pants are NO GO’s…I 100% agree. Most of you liked the red pants, and suggested I wear them with red shoes, so I will wear these pants and change out the shoes for red ones. The blue pants were also a reader favorite, so I will wear those the next time I wear the top.Thanks!
I’ll be back soon with some more white. August is going fast!
