Cute Outfit of the Day: Funny Stories


Forever 21 dress: Goodwill $4.99
slip: Goodwill $1.99
belt: Goodwill $1.99
Forever 21 earrings: Birthday gift $0
Rush Hour pumps: thrifted gift $0
Total Cost: $8.97

I've had this dress for several years but this is the first time I've worn it. I think it was because it is very see-through so I thought I'd just wear it as a bathing suit cover-up. That would be nice if I ever went swimming but I can't even remember the last time I went to the pool! So I decided to put a slip under it and finally wear it and I'm so glad I did! 

Funny story- I had a dream that my friend Alicia was wearing this dress outside with nothing under it and everyone was shocked! It was funny, trust me! 

Another funny story- Remember that rug I got at Ikea that I showed yesterday? Well, I woke up this morning and the cat had thrown up on it! Don't worry though, it cleaned up and it's as good as new again!

Today I'm linking up with:

  1. I've totally bought something that was missing like a slip or something at Goodwill because I would wear it as something else. As a result, I forget about it and end up donating it back!

  3. Very cute dress! I hate that, everytime I get a new rug one of the animals does something to it almost immediately : (

  4. Your dress looks beautiful! The slip was a good call.

    I recently thrifted a Barneys of NY skirt for $4.99. I was psyched. That's what I am wearing for today's WIWW. You did great yourself at the thrift store.

  6. Such a cute dress! I have one in my closet that I think I've only worn 2 or 3 times because I don't know how to wear it. Maybe some tights and boots, seeing your dress made me want to hit my closet. Fab earrings by the way.
