Rule #1 for wearing a wrap dress: pin your skirt together! Otherwise, the slightest breeze will give people sitting in traffic an eye full. A tiny safety pin was my best friend this morning as I strolled from the MARTA station to work.
The best thing about this dress? It was FREE! It used to belong to a friend of mine, and she was willing to part ways with it at the clothing swap. Lucky me!
Oh, and those heels are the newest edition to my wardrobe. I found them on a quick lunchtime DSW trip yesterday. While I relish my thrifty finds in the clothing department, I’ve learned that it’s wise to fork over a little money when investing in footwear (and I’m a little leery of second hand shoes, especially from complete strangers). I’ve gone the Payless route before, and the quality wasn’t there. Surprise, surprise! These beauts only set me back $60, so they weren’t too steep. And they are considerably better made than most of the shoes in my current collection.
Dress Fest 2011 continues tomorrow, y’all! Until then…
