One of the keys to thrifty shopping is looking for clothes often. Sale items and consignment goods have a high turnover rate which means that the merchandise on the shelves is always changing. I got this awesome orange shift dress from my grandmother. She was out shopping the sale racks with one of her friends and she spied this lovely dayglow number.
I have a propensity for the color orange and my attitude towards it is, YES YES YES! She was at Penny’s and scored it for me.
Of course, I was elated when she brought it home to me. The only thing was that the dress was a touch too big for me and shift dresses aren’t the best shape on me.
“But the dress looks great!” You say. Well my lovely reader; If there is a garment too big or rather unshapely on me, I always turn to my handy-dandy WAIST BELT.
Waist belts are the secret weapon of all savvy, thrifty fashionistas. If you have not already, I strongly suggest that you invest in one… or two… or three… or however many you think would be prudent to add into your wardrobe. (Which could be a million since they are so darn cute.)
To make this dress really shine with an ace 60’s vibe I paired it with some perfectly round sunnies and some vintage kicks.
Here’s a run-down of what was paid for the outfit: Dress: $4.00 (JC Penny’s)
Vintage belt: FREE (From my mother)
Tights:$14.00 (Fred Meyer)
Sunnies: $1.00 (Goodwill)
Shoes: FREE (from Psychic Sister Thrift Shop)
TOTAL COST: $19.00
