Dress it up!

Fashion, shopping, styling….just another obsession of mine!

I’ve been a shopping queen for as long as I can remember now! I calmed down for a bit there while I was having the kids and fluctuating between sizes. But I’m back and loving replenishing my wardrobe….especially for winter fashion!!!

My latest purchase is a beautiful cream crochet dress that I purchased from Kmart for a low $19!!!! Oh I forgot to mention, I like to bargain shop and am happy to buy from wherever as long as it looks good and isn’t going to shrink or fall apart after one wash! I will occasionally splurge on something expensive, but then again I find ways like eBay or outlets to find the identical piece at half the price! I do this why?? So I can purchase more! The more money I save on bargains, the more stuff I can buy while I’m shopping!

One thing I don’t usually do, is purchase something unless I am going to wear it a lot or unless it is for a specific occasion. My new dress was a purchase for neither of those reasons, it was bought just because! I really liked the style and colour and already had many accessories that I can style it with. A dress like this is nice to have in the wardrobe at this time of year in case we go to a party, dinner or even the races.

I don’t have a lot of items in my wardrobe that resembles a vintage look, but when I spotted this dress for the first time, I loved it. This is how I would style it:

Dress it up with brown heals, chocolate brown long necklace and clutch bag with a pattern!

Not as dressy but still elegant with wedges, necklace and clutch bag.

Bit more smart casual now with boots, large round earrings and clutch bag!

Trying my dress on for the first time!

I can’t wait to go somewhere and wear my dress for the first time. No plans anytime soon, so the way things are going I think I may just have to get dressed up and wear it around the house for the day lol!
