Weekend Wear: Special Occasion

I bought this dress to wear to a wedding we had over the summer in New York City. I didn't have a chance to take pictures until just this past weekend when we went to the symphony to hear Carmina Burana. An awesome show if you ever get the chance to go.

When I was a looking for a dress for the wedding, I didn't want to spend a lot so I went to Avalon Exchange, a consignment store in Squirrel Hill. I found this no-name dress there for $15! Because the dress was so cheap I splurged a little on the earrings. I usually don't spend a lot on jewelry, but I knew these would be worn over and over again. The shoes were a different story. I typically like to spend a lot on shoes so I know my feet will be comfortable day in and day out. However, for weddings I like to wear cheap shoes. I am a pretty aggressive dancer at weddings and my shoes will be lucky if they last the night.

I was pretty happy with the outfit I ended up with for just about $60. It has already proven its staying power in my closet. Have you found any great special occasion dresses for a deal lately? Any special occasions coming up?
