Weekend Wear: Special Occasion
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?
