Three Bucks, Three Ways...

The other night, Jonathan and I were at Walmart to get whatever groceries we cheapened out of buying at Harris Teeter (you know, like chickened out but because we're cheap? anyway...). I did a little sweep of the clothing section just for kicks, and lo and behold I found some really cute, really cheap stuff. I can usually scan their clothes with my peripheral vision without seeing anything great, but I was pleasantly surprised. I discovered a really cute, simple red dress and couldn't find the reduced price. When I scanned it... $3! What? I'll take that in black too, please. (Which I did!) So, $6, two really versatile, comfortable dresses. I'd say thetrip to buy milk and bread that was well worth the time! 

Anyway, as soon as I got home I started playing around with the red dress, mixing it up with things in my closet. Before long, I had three outfits that I really liked. (Sorry about the first two selfies... I was going to get all fixed up and take real pictures but then I laughed and returned to my nap. Kidding, sort of.)

Cardigan- TJ Maxx
Belt- Target
Shoes- Target

I would like to think I'd wear this somewhere charming like breakfast on a Saturday morning or walking downtown at the farmers' market, but, as usual, I'd probably be wearing it at school. (Also, my legs are NOT that skinny... it's the mirror, bless its heart. It does me what little favors it can.)

Chambray- Target
Belt- idk (stolen from a dress)
Boots- Nine West from Macy's

Again, probably something I'd wear at school. I love chambray and red, and I figure I won't be able to wear my boots much longer this season. 

I think this is my favorite one... I pulled out the top (you know, the one I love enough to buy in three colors?) and tried it on. I actually really loved it because it reminds me of Angela Lansbury in Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Google it, you uncultured swine! JK, it's one of the more obscure Disney movies of the '60s... so, I can forgive your ignorance.) I almost didn't wear this on Sunday thinking that it was a little much and people might stare at my bright red torso and polka-dot arms but I bit the bullet and I really like the whole retro-mod look of it. 

I really do love this dress and I still can't believe I got it for $3 at Walmart of all places! Woohoo! I love that I can wear it in all seasons and that it's a nice, comfortable cotton and it doesn't wrinkle and, well, it was $3! Hello! It would be worth the price even if weren't so versatile but it is! Win!

Find any good steals lately? Tell me about it... you know I'll give you a good, proper giddy reaction. =)
