Dresses....for mucho less!

I know that I recently posted about some of my Goodwill finds.  But hey, I just HAD to show you more...

Here's a dress I picked up at Goodwill last week, it's from Phoebe Couture.  Waaaaay cheaper than Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue, eh?  At first sight I thought this was a vintage piece, then upon inspecting the tag realized it was new!  Also, the size had been cut out, which made me feel even better - is it a 6, 8, 10, 12?  I'll go with the 6.  *winks*

Now, to lose 5 lbs. (or more!) so things aren't so shapely in the rear.  I can do that in a month, right?  A friend's rehearsal dinner is coming in a few weeks.

No cleavage from this scoop neck, marvelous! 
Dress doesn't drape well on the hanger, much better on!

Their tags are so pretty.
Great beading - well secured.

Matching detail around the hem and sleeves.

My mom and I went garage saling the other weekend and found this dress for my daughter!

Yes, it's a Strasburg.  Any guesses as to the price?  *drum roll*  $7.50!  Yes, seven dollars and fifty cents.  It needs a bit of hemming but other than that it should fit wonderfully for the wedding next month.  I've always loved the Strasburg dresses, and we all know how pricey that can be.  I can afford $7.50 with a huge smile on my face.  Thanks, Lord for a super find!

And there you have it!  From my research, I would estimate the new purchase value of the dresses combined to be in the $300 range.  Wow. 

I spent - $9.99 + tax and $7.50 - BOTH dresses for under $20!  Now, I'd say that's a bargain AND a gift from Above!
Pin It!
