Thrift Store Outfits // Dime Skirt

The weekend was spent celebrating my 42nd birthday. For brunch at my favorite french bistro, I chose a dressed up version of eating pants - soft and stretchy on top and bottom. I usually buy t-shirts from the thrift store but I couldn't resist the $3 tee that perfectly sums up my relationship with mornings and dependence on coffee. Words do not form until I have a few sips in me. The skirt was a dime which means it was basically free.

5 Reasons To Trash Your Thrift Store Budget

I balked at the $8.99 price tag at first glance. I didn't know it was a designer find but I liked the comfortable and cute style it had going on. I tried it on and knew the T by Alexander Wang dress was coming home with me. I rarely go over $5 for a thrift store dress and this zip front dress gave me reason to break the budget.
