Thrifty Living at its Finest…

What do you do when you have a business meeting to go to with your husband and you’re not sure what to wear? I’ve created a little recipe, of sorts, for you.

1.

About an hour before you have to leave, pull out the thrifted tea-length dress that you wore to a high school social in 11th grade. (Please don’t ask why I still have it. No idea.)

2.

Cut the top off. That’s right–take scissors to your dress. An hour before you need to walk out the door.

3.

Pair it with a ruffled top and the black heels that you’ve had since, oh, you know…college. Top it off with the blazer that you bought for a job interview to blog about Goodwill shopping, thrifty living, etc. (Oooooops. I bought it for about 75% off, though. Is that enough to redeem myself?)

4.

Rock your outfit, feeling like a million bucks, but loving that it was FREE.

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra

  2. You’re brave, but I bet it looked fantastic! How did you know that the skirt part of the dress would stay up on its own? Did it have a high waist line, so it just sat loosely on your hips once it was cut?

      Oh! I should have said. The dress had an elastic waist, so I just cut above the elastic. : )

  3. P.S. Love the shoes!!
