What I wore this past Friday just for fun... No reason at all. I felt like playing dress up and this is what I came up with. I purchased this dress at our local Salvation Army for $5 I think, maybe cheaper. I can't remember. Being a curvier gal it's a little harder to find clothing that fits well (without any tailoring) at a thrift store. So when I spotted this on the rack I immediately ran to the fitting room, and was so, so super excited that it fit! I actually was so excited I screamed across the whole store to get my husband's attention so he could come be excited with me. Yes my husband gets excited when I find things I love at thrift stores, well what he actually gets excited about is me spending $5 on a dress, instead of $50. Lezbehonest. Before I left the store I already had many plans for this dress. I could totally pair it with a pair of  tan wedges, and a bright colored clutch for a casual date night, or flat brown leather sandals, and straw bag for lunch on the beach. Here I paired it with a thin leopard print belt, black cage heels, vintage clutch, and minimal gold jewelry. I love how the lace, leopard and cutouts in the heels are all so different but compliment and bring something unique to the look. 

Do you ever dress up just for fun? What would you want to wear?
