The Four Year Old Dress + $9 Shoes- Easter Brunch Look
I wore this dress FOUR years ago for my bridal shower. I remember showing up to my mom’s place in this beautiful pop of coral feeling so special. It was an amazing day. I didn’t spend any more than like $20 on it from Asos because I thought that I’d only wear it once. Nonetheless it holds such a special place. It sat in my closet for literally years because I just never really had a reason to wear it again... I’m generally pretty boring when it comes to the colors that I wear. A little bit before Easter I was done with putting together my daughter's outfit and was on to mine. I always raid my closet before buying things like dresses because they don’t get a ton of use from me. That’s when I saw it. The four year old bright coral dress. I fell in love again. It had a few loose threads (I mean, four year old Asos dress...) and what looked like a drink stain (that party life back then) but it still brightened up my mood. I ran it to the cleaners and picked it up a few days later. It looked brand new! The dress was perfect for the special Easter Day with my family. I’m so glad that I never parted with it and love how overly sentimental I am with like, everything.

By now you know that I’m a bargain shopper with a lot of items. Ross and TJ Maxx stores are my guilty pleasures. Right before Easter I had an hour of my ‘mom time’ and decided to browse around. I ran to Ross not expecting to find much or...hoping to not find much. I went to the shoe department first because, obviously. I couldn’t believe what I laid eyes on. The perfect nude/pink, suede, lace up, closed toe, low heel pump (pretty much everything that I live for) for $8.99! I had to double check my reality because this wasn’t happening. I literally stood there dumbfounded for like 10 minutes looking for the flaws. There were none! I held them like a baby as I went to the register. I tried them on with the bright coral dress and viola! They were the best find for the occasion.

You totally lucked out with your dress and especially your shoes to make an outfit that is very now and on trend. Years ago while visiting Miami I made a couple trips to Ross, so I know that there is plenty of treasure to be found there:)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! You’re always so supportive. Ross is definitely a secret weapon :)Delete
