How to Style A $16 Dress!









Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

So, today’s post is all about making the best of what you have. I’ve adapted this way of┬áthinking recently, and it hasn’t been easy. However, it has been fun! Bottom-line is I’m not in a place, financially, too splurge as I once did. I’m committed to focusing more on saving money, recovering from debt, and starting my own business.

Thus, a lot of my style posts will be centered around pieces I already have in my closet, or something I’ve acquired during an out right ridiculous sale! ­čÖé

Today, I’m sharing with you all how I styled my $16 dress. I purchased this piece a while back, and it’s held up pretty good, as I’ve washed it quite a bit. I decided to pair this low-cost purchase, with a few mid-range pieces, to achieve a rather high-end look.

Here are the deets!

The Breakdown:

Periwinkle Dress: Francesca’s- $16

Bracelet: Target- Oops, I don’t remember the┬áprice

Statement Necklace: Francesca’s- $12

Pointy-toe Court Shoes: Kate Spade- $198

Clutch- Nine West- $68

It’s also important to note that these items were all purchase at random times, day’s, months, and even years apart. However, because all of the items are ┬átimeless, and multi-functional, they mix + match well together.

Always remember, it’s not about what you wear, it’s how you wear it!

Wishing you all a blessed and prosperous day!

    Love this dress on you! I agree, it’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Like you, I’ve been shopping my closet lately and wearing old things in new ways. Check out my blog if you like!
