I went on a little Goodwill shopping spree yesterday.
And I was pleased to find everything 40% off!
I only spent about $15.
This trench was only $6.50.
Mossimo (from Target) and in nearly new condition!
And this dress... a whopping $4.
It has an Asian-language tag on it.
And this tunic, only $3.50
It looked like a traditional Indian kurta. It was definitely handmade.
It had slits up either side that went up pretty high, but it was pretty long,
Almost to my knees.
So, I decided to turn it into a dress.
Using hem tape, I sealed the slits on the side.
Then, I sewed some lace ruffles over the seams.
Last, I added another ruffle down the front and some pearl buttons.
Paired with black accessories (tights, shoes, belt) it looks pretty darn cute.
And did I mention it has pockets too?
I lurve dresses with pockets!
I'm sure I will end up wearing my new dress sometime this week, so I will post full shots then.
I just really wanted to share my bargain finds with you.
I'm always so proud of myself when I score a great deal.
