I frequent a local thrift store a couple blocks from my house. It’s hit or miss but when I hit, I hit it hard. That store must be the drop off for women who wear my size because a lot of other thrift stores only seem to have polyester plus sized clothing (ew!). I usually bee-line first to the dresses. I was attracted to the color and pattern of a dress and when I pulled it off the rack was disheartened to find it was long and definitely ’80’s inspired. I tried it on anyhow because I figured if it fit, I could just get it shortened. And besides, it had pockets. YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT POCKETS IN A DRESS.
Needless to say, I bought it and thanks to my Mom, it’s now wearable.
This dress is super comfortable. I can pair it with flats or boots or heels, change up the belt and the jewelry to dress it up or down. And it was under $10. SCORE.
