Pretty In Pink – How I Styled A 2.50 Fuchsia Dress

fuchsia dress I wasn’t paying attention to the sale of the day when I entered the Goodwill a few weeks ago.   This fuchsia dress was peaking out amongst a stack of black dress’.  Since I’m really trying to incorporate more color into my wardrobe, I decided to give it a try.  Typically the dress’ are 5.00 so you can imagine my surprise when the cashier told me that my total 2.50.  I had no idea that yellow tag clothing was an additional 50% off.

As soon as I arrived home I tried the dress on and fell in love immediately but it was definitely a mini dress.  No worries, that just meant that it would go in the “date night” section of my closet.  I do wear shorter dress’ with leggings and ridding boots or as a top with skinny jeans.  My personal preference is to save the short dress’ and bare leg’s for my husband.

Fuchsia pairs well with so many colors but I decided to go with grey for my dinner date.  The ruffled sleeves give the dress a soft feminine look.  I paired it with my grey nine west heels clutch, my chunky thrifted iridescent necklace.  I topped it off with my grey JJill coat.  This is probably one of my best thrift scores so far this year.

Don’t forget to ask a sales associate what the sale of the day is when thrifting, you never know when you will stumble upon the perfect dress at 1/2 price.

Happy Thrifting!
