30 x 30 | Day Six

When I first saw this black lace dress while thrifting one day, I tried to avoid it.  There were plenty of reasons to not buy it: I want to wear less black, I already owned nine black dresses, it was the beginning of fall and sleeveless dresses were about to be a non possibility, etc.  But eventually, I tried the dress on and how many times are you going to find a LBD for $4. Never, or at least that's what I told myself as I was checking out.

The other night I was playing dress up with the black and pink houndstooth dress because I genuinely had no ideas on how to style it other than the basics (over leggings and/or tights, underneath a black jacket or blazer) when I got the bright idea to pull the black dress on over top.  Hello, whole new world of styling opportunities.

  2. That lace dress is awesome! I agree, it would have been hard to pass up. I like the pink and black houndstooth with it too. It's unexpected and fun!
