Thrifty Thursday – Little Black Dress

Soooo, I was hoping to have a thrifted video for you today but, my camera had other plans. :-( Let’s hope I can crank out a video next week! In the meantime, today’s Thrifty Thursday is all about my little black dress. I’ve been looking for a dress like this for what seems to be ages. When I saw the $5 dress hanging up, I figured it wouldn’t be too flattering. But something told me to just grab it. I love tent dresses but they don’t always do much for my shape. Going against my initial thought, I went ahead and purchased the dress anyway. I didn’t even try it on – very unlike me, I know. When I got home and tried the dress on, it fit AND (thankfully) it didn’t look like a potato sack!!


Dress: Thrifted, 2nd Avenue// Purse: Thrifted: Laurel Thrift// Shoes: Marshalls, Me Too// Jewelry: Thrifted



Church and work popped in my mind first when thinking about where to wear this dress. I figured I’d style my church look with a modest heel, like the ones pictured. Of course, I accessorized with gold to bring out the buttons and shoe heels. When I style this dress for work, I’m thinking of wearing a dressy pair of flats. I can also picture this dress being worn for date-night with a pair of bad pumps. Hubby likes that idea best, lol. So it looks like me and my little black tent dress have some places to go!


So tell me, are you a fan of tent dresses? How would you style this little black dress? Let me know!

Thanks for stopping by and as always, I appreciate you all! Until tomorrow, be blessed & stay safe…XO!

    This is cute. You did well following your instinct and getting it anyway. I don’t think I have had a tent dress. There is a blogger that I think did the same but paired it with a printed/geometric sweater over the top. Maybe leggings /boots?

      Thanks, Wave! I though the purse was rather unique. I was going to add it to the shop but, I think I’ll be holding onto this for a while, lol! 😉
