Thrifty Thursday ~ Dresses for less than $16!

I'm Going to Sparkle at BlogHer '11!

I know, you are probably tired of hearing about Blogher but I promise this post can relate to any ladies that fancy a pretty dress for less than $16. However, if you are attending Blogher and you have not grown tired of the fashion topic yet, you get the pleasure of previewing my dresses that I will be wearing at Blogher.

Goodwill ~ $1

Here is my Wendsday evening cocktail dress. I was extremely excited to find this comfy dress which flares out (perfect for my mommy belly) for only $1 at Goodwill. It even had the new tag from Macys which had a price tag of $69.00! Initially I was faced with the dilemma of how I would fit in 2 cocktail style dresses in my Blogher schedule (see second one below). Well I knew exactly where I would wear this when I found out I am co-hosting the Angie's Kettle Corn Meet and Greet pre-Blogher event (you should come btw:

Ross ~ $12.99

This is my Thursday evening dress, I love the fit. The pleats in the middle again hide my mommy belly and it is extremely comfortable (and breathable) since it looks like my Thursday evening is packed!

Kohls ~ $6.80

This is my Friday Cheap Sally Dance Party dress. When I set out to get a dress for Friday I knew that i would obviously be dancing and I didn't want to go with a strapless dress in fear of flashing the world. This dress is comfortable, flashy and practicial for dancing. Also, anything with rosette flowers are a win for me.

Kohls ~ $9.80

Here is my Saturday evening dress. I bought this two years ago and I can't give it up, it fits nicely and I love the pattern. It's comfy yet dressy which is perfect for my Saturday evening!

Let's talk comfy day time dresses:

Ross ~ $15.99

This dress I bought specifically to wear at Blogher during the day. It's cute, comfy and I love the paisley art work. Perfect for San Diego.

Kohls ~ $12.98

I got this dress last year before a cruise to Mexico. It wouldn't be right if I didn't wear at least one Beach attire dress while in beautiful San Diego. I typically don't like "Maxi" dresses because I feel like when the wind blows under them it makes my body shape look funky but this one is doable.

$5 ~ Goodwill

I really like this dress and it fits nice however, I need to jazz it up. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them! I am thinking maybe a half cardigan in a white or creamy color.


  1. wow! I thought you looked great in all the dresses!

  2. I love all the dresses! Thanks for sharing, it makes me feel more confident in picking out my par-tay outfits. :-)
