Stilettos and Diapers: Fashion Friday - Easter under $40

Fashion Friday - Easter under $40

I'm cheap frugal. You all know that well. Special events and holidays get special outfits, but they still can't break my pricing rules. No favoritism. Just an Easter outfit that cost me under $40.

{Pretty certain Rachel Zoe herself would DIE over these shoes}

{I really should remember lipstick every now and then}

The hubs said I looked like I just won the WWE Championship.

Humm. I guess I see that.

So about 10 minutes before we were supposed to leave for church, I put my dress on and realized you could see straight through it.

I mean, I may as well have been wearing yellow saran wrap. It was that bad.
I threw on my holy jean outfit from the day before and told the hubs we had to stop at Target. Umm, it was Easter and Target was closed. Craptastic.

We kept driving and I saw a Big K. I didn't even know K-Marts were even around anymore. But they were open, so I went in. They had 1 rack of slips and they were all long with lacy stuff everywhere. Then I spotted one simple short one. Holla! As I ran (literally) to the checkout, I got bummed that I would have to add $10.99 to the price of my outfit. But, the cashier rang it up and it was $0.99! Tax brought that bad boy up to $1.05. Booyah!

I changed in the backseat while the hubs was flying and tossing me around. Then I realized the slip was hanging out the bottom of the dress.

I was ready to go to church in what the good Lord brought me into the world wearing.

But I stopped feeling sorry for myself, got out my sewing kit and some nail clippers and got that sucker hemmed. Thank goodness it took half an hour to get there!

Moral of the story? Always try on your outfit ahead of time.

Outfit Deets:

Dress: Ross (Its a brand new daaaaay!) $10.99

Shoes: Ross (I'll spare you) $16.99

Fashion Friday is brought to you by the fab, Summer!

  24. um...can I just say that you are adorable?! I love your Easter outfit! I am stopping by for the UBP! I am looking forward to reading more of your blog. I love shopping, but I am cheap as well. So much so, in fact, that my husband has to make me (yes, you read that right) by stuff because I have a cap of $20 (still haven't figured out where I came up with that number) for any item. If its even a dollar over i will put it back! lol
