I've noticed my closet is quickly filling up with cute G-Dub thrifted dresses, so I decided to take this week's Best for Less to a new direction: accessories.
Accessories are a great way to update your wardrobe on the cheap. I usually head right for the clothes and don't even browse the shoes and belts when I'm in the G-Dub boutique, but I crossed my fingers last week and headed to the $1.39 belt rack. This cute stitched leather number immediately caught my eye. The blue and green threading was so fun and different and I could think of 10 different outfits to wear it with. Oh yeah, mine.
Belt in hand, I needed shoes. The right shoes. I guess I've been on a country kick lately, but this belt made me think cowgirl boots. I wanted cowgirl boots. So, I didn't find cowgirl boots, but I did find these. They had an interesting western scroll type design on the front, but a high thin heel in the back. Faded Glory from Walmart, Goodwill price, $4. In my size. Oh yeah, mine.
I brought these with me to the beach, along with a white eyelet dress I've had for years. I couldn't wait to branch out and belt something! For $5.39 + tax, I updated a favorite dress and made it new again. It was perfect for our date to the local cafe for 19 cent steamed shrimp. We ended the windy night with a hand-in-hand walk out onto the soundside dock. A storm seemed to be rolling in, and dark, ominous clouds hung angrily over the sound. Lightning struck in the distance and thunder rolled. I hope we get a storm tonight...I love a good beach storm.
