Sunday Best for Less: Sunday School Social (Yard Sale Dress Find)
If you live in the South, you know that people here like to dress fancy. Especially for church. Or, at least here in Raleigh at my church. There is no casual church day in my little neck of the woods. I'm talking heels and hairbows and pearls and perfume.
Last Sunday in my Sunday School class we had a little social to send off some missionaries and friends who were moving away. I knew I couldn't get away with a sneak in-and-out of the back row outfit...I needed something special.
God is good. On Saturday morning, while hitting the yard sales, I found a rack of $3 dresses (cheaper than the GW boutique). While thumbing through, This sweet wrap dress caught my eye. Sold. Was it my size? Who made it? No clue. Every single dress on the rack had the tags cut out for some reason, but for $3, it was worth the risk.
I thought it was super cute and super fun. I looked at the yard sale "hostess" and she looked like she could be my size, so I paid my three dollars and was on my way.
The dress was very well made, and I loved the side tie bow and the v neckline. The print was adorable in an aqua blue and navy pattern.
The ruffles at the neckline and the covered button at the sleeves gave it my required fancy factor.
Perfect for a summer party or sunday school social. Or lunch with a former student at Bojangles, which is where I happen to be headed in an hour.
I'm sorry, did the Bojangles thing ruin it for you? Did I mention southerners love to dress fancy for church AND eat Bojangles? Well now you know.
