My life is charmed.



Oh, the thrift gods smile upon my once again! For some odd reason, my spidey senses were just tingling today so I decided to head to the consignment shop down my street that generally specializes in old lady blazers and Ann Taylor Loft pantsuits. But,  knowing that I've struck gold (er, silver) there before I figured it was worth a shot. Damn son, within the first five minutes of scouring the racks I came across this indescribably beautiful Chloé dress...for a mere $80. You best believe I RAN to the change room with the dresses clenched as tightly as possible, lest some middle aged woman try to snatch it away!

I got lipstick on it in the change room and thought all was lost, luckily the friendly counter girls used their magic stain remover and now it is mine, all mine!! *Cue evil laughter*

I've heard of Chloe but would have had no
idea that price was a steal!! (but then this
is the person who didn't even know the HERMES
belt on a guy I stopped was mega expensive till
someone told me!!) ... yes the right person to
be doing fashion/street style features haha!!

one thing I do know though, is that dress looks
seriously rad ... def $80 well spent!!!

street style: what are you wearing? (who are you listening to)

That dress is stunning and the neckline is perfect! I just realized you look a lot like Bernedette from "The Big Bang Theory". Don't know what you'll think of that.
