My Little Black Dress

I’m at that in between size stage where none if the nicer clothes in my closet look, or feel, right.  So, I went dress shopping at Burlington Coat Factory today.




I enlisted the help of friends and family via Facebook and Instagram, and finally purchased the last one, the black dress with leather inset. I really liked the first dress, the animal print, also. Since we only had it in the budget to buy one, I put the animal print back.
I tried on several scarves, but they took away from the slimming effect of the dress, so I found some chunky jewelry instead.


I spent $38.50 on the dress, necklace, and earrings.

Paired the black boots that I already own (bought last year, at Lane Bryant— I think), I now have a beautiful ensemble to wear to church tomorrow.


I wanted something pretty because I will be receiving my pastoral license during our morning service tomorrow.

Not bad for $under $40, right?

(ha!  I finally figured out how to publish a post from my phone!!)
