This week I seemed to score on clothing. Fall clothing for myself and my children. But I wanted to share with you what I really saved some cash on....this for my daughter, Sister Sledge (13)
As a photographer I photograph alot of formal functions. I am always astonished when I hear high school girls (in particular) mention the cost of their prom dresses. Six hundred, even just short of a thousand for another. I almost choked. I would never. So, when I found some formal dresses at $10.00 each...in classic timeless styles I went for it. I actually own four but these were the 3 I purchased on this day.
One in pink
One in Charcoal, with a grey sash
And finally a black dress
All three for $10 each.
Yes, Sister Sledge IS to young for prom just yet. She has a couple years, but that is why I chose classic designs. She and her friends approved them. Each wanting their turn at a certain dress come that day.
What if she wants something differed before then? You ask.
Well, I KNOW that I can make at least what I put into the dress on consignment. It's a win win.
Always keep your options open.
Even Big Daddy approved this purchase.
My Tablescape for today is in the theme of autumn:
