I got this dress while thrift shopping in Hilton Head.  It was just a bit big in the waist, so I had it taken in and now it fits like a glove! 

Cost for dress = $2.  Cost for tailoring = $20.  Cost of feeling fabulously yacht ready =  priceless.

This is probably one of the best thrifted dresses I've ever seen- such a fun pattern and after the price of tailoring still completely affordable...now I want to go thrifting!

I admire you for this. This is the reason why I love blogging: I get to broaden my horizons!

1. I just got into thrifting...and only because of the fabulous finds that I've seen others acquire.
2. I would never have looked at a dress like this before, but seeing it styled on you...I'm going to keep this in mind!

Thanks for the inspiration!

That dress does fit you like a glove. Great thrifted find! Not to mention you've probably now got a one of a kind item for $22.

That dress is so amazing! It's very Versace-esque. You look like you belong at a yacht club!!

What a cute & colorful dress. How French Riviera and how Americana at the same time. =))
