Details Combing through the racks at my local Value Village store is one of my favorite things on the planet.  At the end of my 30 I started to crack…and for good reason.  It was the 50% off sale at VV and I couldn’t pass up getting a few cheaper than cheap things, which included this insane little dress.  When I showed it to husband he thought I’d gone mad and I think secretly he was very interested to see how I was planning to put it all together.  It may very well have started out life as a swim cover-up, but of that I can’t be certain.  All I know is that despite being a little higher on the neckline than I prefer it is a pretty great fit and I knew that with a belt and the right accessories it might have a chance of coming off cool.  I guess you’ll have to let me know if you think this attempt at styling it was a success.
