$1 Dress and Happiness Boutique

Happiness Necklace 2 Happiness Necklace 1 Happiness Necklace 3 Happiness Necklace 4 Happiness Necklace 5

You read that title correctly.  This dress was just $1.  Recently, my local Plato's Closet had a sale to get rid of all their clearance items.  There wasn't much left...mostly shrunken Forever 21 clothes made out of what I can only imagine are tissues and garbage bags.  However, I found this little gem on the rack.  It was relegated to the depths of the clearance rack because the zipper was completely detached from the dress.  For $1, I figured I could see if Susie could fix it.  Susie is my tailor.  When you are short legged and large butt-ed, sometimes the only way you can ever wear human clothing is to know your tailor by name.  So, for the price of $5 (I think she gives me a frequent flyer discount), Susie repaired the dress.  So, maybe this dress was $6.
Despite the great deal on this dress, the real superstar of this outfit is the necklace.  That piece of statement necklace glorious-ness is from Happiness Boutique.  It's got the perfect of amount of sparkle (i.e a lot!) and it's lightweight enough that it can be an everyday piece.
