Date Night Outfit - Vintage Romance

I actually got a date night after a week of my oldest being sick with a virus.  Can I get a "woo-hoo" for adult night?  I decided that, since this doesn't happen very often, I would dress up and look a little fancy.

I found this dress a few years ago at Buffalo Exchange.  It is a great resale store that has chains all over the U.S.  They have some super unique, vintage finds as well as items you can find in retail stores today.  I love thrifting and resale shopping.  It is like going on a treasure hunt and when you find "that" piece, you feel like you have struck gold! 

Some good thrift chains to check out are Buffalo Exhange, Platos Closet and even Goodwill.  I know some people my turn their nose at thrifing, but I will tell you first hand, that I have found some fabulous pieces at these shops including brands such as  J.Crew, BCBG, Banana Republic, Lucky Brand, Zara and so much more.

So, if you are looking for an amazing steal and truly enjoy snagging that fab find, I encourage you to check out your local thrift or consignment stores.  You will be amazed at what you will discover.

Remember my philosophy..."You don't have to spend a lot of money to look like you did."

FYI- I kept everything pretty simple in this outfit since the dress has so much going on. A few small, simple accessories are all you need when your main focus is your dress, top or pants.

What has been you're fab find while thrifting?  I would love to know.  Please share your goods!

Cheers to recycling fashion!
