little black sheath

I hardly ever go shopping.  And when I do I feel like whatever I buy has to be very versatile and a great price.  

A couple weeks ago I went shopping with a couple friends.  Being that we live in a small city, we drove an hour and a half to another city to shop for the evening.  We spent a significant amount of time in Forever 21. I came in thinking I was not going to buy anything.  I told myself that I was there to help my friend shop.  That was until I saw this little black sheath dress. 

Forever 21  -  $24.70 
(belt not included)

This model must be tall, because on my 5'3" frame, it hits me at the knee.  And because Forever 21 caters to the 21 and younger crowd, and not 30-something mother who has carried and birthed three children, I had to go up 2 full sizes to get it to zip up.

This is what I call versatile!  I wore a zebra striped skinny belt and red patent leather heels and I can't wait to try more things with it.  And it's great just the way it is too!  Perfect for church, parties, whatever.  

And what a great price!  $24.70!  I found a similar dress at Shabby Apple for $98.  Now, I am not trying to compare quality, but for someone who is very budget conscience, this will do very nicely!
