The swap this past weekend was awesome! If you missed out, check out Other People’s Property Facebook to find out when the next one is, she has them about every 3 months, so never fear! One of my many favorite finds from the swap is this red and cream vintage dress with a crossed over back and iridescent buttons. I am absolutely in love with it! It was a little too big for me so I used a thick belt to create some shape so it didn’t look so frumpy. I got the belt at a goodwill in Sebastian (my hometown) while I was in high school for around $2.
I didn’t accessorize much with this dress because it’s pretty bold in itself. I just went with some dark lips, close to the dress’s color and my dark brown gladiator sandals from Target. I got these bad boys on sale for $7. I love a good maxi dress, but never know what shoes to wear. Because the dress is mid-calf length, I got a chance to show my shoes of a bit. For a total of around $9.50 for this outfit, I would say swaps are a definite money saver when you’re tight on cash for clothes. I find usually 20+ items I LOVE and it’s only $10. If you aren’t near the Orlando area, I suggest you to start one in your community, because you never know what you’ll find!
