A Classy Thrifty Thursday

cocktail dress –  [kok-teyl dres] – NOUN – A smart dress suitable for formal occasions.

Admiring my vast collection of vintage cocktail attire is one of my favourite guilty pleasures in life. I have a delightful dress for nearly any event that might crop up…but until the glamorous invites start pouring in I’m satisfied to simply play dress-up, enjoy the feel of the funky fabrics & marvel at the workmanship of these fabulous frocks from the past.

Here’s five of my faves:

Vintage Dresses (inherited or thrifted & refashioned) €4  –  Tights (1982) €5 – Clutches (all inherited) €0  –  Shoes & Boots (thrifted or ebayed years ago) €12

Total cost for ALL outfits: €21

Snag some thrifty inspiration (+ join up & share your love of second hand) over on my Gone Thrifting facebook page!

As always feel free to take part in the thrifty fun & vote for the upcoming themes…

  1. I seriously always love your posts – they manage to amaze, look stylish, and make me laugh all at the same time. That is talent my friend! 🙂 I love how you have all your pics on the red carpet and they are all beautiful outfits. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to, it would be the nude dress. They are all lovely tho!

  2. These dresses are FABULOUS!! I think I love the black one shoulder number best, although the nude dress with the updo is a close second! Love the styling of each of these looks – great post!!! 🙂

  3. Well aren’t you just so stylish?! You have a knack for gorgeous dress-wearing and clutch-matching, my friend 🙂

Don't be shy...lemme know what you think...
