The Finale

Don't think I've forgotten about the 5 for $5. I think this one's my fave. It was $1.99 and on sale; 50% off. Yes, folks; I bought this for $1!

 I figured I have the skirt-skirt-dress I made, so why not own a wrap dress?

 What the heck was I doing here? 
"Oh..styling this gave me a headache.."

This was supposed to be my finale for granny chic week, but life got in the away. I know what you're thinking: "Heh-lloo, where are your priorities?!" I know! I'm going to have to cut back on fighting Fashion Crime (aka the F/T job), chasing down fashion offenders (gym time) and spending time with my boyfriend; not necessarily in that order. 
This concludes the 5 for $5. I'm sure there will be more refashioned dresses under $5 in my future, but there's no pressure to find one.

    Love it! It looks like the knot skirts that were so popular this spring....I can't remember which blogger diy-ed it. Grrr. I really need to organize my bookmarks. 

  6. That dress is adorable! Especially with that belt. It's really flattering and looks great with the simple black shoes. And only  $1?! Such a steal! Nice job. 

    Jess :)

  7. I love what you did with the dress and I really, really like the hemline!  So fun!
