so as previously stated this past weekend i went to the j & h awards banquet in downtown grand rapids. i needed to wear something that was cute, fun but practical because i was partly responsible for planning the party and making sure things ran smoothly. so i needed something i could move around in and not have to worry about everything staying in one place.
enter this dress from anthropologie. it is going to blow your mind when i tell you what i scored it for…..
it was originally $168…. i found it on a clearance rack for $19.95. yea how can you beat that? you can’t. the perfect excuse to splurge on a pink sparkly party dress when it’s not even a splurge at all. it’s $19.95.
it was a tiny big up top. i did buy it when i was …. 1olbs heavier. yea buddy. so i didn’t mind that it was a tad bit lose. oh and did i mention that it has pockets? i love a good dress with pockets.
i paired it with my kate spade black glittery loafers and a j.crew jackie cardigan and i was good to go!
the night was super fun and finally warm out. no snow, no sleet. just sunshine and fun with co workers.
please pardon the gusts of wind. it was in fact real wind and not joe standing off to the side with fans. maybe 🙂
