Nifty Thrifty: Blue Lace

I’ve always loved lace. When we got married, I knew I wanted an all lace dress, well before I knew that would be an upcoming trend. There’s something so gentle and feminine about it. It’s a style I am constantly looking for, although, I’ll admit I’m rather picky about it. I don’t do see-through lace, lace shorts or anything too cheap looking. To accomplish all that on a budget isn’t always easy.

Casual Comfort

Recently I shared my wish for Stitch Fix or something of the like, but also my resolution to blog about my thrift store finds instead. We all have something to share about deals we snag or fashions we put together. Even though I don’t frequent the style blogs or dream about putting together the perfect outfit, I like being confident and comfortable with how I look.

Lace Top

This tank is the perfect combination of cute and comfortable. I can wear it on a rainy Saturday for a relaxed look. Or I can dress it up for work by pairing it with a nice pair of slacks.

This LOFT piece was a GCF (Goodwill Community Foundation) find for only $3.49.

While I am not a big fan of lace shorts, lace skirts or dresses are an entirely different story. I was thrilled when I found this skirt as it has just the right amount of twirl.


Perhaps overlooked because it had a bit of a stain when I found it, a little soap and scrubbing did the trick. Generally, I don’t purchase stained items, but at times will make exceptions if the stain is barely noticeable or if the item is unique enough that I think it’s worth the risk.


Also found at GCF (albeit a different location), this skirt was $3.39 and worth every penny.

    Whenever I see a little girl in a dress, I ask her to “twirl”! It was fun to seem you doing the same!Very cute skirt and the woman in it!
