Ten Dollar Dress

14 May

Smack dab in the middle of Solvang, California sits a funny little place……..Shelbi Ranch. It’s not a ranch though. It’s a diner. No, a boutique. No, it’s uh, um…….well, let me explain. Downstairs, it’s a teeny little diner where everything on the menu is $1……everything! (and we hear that it’s pretty tasty.) Upstairs, it’s a  fabric, life-size plastic buffalo, log bed, large art, tchotchkes and $10 dresses store. Random right? But I say, “Right on!” because it’s where I picked up this too cute maxi dress. Yes, for $10.

Fashion Tip  ::  Remember that patterns are excellent for hiding figure flaws. Choose a pattern that is neither too small nor too large for your frame.

Dress   ::  Jody @ Shelbi Ranch

Shoes  ::  Cindy at DSW

Jewelry  :: BCBGMAXAZRIA, Plenty Boutique,  “Fashionista” bracelet, a gift from my Mom today

Please allow me to interrupt this Mother’s Day fashion post to introduce you to my family.

    My favorite blog, thus far! What a perfect day it was!
    Generation #3, Mom

    P.S. Miss Fashionista, I don’t believe you have any figure flaws to hide – even with patterns!

      Thanks Mom! When family gets together it’s always a perfect day.

      No figure flaws? Thanks but “yea right!” We ALL have them perhaps I’m just better at hiding them :)

      Have a great day!

      I am ALL about the bargains Kari. Fashion does not have to cost a lot.

      I too think my family is beautiful, but they’re mine so….:) Thanks for the compliment and good luck with your runs this week. You’re a rockstar!
