Black tie affordable
The dress is White House Black Market. I purchased it 2 years ago for a more formal wedding in Chicago. I got it on Ebay for $40.
The shoes I bought last year at Target for $40. They are black patent, and I saw them as a good investment at a fair price.
The vintage pearl necklace I found when the boy and I took a trip a couple years ago to Columbus. It was $40, but I also saw this as a good investment.
The pearl earrings I bought recently for around $10 at JC Penny's.
The clutch was bought 2 years ago in Chicago at a boutique called Lori's for $20.
In total, this outfit probably cost me about $150, which is what I could have spent on a new dress. It just goes to show you that smart investments in classic pieces over time will provide you with a wardrobe that you can rely on.
