The Best $10

I still can't believe I got this dress for only $10. I've worn it quite a few times, and a couple of them have even made it to the blog (here and here). I think this is the first time I've worn it with browns, though, which is so surprising to me. I don't think I've ever told you the story of how I got this dress, so I'll share it now, because I don't have much else to say about this outfit :) 

I was riding the bus to work, as always, and there was a girl in this dress. She was a good ten feet from me, but I loved the length of the sleeves (I still remember she was wearing one of the J.Crew pave bracelets with it) and the oversized houndstooth pattern, so I started looking the dress up on my phone since she was too far away to ask. I couldn't find it anywhere. As soon as I got to work, I hopped on Shopstyle, figuring I'd give it one last chance, and I found that it was at H&M and still available. Luckily I work in the same building as an H&M, so I went down on my lunchbreak, found it was on sale for only $10, and grabbed it IMMEDIATELY. If you guys aren't familiar with Shopstyle, check it out. It is such a great resource for hunting down specific items!

I'm in Hawaii right now so posting might be a bit sporadic. Follow me on Instagram if you want to see my annoying photos of the amazing weather and sunshine and relaxation every 5 minutes.
