This is a late outfit post but I wore it to a friend’s 21st birthday party back in May. I forgot I took outfit shots of it. The reason why I still wanted to share this is because this dress was thrifted/opshopped and it was $4.50.
See below for more photos.
One of the things I love about thrifting/opshopping is that it makes me want to try different styles and be able to experiment with fashion more because it’s affordable. If I don’t end up wearing a thrifted item, I wouldn’t feel as guilty because I didn’t pay as much for it. It’s also good for one-off outfits but I know I’ll get a few wears out of this dress.

The shoes I wore are my trusted pair of wedges. I’ve had the wedges for a few years now and it is so comfortable it has become my go-to pair. I wore it for my University graduation where I’ve lasted all day doing the march and going up on stage, wore this to concerts to give me added height and parties. It’s still in good condition after all this time.
I really liked this whole outfit and even though it was cold, I just wore a coat over it and you wouldn’t be able to tell me back was completely open. I like having the surprise back detail.
I also really liked the makeup I did that night. I didn’t do anything crazy with the eyes except for winged liner but I went for a bright pink lipstick. I wore the Riri hearts MAC lipstick in Pleasure Bomb with Rimmel Apocalips Apocaliptic on top.
I hope you like this outfit post. Leave me any comments below of your favourite bargain find as this dress is definitely one of the cheapest clothing items I’ve bought from the opshop. I’d love to know yours.
