Thrifty Twosday (LBD edition)

I wanted to showcase the "little black dress"/LBD in this edition of Thrifty Twosdays.

"Thrifting" or thrift store shopping, can change the entire concept of the LBD.  It can take you out of the normal confines of a standard look, and open your mind to an LBD with a little more personality.

A faux wrap around dress from the 80's paired with some sexy stilettos will have you turning heads while you reminisce.  Perfect for any night on the town!

Faux wrap around dress: vintage, thrifted ~$5.00

For a little more sophistication: tone it down with sling back pumps and a classic retro look that pairs pleats and ruffles.  
Belted dress with pleats: vintage: thrifted ~$3.00 50% off thrift store price! 

If "thrifting" just isn't for you, there are still good deals to be had on unconventional LBDs all over the place.  For instance this ruffled number paired with a pair of peep-toe pumps is perfect for a party or even a hot date:

Black and gold ruffled dress: $12.00 marked down from $120.00 Connected Apparel (Elder Beerman's) That's 90% off!

Do you have a favorite LBD?  Show us!  And show off!
