Fashion Friday: The cocktail dress

calvin klein red dress

I love a good deal and I love fashion. I do not love spending a lot of money to look great. I have to admit I am a name brand junkie and with paid off credit cards I intend to stay fashionable on a frugal budget. I often wonder what kind of dress should I wear to a cocktail party. I want to stand out in a good way. I love colors. I decided this was the perfect dress for three reasons.

1) The color. It is in the jewel family and I will not drowned in a sea of black dresses

2) The details are subtle and classic.

3) The price. I got this dress at Plato’s closet for just $15.00. The brand is Calvin Klein I imagine it retailed for over $89.00.  I also had to provide my own belt just for fun which I did from goodwill at the high price of $1.00. The animal print heels were added for fun because I love my shoes.  I say you can have as many pairs of fun shoes as you want if you pay just $2.50 for nine west shoes.

I think I will look great and feel even better knowing I spent under $20.00 to look amazing! I love a good deal it just makes you look better.

What do you think? Hot or not?

    Totally hot! One of the hottest things is the price, knowing you look like a million bucks for under $50 can put a smile on your face.

    Wow what a bargain. Every woman needs a decent cocktail dress in her wardrobe. Another tip to save money is to buy it in the sale. Though this will mean buying in advance presuming you’ll have an event to wear it to in the future.
