H E L L O B E A U T I E S!
Yup, you’ve read correctly. I’m wearing a super cute, denim dress from my local Family Dollar. When I was given the task to create a head-to-toe 4th of July outfit using Family Dollar’s Just Be clothing line, I was really excited. Why?!
Well, most bloggers you see are wearing the latest and greatest by Moschino, Balmain, Top Shop, Zara, etc. However the honest to God truth is, not everyone can afford these brands…including some of the bloggers sporting them. Everyone doesn’t have it like that yet. I myself can admit to seeing something I absolutely LOVE on a blogger, clicking on their link to buy only to find its way out of my price range. For the everyday woman and mom it can be tough and it sucks to feel like you can’t keep up with everyone. I’m here to tell you that, YOU DON’T HAVE TO!
|Dress: Family Dollar $15
Sunglass: ZeroUV.com $15
Necklace: Target $20
I grew up on a dollar store budget. My family didn’t have much and many of you have seen me in dollar store/ thrifted items and ain’t even know it. Its not about how much an item costs or the name associated with it. Its all about you! You give the cloths you are wearing LIFE. Trust me, I’ve seen some people in outfits that cost more than my rent and it still looks a hot damn mess. So, no matter where you are in life financially, please know there are options out there for you. No one is going to look at you and see a dress from the dollar store, they are going to look at you and say, “Wow, she’s fabulous?” If I told you this dress was from the dollar store before reading this blog post would you believe me? Would you have guessed where I bought this dress from? You might’ve said Ross, Target, TJ MAXX, but Family Dollar? Nah. You would not have guessed it
When I saw the dress on the hanger, I must admit I wasn’t completely moved by it. But I put it on and it hugged my hips perfectly. Which leads me to my next point. TRY THINGS ON even if it doesn’t LOOK like its going to fit you that way you’d like. You may be surprised…
The sunglasses and necklace are items I owned already went perfectly with this dress. I chose this dress because denim dresses are kind of in right now. Also it was the perfect length and the tie around the waste allowed me to show off that fact that I do indeed have a waistline. Its perfect for walking on the beach (which is what I’ll be doing on the 4th), family BBQ’s and what ever else you may have planned throughout your day.
So if you’re looking for something cute and affordable to wear this 4th of July weekend, stop by your local Family Dollar. You may be surprised at what you’ll find. Sizes go up to 2 and 3x (mine is a 1x).
Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a fabulous 4th of July weekend!
