Happy New Year!

As a bargain shopper, I just wanted to share my wonderful holiday dress find. My black and white, knee length, halter from Forever 21 was quite a steal at $25. I bought it back in Novemeber and was able to wear it for my holiday work party, as well as the New Year's Eve celebration I attended. I can probably wear it for my friend Melissa's wedding rehersal dinner, too. (Melissa is also pictured above, wearing a $40 dress found at Macy's this past summer).

Why spend big bucks on something just to wear it a few times? If you're like me, you'll probably only put it on twice before u spill/tear/grow out of, or ruin it in some other tragic fashion!

Before I even read your post, I was hoping it was about your dress because it's oh-so-cute! It's versatile, flattering on you, and was affordable. Now if that ain't worth the purchase, I don't know what is!!! Looks like you had a great time, and thanks for the shout-out. You KNOW I'm all about Forever 21 too!!! I think my next shopping trip will be to Pasadena's H&M store for more chic, affordable stuff...haven't been there FOREVER. Gotta try out the new Cavalli collection!
