This is probably one of the more under-utilized pieces in my closet, but when Bri announced that the Third Thursday Threads was the LBD, I knew I should pull this out again... even though I'm posting this on a Monday instead of Thursday (technically I did wear this last Thursday). Oh well. Some day I'll get on schedule with blogging :) 

Dress: New York and Co.
Cardigan: New York and Co.
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: Edith Marie Jewelry

I got this dress almost 4 years ago now, but it was during a buy one get one 50% off sale, plus I had another coupon or discount, so this dress ended up being around $9! Can't beat that price! It's supposed to be cooler later this week, so I'm planning on wearing it with my chambray underneath. I don't know how it will turn out, but we will see! 

Did you all have a good weekend? Ours kept us busy. I got some cleaning and laundry done, we went to the movies and watched a couple at home, we (hubby mostly) finished a cement project on my parent's driveway, we went thrifting and I walked out empty-handed! I'm really looking forward to this next three-day weekend though. We are planning on going to the State Fair and I'm super excited! 

This is the first time wearing this dress on my blog, but I wore this cardigan one other time here. I don't know why, but I have a hard time wearing 3/4 sleeve tops and cardigans. I feel like it doesn't keep me warm enough in the winter and colder-weather months, but it's too hot to wear in the summer. Does anyone else have this problem or am I the only one?


  1. What a perfect LBD! Love how you styled it with the cardigan and I think it will look great with the chambray!


  2. Awesome find on the dress. You sure got your money out of it. Also love your statement necklace.

  3. You cannot go wrong with this dress! I can't wait to see your layering attempts. I've never thought about layering a chambray underneath a cotton/jersey dress before--great idea! Thanks so much for linking up to Sunday Best!

  4. The shape of your steal of a LBD is timeless and I am crushing over that striped gray cardigan which looks great over it. Enjoy this last week of August hun!

    P.S. Thanks for your latest sweet comments. They made my day! =)

  5. That is definitely a steal -- $9 for a dress, I'm loving it :) Also, while I know we are talking about the LBD, I want to give a shout out to that gorgeous pink necklace. Beautiful!!!!

  6. Ummm how does a $9 dress fit you so perfectly? Fo' real. And that necklace is LOVELY.

  7. I was on the hunt for the perfect LBD for forever, then I've hardly worn it since. Whomp, whomp. You look great!

  8. Wow! I love it when I get something so perfect and versatile for such a great deal! You really scored!
