WIWW - Thrift Store Find

I found this dress at a thrift store a few months back and am just now getting around to wearing it. I got it because it was totally something I would wear and with the tags still on it, $10 seemed like a bargain. However, there was one small issue, it was a size 4. The cut seemed forgiving and this was too good of a deal to pass up, so home with me it went.

I was extremely disappointed when I got home and tried it on for the first time. Yes, it was meant for a size 4 body, not this size 8 gal. Away in my closet it went where I tried to sell it. With no one chomping at the bit, I decided to give it one more try. How this made sense in m head is beyond me, but I'm glad I gave it one more shot, because it didn't seem half bad!

I think the trick was tights. It seems so simple, but for some reason when I put on a short dress and my pasty legs aren't covered either with tights or a nice tan, the entire outfit seems ruined. All this dress needed was a little accessorizing, tights, and Voila!
