What a find -

Look at this vision of beauty I picked up a few weeks ago for my Alyssa:

Isn't it just the most angelic Easter dress for the sweet Lulish?

The details grabbed me instantly: Alyssa dress3

Alyssa dress4


The color is most consistent with the details photos. I'd call it blush pink.

Get this: I got it for pennies on the dollar, literally. How? I shop at a children's clothing consignment store, and it was listed at $6.99. Be still my beating heart. I just paid for tax after I used my trade-in credit. Moral of the story - don't poo poo consignment stores, because there are some gems in there for rock bottom prices.

A similar dress is selling for $80 right now. {Doing the happy dance} My girls and I love our consignment store clothing. Especially when they're as cute as this blush pink dress.


What thrifty finds make your heart go pitter patter? :)
