Yesterday we wrapped up our biggest deadline of the year at work. Needless-to-say, I’ve been a little overwhelmed and exhausted recently. Lots of work and lots of sleep seem to be mutually exclusive options..

Two weeks ago, M took the boys out of town for a weekend and left me at home in his dust. While I don’t want to always be “left behind,” I’ll take that kind of dust on occasion no questions asked. A couple of days at home in peace and quiet were lovely.

Between lots of working and a little bit of blogging while all my boys were gone, I stopped into The Salvation Army. Browsing “mysteriously” turned into two dresses, a blazer, and a few random other things that landed in my cart over the course of about two hours. Funny how that happens (even though I kind of knew it would…)

On my little escapade, I stumbled upon this Emerson Fry dress for $6.99. Oh my! I wasn’t sure if I could top my thrifted giraffe print DVF dress but this might have done it. An Emerson Fry (FYI: made in the USA) dress runs about $275 – $400 a pop. I got mine for $6.99 in basically brand new condition. Not only did my bank account win, but it checks two of the boxes on my 90/10 Socially Conscious Style Challenge.

I’ve had decent success as of late at the thrift shops. It’s always a little bit of luck with a whole lot of patience, but I’m sure it helps that I’m a pretty standard size so I fit into a lot of different brands. I’ll share a round-up of my March purchases, which are definitely within the confines of 90/10 SCSC, soon. For now, here’s my first piece that I’m totally loving both with cognac boots and with gray booties. Each gives the dress a little different vibe.

P.S. I hate April’s Fools Day. Call me a party pooper, but I think it’s dumb.
