80’s LBD

29 Jan 2012 Permalink

I thrifted this fun little 80’s number over a year ago, and since it was not a piece that worked during pregnancy, it hung in my closet taking up space.  Recently it has also worked as an encouragement piece…reminding me to make the right food choices.

And last night it was debuted for the most perfect occassion…dinner to celebrate my youngest brother turning 21!  Not much tops being with family, chowing on Mexican food, and wearing a cute little black dress.

How was your weekend??

dress, belt, clutch, earrings – thrifted

      It’s hard NOT to buy things for your unpregnant self when you’re knocked up!

    Awesome updated 80s look! That’s generally a decade I stick my nose up at, but you’ve done 80s beautifully!

    Btw, nice new header! 🙂

    I love this dress! I recently gave birth as well (8 weeks ago) and I totally have the same type of clothes that motivate me to lose the baby weight 🙂 You look great!
