Total Cost: $4
I've been scouring the web for over a month now in search of a purple dress for a wedding that Matt and I will be attending in a few weeks, and as the wedding date got closer and closer I had yet to find a single purple dress,apparently the color purple has been banned on these here interwebs. apparently. So I did what any rational person would do, I told Matt I'd go in my birthday suit before I'd pay money for an over priced ugly dress....and then I stomped off to resolve my woes out at the thrift store. Thrift stores are simply the best for resolving woes I tell you what, if finding nasty old clothes won't cheer you up then the people definitely will. I walked into the thrift store and began my usual wanderings. I ran my hands over the metal bars of the clothing racks and stared at the patterns on the silk blouses, not looking for anything in particular, I walked over to the furniture, sat on a brick orange velvet recliner and rocked my woes away while the man next to me got on his knees to smell the black, saggy butt leather couch next to me. It was weird, and I smiled. Then finally after rummaging through doo dads of old fabric and glass bears with beady eyes I made my way to the dress section, and then I saw her, glimmering in all of her purple glory, and even though she was saggy as heck and nothing special she had potential, and even better, she was the perfect color!
