When our blogging collective Ahead of the Curve decided on the subject of Plus Size Thrifting I was concerned because I had just written a post a few weeks ago about thrifting, and here was the subject coming up again. But, since my husband and I just retired a couple of years ago, and I still want to be able to spend money on clothes, I set out to find a bargain I liked enough to blog about.
After the dress, I wanted something to dress it up, so I found this Alberto Makali pleated Shirt on ebay.

But then I wanted to find something I already had in my jewelry box. So it seemed like a “Do It Yourself” bracelet, and a gifted pendant that I had never worn would be great choices. And even the elastic belt was a gift that arrived in the package with the dress, although I had not purchased it.
I had a lot of fun with this challenge. Click HERE for some thrifting tips from the Curvy Fashionista.
When I was researching thrifting I came across this lovely quote.
