Frugal Friday

I thought it might be fun to start a weekly tradition of finding less expensive versions of lovely higher end pieces. So without further a due, this #FrugalFriday features a $200 White House | Black Market dress on the right and a $30 Charlotte Russe dress on the left. I bought the WHBM version because I’m an employee and have a much better idea of how those clothes fit me than I do of Charlotte Russe. Even with my discount, the WHBM dress was about 4x as expensive as the dress from Charlotte Russe. The Charlotte Russe dress appears to be much shorter than the WHBM dress, but depending on your lifestyle and where you intend to wear the dress that may not be much of a problem. I attend church regularly and will be interning for a congressman this summer, so I wanted something a little more modest that I could wear in more conservative settings. The Charlotte Russe version, however, is an adorable alternative with a modest silhouette despite its length.

  • [in the voice of sebastian the crab] undah da tree
  • I too went to a horse race 2 weeks ago
  • im pro life, and I’m conflicted, and I think that’s a good thing. And I think the more questions we ask ourselves and our fellow Americans despite what we believe or what we think we know, the better off we’ll all be. I wrote a blog post for the first time in forever and I hope you’ll read it, even if you hate me after. Link in bio, read before bitching. And I’d also encourage you to go over to @backinfebruary_ to read a unique, refreshing, balanced and most importantly compassionate perspective from a single mother that became pregnant unexpectedly.
  • The dress: $6 
the pizza I ate in it: $14
realizing that if I go on enough weird bumble dates I’ll probably write a book and become exorbitantly wealthy: priceless
  • Counting down the days until no one in the continental US can contact me unless I have WiFi and I’m blacked out on a beach somewhere getting burnt to a crisp in Caribbean sun
  • Remember when our parents told us not to talk to people on the internet and I live with someone I met on FB and I’m going to a wedding for someone I met on insta lol
  • Found my Barbie dream house right off of U street 🥰
  • I work hard because I have a dream of stacking hundreds on each blade of a ceiling fan above my bed (that will be mostly ornamental because I’ll have central air) and making it rain
