Gal Pals! Imagine this beaded number flowing all the way down to the floor? A fully beaded gown Heavy with Luxury and with MAJOR POP! Do you have the visual?
Now look at the photos above… That’s looking at something through the eyes of being Polished for Pennies! A few months ago I found this fully beaded gown above for $20 at Jomar. The pearls, the pop, the PIZAZZ! I had to have it. But knowing the full gown was just a little too much for me, I took it to a seamstress and got it shorten to a mini! With a Balmain vibe and a Polished for Pennies price, this little number was the perfect piece to rock at the Emmy’s I attended this past weekend! I was nominated for best “Feature Reporter”. Now, I didn’t win, but I will tell you this. I felt like a million dollars in a $20 dollar dress and regardless of bringing home the trophy, I myself felt like a prize in all this POP!
It’s all about how you feel, and looking and feeling good doesn’t have to cost a fortune! Just an eye for polished potential and enough confidence to be bold, be different, take a chance, and SHINE!
So the next time you’re at that thrift store, Salvation Army, Jomar, or Impact… keep your eyes peeled for pieces you can modify for pennies! Taking this dress in and up cost me $40. So total I spent $60 for a one of a kind fully beaded dress that I know no one would have!
That’s Polished Confident!
