Of course I'm an avid reader, and of course I know you are going to come up with the perfect solution to my quandary and prevent any fashion faux pas I would probably otherwise commit. My husband and I are taking a trip for our birthday (why yes, we do have the same birthday) down to Biloxi, Mississippi to see Bill Cosby at a casino. It's a couple months away, but I'm already as giddy as a young schoolgirl. I don't, however, see anything in my closet to wear. What does one don for a night at a casino and a comedy show? A dress? I have no idea! I do know it should be fabulous and include accessories - which I do not have. I need it all! I'm 5'3, wear a size 10 dress, and am pretty blessed in the bosom area. Here's the kicker - can you keep the entire ensemble around $150? A teacher's gotta be thrifty you know... Much admiration and love, Janell"
Yo Janell! I'm Found of You and I'm thrifty to the max. Here are outfits that each come in under $150, as per your request, and are fabulous, also per your request. If I were you, though, I'd wear a Cosby sweater. I'd wear five Cosby sweaters. Any excuse to wear a Cosby sweater is to be taken advantage of. Here is one for your consideration, although I'd pillage the thrift stores for one and have whatever nasty thing I found professionally cleaned. And P.S., if you hate these outfits, I'll come up with more. Ask!
