Madewell Dress

People, people, PEOPLE…

it PAYS to know your brands!

The other day I was at Savers, searching for 1930’s fashions.

Why, you ask?

Because I was just cast (in our local community theatre) as Alice Sycamore in “You Can’t Take it With You.”




I decided to search through the nightgowns to see if I could find one that would pass as an evening gown.




Instead, I found this!

It’s a Madewell brand shirtdress!


Now, I knew this brand was expensive but I didn’t realize just HOW expensive.

I was shook


when I found the original listing for this  dress (sold in 2015)…

Thank goodness I know my brands…

and that Savers thought this was a robe…

and that I made a donation and was given a 20% off coupon…

and that this was tagged at only $5.49 to begin with.

I scored this beauty for $4.39!!


Have a fabulous weekend! Perhaps you should check out your local thrift store???
