I'm a firm believer than when you find a great dress, you buy it. I figure that way you're never scrambling for something to wear at the last minute when you get invited somewhere fabulous. If it doesn't fit just right don't be afraid to have it altered, if you got a great deal and you can get it fitting perfectly, it's worth it. Lucky for me, my Mom does all my alterations for free.
Other great dressed I got for under 50 bucks...
This Jessica Simpson dress I found at Marshall's in September and ended up wearing for New Years Eve - $39.
$20 at American Eagle - it's Navy (bad pic - sorry). Haven't worn it out yet.
Also American Eagle - 20 dollars over Christmas. Wore it to see Wicked.
One of my blog friends is always posting awesome outfits and she inspired me to share with you all some of my great recent finds.
