frugal feathers: do you work on commission? big mistake!

i have officially turned into that lady that says stuff like, "i can't believe what teenage girls are wearing these days." or "they call this music?" what would you call that? an old lady? well, i'm an old lady, then. cause for sister just sent me this picture and i got a little sick to my stomach.

toddlers and tiaras
did some mom actually think it was ok to dress her three-year old daughter up in spray tan and the hooker outfit from pretty woman? for realsies, this is disgusting.

so i might not have the hooker outfit from pretty woman, but i did find almost an exact replica of this polo dress at a thrift store. for $1.00! yep, i can be the classy julia roberts hooker for a mere dollar. wait, that sounded really bad...

dress ~ vintage, thrifted, $1.00
belt ~ thrifted, $1.99
shoes ~ Target, $19.99
earrings ~ F21, $3.99

happy case i forget to tell you later, i had a really good time tonight.

  2. I need to go shopping with you!!! That dress looks great on you. It can be worn in the fall with one of those slouchy sweaters over it and boots....great find Megan. ....and yeah that photo is sad. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  3. I am MAD with jealousy that you found the polo dress!

  4. Your absolutely right about those toddlers! It's going way over the top lately
    And nice outfit :)

  5. LOVE the dress, it is sooooo the polo dress! Awesome!

  6. Nice transition into the outfit! Those poor toddlers, I just feel so sorry for them. :(

    But, I LOVE THAT DRESS!! Sorry, not yelling at you, it's just so darn cute!! And for a $1? Amazing!

  7. I'll bet the mom of that poor child justifies it by telling anyone who will listen how much her child loves dressing up and competing. I'm sure the almost-baby did NOT ask to dress up like a prosti-tot from a 21 year old movie. Ugh.

    But that $1 dress is amazing and fits you perfectly. You need the giant hat! And to find that child and mentor her in the ways of classy dressing. :)

  8. OMG yes, I'm not even a mom and I can't believe that some moms put their girls in these pageants and make them look older, thats just weird and not right! ...

    on a happier note, LOVE the dress!

  9. Haha, I'm a crabby old lady too. And proud of it! :)

  10. That whole show- Toddler and Tiaras- is so incredibly frightening, I can't even bear to watch those poor children.

    But that dress?? Fantastic!! It looks like it was made just for you!

  11. Maybe it sounded bad, but you look hella better than Julia Roberts in this dress, that's for sure... ! It looks amazing on you.

  12. It IS the exact same dress! And it looks as good on you as it did on her.

  13. Oh, it even twirls! Love you in that dress! So pretty.

    Don't even get me started on Toddlers and Tiaras! YUCK!

  14. i really feel jealous abut your dotted pretty woman look-a-like dress...

    this little girls outfit is so frightening. what is her mother about?!
    yes, i'm an old lady too.

  15. I have the same dress, it's gorgeous, you look great!

  16. AHHHHHH that dress is WONDERFUL! And a dollar?!

    PS I find toddlers and tiaras frightening and yes, dressing your child like a hooker is 100% wrong.

  17. I have a 2 year old and have thought of putting my daughter in pageants but I haven't yet or never will. I just hate what these mothers put their kids through.

    PS Love your dress.


  18. That picture of that child is very disturbing, she looks like an oompa loompa that wasn't making enough money at the Chocolate Factory so she turned to the however, look fabulous. Now, go stomp some divots!
