10 Cent Dresses from London

So when we were in London a few weeks ago (London, ONATARIO, wow you were impressed there for a second, weren't ya?)  We had some time to kill before an appointment and so we went to this store called Liquidation World.  My kind of place!  There were two HUUUUUGE boxes full of clothing (mostly size 57 yellow elastic waste pants) and the sign said EXTRA 90% off!!!!  Of course I started digging. I found this adorable little soft and stretchy baby girl dress.

Here was the price tag.  I was shocked however, when it rang up to 10 CENTS!!!!!  Hubby was already heading for the car, but that was something I couldn't let go.  I remembered seeing a few more.  I did a full sprint back to the big boxes and started pulling little black dresses out.  I managed to grab five altogether, plus an odorable little polo onsie ALSO FOR 10 CENTS!! The dress was super cute just plain-o that Sunday on little miss Tori, but with so many of the plain little dresses, I figured it'd be fun to jazz 'em up a little. 

Now GET THIS.  My mother made this little rosette for me out of an old T shirt.  Big deal you say.  Well my boys happened to be dying easter eggs that morning and being someone on the hoardish side, I couldn't dump all that dye.  Good thing, cuz only about an hour later, it came in right handy - I used it to dye the rosette!  Worked great!  Not sure how it'll come out in the wash, however....  Then I sewed a black button into the middle, and sewed it onto the dress.

Sewed a few turquoise beads on the pocket and.........

it's fancified!!  Stay tuned for the next little black dress makeover! :)


  1. What a great Deal!!! You embellished it lovely!

  2. Adorable, but Kams, I want to see Tori WEARING the dress:):):) It looks SOOO cute, I bet she looked like a little doll!

  3. What a bargain, and it looks so cute with your flower and buttons. I bet it is darling on your daughter.

  4. Oh, my goodness! You really scored well! :)
