Progress Report on My Area & A Deal on A Dress

Still working on this...

Audra and I went to a wedding yesterday. I wore my $4 dress from the thrift store! It fits perfectly and is a great length on me. By the way, mid-knee looks fabulous on most women. Check your hem lengths. Too long and you may look a bit dowdy. Shorter lengths are best worn with lower heels. Remember to find your "diamonds" for your best hem lengths.

My daughter, my MAD BootY Camp partner and my pal.


  1. I think you look fabulous in that dress! I cannot believe it was only $4 ...what a bargain.

    Btw, my sister owns a consignment shop in Clearwater called Clothesline 2 on Drew Street. If you're ever in the area, I hope you'll stop by and tell her that her sister Debbie of Heart Choices sent you by. She's a little rough around the edges but has such love to give to everyone. She's a hugger and is very kind.

    Hugs to you Melanie,

  2. Love that $4.00 dress. :) Looks great on you. Now I'm off to read about the diamonds.

  3. You guys are stunning. And the office space looks like it's shaping up! I need to find me a $4 dress that looks that good!

  4. You two are sooo cute! A 4 dollar dress? looks wonderful! And hey your desk is lookin' good!

  5. You two are adorable! ADORABLE!

  6. Melanie,

  9. You ladies are lookin fab-u-lous. Lovin your thrifty store finds. Thats my kind of shopping too. :) Thanks for the tip on dress length. I will have some hemming to do. Right now, I'm clearing out the clutter from my kitchen counters. It's a major drop zone for STUFF. It's hard for me to relax or prepare good meals amongst clutter. No what I mean Vern??lol...

  12. I'm too embarassed to post any photos of my office space, but I do have a goal to get cleaned up before the kids get out of school in 2 1/2 weeks, so we'll see.

    You look fantastic, mama Dorsey.
