Payday Pretty Loot | $20 Holiday LBD

Even though I go to a few holiday parties each year, I REALLY resent buying dress-up clothes that can only be worn a time or two.  But when my hubby sprang the news that his company holiday party is THIS weekend (thanks for the warning!), I had to run out and find something to wear.  What a perfect opportunity to take the Payday Pretty challenge to create a $20 holiday look.  Thanks hubs!

So naturally I set out to my favorite inexpensive dress store, Ross.  They always have a great selection and it’s pretty easy to find something under $20 that doesn’t look cheap or sleezy.  Of which I’d prefer to look neither.  But if I had to pick one, it would be cheap…I think.  🙂

I  wasn’t too far into the dress rack when I stumbled across this awesome LBD  for just $19.99.  And who couldn’t use another LBD?  I tried it on and it fit like a glove.  Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Little Black Dress Under $20

This sweet bow back detail is what really sealed the deal!

[Dress:  Ross – $19.99 (Similar)]

Usually I post my Payday Pretty outfit pics on Wednesday but this week I’m going to hold off until next Monday.  Then I can post pics taken before the actual event on Saturday.

And here’s some affordable LBD inspiration!
