  1. all great choices….and so affordable! Love that vintage ballgown…only need the invite to go with it!

  2. And you included a ball gown! I loved all of those dresses, especially the H&M ones. Perfect choices for holiday parties.

  3. Love these ideas. I am also a bargain junkie. My entire post yesterday was about all my finds for under $20. Makes me excited seeing everyone else’s too.

  4. THANK YOU!!! I don’t know if you heard me talking about the thing I have to go to on Wed., but let’s hope Macy’s can deliver on time!

  5. BTW–use code SAVINGSFF for Macy’s, and I got an ADDITIONAL 25% off, so it came to $27.xx, but then I had to pay $20 for shipping 🙁 because my event is on Wed and I couldn’t take a chance on 3-6 days. But still, only $47.xx with the express shipping!
