Thrifty Thursday: $30 Outfit Challenge – Tokito November 3, 2011 By Karen Andrews 5 Comments Hello! You are welcome to subscribe to my updates for free. Happy reading! This Tokito dress came along just at the right time. I began and ended my month of Frocktober wearing it because, as all Melburnians know, just because it’s spring doesn’t mean it’s going to be warm. Its long sleeves and length are weather appropriate. Add onto this its deep v-neckline which for the reasonably busty woman, such as style-gurus Trinny and Susannah say, is flattering, so I’m happy. The only thing I don’t like is the black ribbon tie. It’s not really practical (I have to do a double knot to keep it in place) and I’m not sure it adds anything of value to the overall look of the dress. The shoes have turned out to be a little perplexing. When I put them on I can’t decide whether they’re cute or… well… ‘old womanish’. What do you think?

Not 100% on the shoes, though, but then as I do not wear heels I’m probably the wrong person to pass comment on them!

Green eggs & spam, I think. Kathy recently posted..Seven lunch alternatives to the sandwich Reply Veronica says November 3, 2011 at 7:57 pm I like the dress, but I like the Savers prices even more!

Reply Karylle Lynch says November 3, 2011 at 8:46 pm Hi Kathy, I so love the dress and I’m so jealous that you got this set for less than $30. Great finds indeed. This inspired me to go thrift shopping.
