Dolly styles 99 cent Sweater Dresses

Hello  once again, fabuless fashionistas. Vicky and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new member of our Fifty Thrifty and Fabuless team. Her name is Dolly and she is a dressform. Dolly had been living in “garage apartment”,  just hanging around being idle.  Not much of a life, right?! So I rescued Dolly, brought her home and gave her a modeling job! Today she will be wearing sweater dresses. To tell the truth I am glad she got this gig as it is still warm here in the South, despite it being October.  This week the temperatures have been in the mid eighties! But that’s okay, Dolly  can take the heat! I currently have four sweater dresses in my wardrobe. Two were purchased last year and the others just in the past few weeks, but get this , all of the dresses were just 99 cents apiece! Now that is what I call fabuless! So with no further ado, hereeee’s Dolly!



Cream Color Cowl Neck sweater dress by ana A New Approach


Changing up the look with a brown belt.  Short tan lace up boots/Rampage. Red hoop earrings/Cato. Tan and red Betty Boop purse complete the look. Dress, boots, belt and purse all Goodwill purchases


The Black and White look with a touch of pink.  Black belt with gold buckle purchased from Goodwill. Short black ankle style boots/BG Aries were a gift. Pink symmetrical earrings from Cato.  Black and white striped bag with pink bow/Bestsey Johnson. The bag was a Goodwill purchase and was only $7.99.



Black, white and yellow look. Tall black patent leather boots/Franco Sarto. Black elasticized belt/No brand listed. Black and white polka dot earrings/Cato. Golden yellow/black detail purse/Kate Spade New York.  Belt, boots and bag all Goodwill purchases.




Purchased at Goodwill last year.


The 4th and final look of this versatile dress.  Red tri-buckled belt/Goodwill purchase. Red purse with white polka dots and bow . Black Suede fringed booties/gift. Red wool cap with floral flourish purchased from Kmart.


Bag by Roberta Gandolfi purchased at Goodwill.


3/4 length sleeved dress, tan with black stripes and pink trim by DESIGN HISTORY Tall Brown Suede boots/Madeline, a Goodwill buy. Pink droplet earrings were a gift


Added a black double buckle belt (no brand listed. Got it at Goodwill) and short black boot for a different look. Changed the earrings to the pink symmetrical ones for a funkier look.



MIA Boots purchased at GW. Love the back detail. Gives an outfit a “tougher” edge


This short sleeve tan dress by Extra Touch has black and white stripes with an asymmetrical neckline and trim with a cute button detail. This was purchased at Goodwill last year. White and silver earrings/Cato. Once again I have paired this dress with the brown suede Madeline boots.





Same dress new look.  Leather vest with silver zipper/MANART, purchased at GW a couple of years back. Black suede fringe booties by Breckcelles were a Christmas gift last year. To “top” off the outfit I added a motorcycle type brimmed hat.


A closer view of the hat I received from a friend.


I love this black and off white patterned dress. The tag had been cut out so I do not know the brand. Added a black elastic belt with silver buckle, silver jewelery and black fringed suede bag and black suede boots complete the look. This is my “anonymous” outfit, as the dress, boots, belt and bag all have no brand listed! All but the jewelery was purchased at Goodwill.


The silver earrings  were created and handmade by Vicky herself.  Her beautiful creations are called Transformations. The silver cuff bracelet was purchased at a yard sale. 

So that is it. My four fabuless 99 cent dresses.  I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I styled them.

My thanks to Dolly for “taking the heat” and putting on sweaters in our ever warm October weather.  You will be seeing more of our new friend. I think she is going to help us decide what costume to wear for Halloween this year. We don’t know yet what it will be but we do know that it will be  frightfully fabuless, and scary cheap!

Till next time be thrifty and stay fabuless!

Teresa and Vicky

    This is fabulous. It was so much fun to watch ways you styled Dolly. She seems like a great partner. She doesn’t get tired, she doesn’t get sweaty, and you don’t have to feed her.
