We've decided to start a new column here at It's The Dress entitled Frugal Friday. With all the issues with the economy right now, many of us cannot splurge on clothing like we once did. There are still good finds out there at stores you'd normally find at the mall. There is no shame in wearing a cute dress you find at one of them, no one will see the tags anyway! Our first column will showcase the Two-Tone Ruffle Dress at Charlotte Russe
. This dress would be great for the office. It has a V-neck with ruffles, two buttons down the bust, a mandarin collar, buckled belt and ruching at the empire waist, side zipper, and bubble cap sleeves. We like the two toned look, which is available in three colors: white, multi, and black.
