what I wore; not so plain jane - The Dainty Squid

what I wore; not so plain jane

Thursday, May 31, 2012

the details 
dress - thrifted / vintage
jacket - thrifted
belt - thrifted
camera bag - c/o ONA
shoes - c/o BC Footwear (last year)

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite dress. I found it buried in between a bunch of other clothes at Goodwill a while back. I was a little unsure of it since it seemed so plain but for a dollar I figured it was worth the risk. BEST DOLLAR EVER SPENT. I really love everything about this dress. It's the best color and the cut is just perfect. It feels so feminine and sweet. Once again, one of the downfalls of thrifting a piece of clothing you love is that you can't go back and buy it in a zillion more colors - because if that was an option I'd own this baby in every color of the rainbow!

Hope you're having an excellent day!
xoxo

I used to go there when I was living in New York. Also, I love your nails, I feel like they are going to appear at your weekly nail post! Oo wow it's raining now. :)

  10. The color of that dress is soooo beautiful!! I've been trying to find a denim jacket in thrift stores for months and I can't find one that fits right, yet! Now it's summer heat and no jackets for me, I suppose I'll still look though.

    Super cute as always!

    Oh wait! THAT BELT! Swoooon!

  15. It's a very beautiful color. And when you have a really plain base for your outfit, you can afford to go completely wild with accessories, so that's a plus. Love the sleepy bunny pin!

  34. I am not a huge fan of brooches, but I would definitely wear that bunny pin. Also, I don't know why, but I never manage to score the same thrifting deals as everyone else. I love that $1 dress.
