Sheath or Shift?


Dress: thrifted
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Tignanello

Although this dress is probably from the ’90s, something about the silhouette, waist cutouts and print make it seem sort of late ’60s to me. I like how it’s somewhere between a sheath and a shift — just a bit shaped and not too clingy.

I went shopping today with my yard sale earnings, and it was pretty cool to buy a few new things (and a few more used things from Goodwill). I hit the sale accessory bins at Urban Outfitters first, where I found some of those fabric-covered knot headbands they’ve had for a while. They were originally $16 each, but they were only $4.99 on sale! I’ve been wanting to try wearing some hair accessories, so I bought three of them: one in cheetah print, one in red and white gingham and one in a blue and pink floral print. Now let’s see if I have the guts to wear them.

After Urban I went to H&M in search of yellow shoes and instead ended up with a cream sundress with a black bow print that I really should not have spent money on, but it fit so well and I can think of lots of ways to layer it when the weather gets cooler.

Finally, I stopped by Goodwill and bought a blouse, plus a vintage short-sleeved sweater and skirt that were 50% off. I should put the sweater in my Etsy shop, but...I don’t know if I can part with it yet. Maybe it will end up in there after I wear it a couple of times.

By the way, I also recently added a few more items to the shop! My mom found some of them in Colorado and brought them to me when she came to visit recently.

  4. Cute little dress. These are the types of things I always pass up in thrift store because I can never see the potential. This looks lovely on you.
