Fashion Friday #3: Bright & Blue

Standard

Outfit Details:
Shirt-dress: Thrifted
Belt: Mall
Leggings: Walmart
Shoes: Gifted

I was out thrifting with Bradley and Miss Kate when we spotted this brand new shirt-dress, bright as day with tags all a-hanging, sitting all alone at the very end of an aisle. I had considered and dismissed it, assuming its size to be a bit off, but my wonderful boyfriend knows when to encourage me to try something on. I was pretty darn pleased with the fit.

The only problem I’m encountering is, as you’ll see in the very last picture, that space between the buttons just above my belt keeps trying to give the world a peek inside. I’ve tried safety pinning this shut and I’ve considered glue dots, but I’m afraid the glue will stick there forever. Maybe I just need to fiddle with it a bit longer. Any ideas?

I gotta say I’m loving my silhouette here. I’ve thrifted another shirt-dress after being so inspired by this one, and I can’t wait until it’s outta the wash and into my closet. I’ve managed quite a few great finds since we’ve been shopping around to improve Brad’s wardrobe; I’m excited to share! These shoes were another great hand-me-down from Katie.

Thanks for stopping by for another Fashion Friday! Enjoy your weekend!

New Featured Project: Flowered Sundress

Standard

Hey, internet! Today I’d like to introduce my first featured project ever – an awesome, airy, warm weather dress that I’ve been dreaming about and not doing for over a year. The very lucky pattern to be graced by my fingertips is the lovely V8727, a stunning little number and the next step on my journey towards a figure-flattering wardrobe.

I’ve also managed to find the prettiest fabric in the valley! I was a little disappointed at its price, and spent hours looking around Joann for something that was cheaper and prettier, but lo and behold, it was on sale after all(and shh! Don’t tell anyone but it’s actually just quilting cotton…) I just couldn’t resist.

A Day in the Garden

Way at the bottom here you’ll see the tippy top of my thumb peeking out, let’s say it’s to help you get an idea of the scale of the print. It’s called “A Day in the Garden” and you just might find it at your local Joann Fabrics. If so, please don’t buy it; it’s mine.

In other news, you’ll be hearing from me again this Friday, as it will be 4-20 and I have a very special post readied for the stonier crafters out there. Not you, of course. Thanks for reading!
