I found this dress in a consignment store in town. When I tried this shirt dress on, I could not help, but buy it. It fits perfectly. The teal color is very flattering with my skin shade. And as you know I love sleek dresses. This beauty was less than $20! Who could resist?
I paired the dress with my floral pumps that have the teal color in the print. I accessorized with the black pearl necklace that was a gift from my husband. The pearls have some teal shine to them. Since after a clear night, morning temperatures are in the lower 50s (~10oC), I added a trench coat for the commute to work. I wanted the teal of the dress to be the statement so the taupe tote was just perfect. It was a consignment find last summer.
Do you thrift? What do you look for when you are in a consignment store? What were your big scores? Send me an email. I want to know.
Top of the World Style linkup-party
Thanks to those of you who linked up last week. It was a big, great party. The link you clicked the most was by Crissy from Some Velvet Morning in her cool summer romper. In the dog days of July, a romper is just perfect. My favorite OOTD was by Jean from Jean of all Trades. She found her awesome top at a clothing exchange. I can see why she had to give the top a new home. It suits her perfectly and is great and fun with these yellow jeans.
