Can you believe, I found this awesome dress in a thriftstore

Shirt dress thrift store find

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?

Slow down fashion, search for classic high quality pieces in thrift stores. #thrifting #slowfashion Click To Tweet

How I styled my thrifted dress

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.

Top of the World Style linkup-party

Thanks for linkup up to last week’s 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.
