Eyeglasses and Camouflage shirt F21, Vintage Dress, vintage belt, and vintage yellow heels all Thrifted
Here is a funny story, I have been hunting for a strapless dress since the Fall of 2013. I even added it to my "Look For" list. Yes! I have a list I take with me when I thrift shop, mental list that is. It keeps me from buying things I don't need. So it wasn't until Saturday that I discovered this 80's vintage dress in my very own closet. I completely forgot about it since it was put away along with other summer pieces. I must have thrifted this dress about three summers ago.
Initially, I have been wanting a strapless dress to style it with a white collar slouchy button up shirt. Once I found my dress, I started looking through my closet for the perfect white top to wear it with only to find out that I don't own that kind of top. Ha! All of my white blouses are vintage, with funky collars, eyelet details, and silly collar trims. So I wound up wearing it with my camouflage shirt from F21.
To get a better idea of a classy way to wear that strapless dress in your closet, take a look at some style Pinspiration:
Most of these are styled with a white collared shirt, but don't be afraid to add a little twist. You can wear a fun printed top, t-shirt, or a turtle neck sweater for the fall.
you can find me on pinterest here.
I have been wanting a dress from Modcloth, but for what ever reason I never get to set aside enough money. Well...A few weeks ago while thrift shopping I found this darling dress that happens to also be available for purchase at Modcloth here.
Sadly after wearing the dress I realized that it was too big for me. I also realized that I wouldn't be able to wear it with a top over or under with out affecting it's unique look and style. So to the Shop it goes.
I hope you all have a pleasant week!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We have been having some nice hot summer days here in Chicago. All my cousins want to talk about is going to the lake, but since we are all very busy we haven't had a chance to plan.
Upon entering my summer break, I can't help but set up goals for myself. Goals that I hope to accomplish before the fall. Its in my nature to plan 24/7. I always like to have everything planned out, even if I'm not successful in accomplishing such plans. Am I the only one?
What are some of your plans for your summer/summer break?
Outfit details: Thrifted old navy blouse and and sleeveless dress, heels are from ebay.
I love that I had perfectly matching heels for this outfit, but I instead wore something completely different. Sometimes is fun not to match. It makes you stand out and unique! Don't be afraid not to match one day. Try it! If you are not sure how you can do it, do a little research online. Visit pinterest and get inspired.
Wearing: Lazy Bones dress, Ralph Lauren Shirt, Vintage brooch, vintage leopard heels, vintage beaded purse: All thrifted!
Only three weeks of school left! There is so much to do. So much to turn in! I'm going crazy and not doing much. I still cant believe I am graduating! Finally! Ahh! Times like these only help me push harder for the finish line. But this is not the end but the beginning of a beautiful career! I'm so excited to see what is to come. I'm looking forward to my summer break. I have rediscovered how fun it is to read and I have a line of books ready for me to tackle.
What plans do you have for this summer?
Have a lovely weekend!!
