Eyeglasses and Camouflage shirt F21, Vintage Dress, vintage belt, and vintage yellow heels all Thrifted

Hello all!
      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.



  1. I've always wanted to try this style, but I fear that I might be too top heavy for something like this! Olivia Palermo and Blair(e?) of Atlantic-Pacific always do such a great job pairing shirts under dresses like this!

    Also, thumbs up for mental lists while thrifting. I always kept a mental list, but now I keep a running list on my iPhone.

    1. Yes, that's one tricky thing about this look. I just noticed that all the ladies are wearing sunglasses! Ha!
