Retro Mini Dress

After painting my nails a bright red, I was in the retro mood, so cinched myself into this (really short) dress. On a hot, NOT windy day, this dress is wonderful, and makes me feel so breezy.

I love this bag. Every time I wear it I feel instantly cooler and more interesting, probably because I got it at a thrift store for about $5, and that makes me feel great. Great deals are great!

I curled my hair, parted it to the side, and pinned my bangs into a subtle twist, which is sorta like a very tiny victory roll.

I've realized I need to start buying more accessories. All I own are earrings! I've been wanting to wear bangles or stacked bracelets, but I don't own any! My plan is to find some cool gold-colored ones at thrift or vintage stores. I think I used to feel intimidated by any non-earring jewelry, but I'm ready to be adventurous!

Dress: F21
Flats: F21
Bag: Thrifted

  2. I love the dress! And it's doubly cool for being a $5 thrift store find. I need to find more floral prints like this...my spring wardrobe is lacking!

    1. Well - the bag was $5, but the dress was given me by a friend, so that's even cheaper than $5!

      Go find some florals!

  7. Great deals are great indeed! I don't know what it is, but whenever I find something and it's really cheap, it just makes me happy every time I see that item:)

    Your dress is lovely too, I love the zipper in the back.

    Hope you'll find some nice bracelets soon!

    1. I completely know what you mean! It just feels so satisfying to score something for a good price, especially if I'm on a tight budget.

      I have yet to find any bracelets, I gotta start looking harder!
