Thrifted Looks: Flower Power

By  | 

As a kid, I gotta admit it…I wasn’t a fan of floral print.  I think I was traumatized because my mom seized the opportunity to splash our curtains, towels, and bedspreads in it.  But, after some counseling I’ve come around (just kidding), and I immediately fell in love with this floral print dress at the Housing Works BUY THE BAG Sale at first sight.  Both the dress and cardigan were about .67 cents each.  I mean, seriously….you could get over a whole lot of childhood fashion faux pas at that price 🙂

 I went back and forth on which nude pumps to be my new addition to the wardrobe…..and settled on the Steve Madden Remmedy…and I think it was a pretty good choice.  The neutral tone can compliment so many things that  you’ll wonder what your go-to shoe was before these.

 

 

I believe if you invest in a great pair of shoes or a nice designer hand bag you’ll save money in the long run with wears-per-use (I know it may not seem like it initially, but trust me) and it can tie any outfit together and give it a luxe “look” no matter how much you paid for it.

Dress :: No label (Thrifted)
