Thrifting Tuesdays-Going Green (part 1)

Today I’m going green! One dress at a time! Hey, why buy a new dress when you can buy a recycled one?!
And chances are that you’ll be the only gal in town sporting it!

I’ll start with my latest and most favor-it-est one.

This lucky green number was found a couple of weeks ago at my local Goodwill store. Unfortunately, they were not running any specials, so I had to dish out $5.99 for this baby… kinda steep for thrifting, but I had to have it! The dress is not perfect.. it has a couple of faded spots which I hope to remedy by dyeing.

It’s a cotton knit made by Talbots.

Ladies, you can never go wrong with a classic cut and a classic color. You can always use your accessories to modernize the look.

I tried a couple different things with it.

My favorite is the black belt look, (cuz it’s 100% thrifted!).
Which one do you like best?

    Love them all but my fav is with the camel colored accessories. The dress is awesome by the way…I think you’re inspiring me to start wearing more dresses . :). Oh, and now I know the secret to finding cute cheap shoes-Burlington Coat Factory…who knew?!

    • Yes the Burlington Coat Factory is one of those places you don’t think about first, but you should always check! btw, those are the shoes and belt i wore to Nomer’s wedding
