Day Dressing




Continuing the thrift finds theme from the last post, here's another item I got along with the plaid skirt. It's not the most well-made thing, but again, it was less than a dollar! It's a little big in the shoulders but I haven't gotten around to fixing that. The texture is definitely interesting—it's almost like suede but smoothed into a flat, matte fabric. I thought it would be nice to pair it with Tokyo Bopper 870s which has a similar feel to it.


The tiered top reminds me a bit of a Victorian nun habit and combined with the absence of a collar the whole dress has an air of somberness to it. Not a bad thing in my opinion and the shoes add a bit of humor to the outfit. Probably my favorite thing about the dress is how easy and versatile it is to wear. I've worn it as a dress, as a light coat and over another skirt and I barely scratched the surface on what else to pair with it. Not a bad deal at all for one dress.

  1. Not a bad deal at all. You have a great knack of making these items look like any designer would have been worthy to make them.

I value freedom of speech but there's also a thing called respect.

Play nice.
