Vintage View #9


Another vintage dress, another black one at that.

Pretty certain I've worn this before, but not sure I've actually talked in detail about it all.

It's yet again a fabulous find at the Village Thrift Store (or Village Discount Outlet if you want the actual name)in Ohio. I got this one not too long ago while visiting my BFF. (BFF is not as keen on thrift stores as I am, but I really adore her for driving me there and waiting AND WAITING as I scour ever aisle and every rack--Thanks Pal!)

It's a pretty simple dress, just a pretty little lace trim and it's set to go.

Being that it's black, I can kinda make it classy, er Classic, (or am I just puttin' the "ASS" in Class once again?) or whatever one feels like doing with a LBD.
-Black vintage dress, Thrift Store
-Gray cable knit tights, H&M
-Black leather booties, Nine West
-Slender silver watch, X-mas gift
-faux pearls, Thrift Store
So today--it was on with the dainty watch (thanks mom and dad for the xmas present-a style I would've never thought to pick out for myself), and as an afterthought I figured some pearls would do too (luckily I followed the rule, "before leaving the house TAKE-OFF one accessory, they just really AREN'T ME!), and I tried the red lipstick trend I've been seeing in a lot of the fashion mags (although it's a bit too harsh for me, hence why for the rest of the day I opted for my trusty FAVE RAVE--Benetint Lip Gloss).
And oh yeah--I'm in my bathroom; so what!

Next time you're secretly in town, you should call me and we'll go on a stealth mission to the amazing thrift stores in my neck of the woods. Especially on half-price Mondays!
