thrifty





dress  thrifted
shoes  chelsea crew
tote bag  filson (from j. crew)

I love a good novelty print. The goofy hat print on this dress won me over at my neighborhood Goodwill, as did the ruffled collar and loose babydoll shape. I've been having some excellent luck at the thrift stores lately. Just today I purchased the perfect black leather cross-body satchel, a giant framed photo of two kittens wearing red bows around their necks (!), a sheer hot pink lingerie jumpsuit (I can't think of a better way to describe it, but it's insane), a furry fox purse, and a beautiful bright blue flapper-style dress that I plan on putting in the shop soon. I'm going to need a Fancy Fine warehouse soon!

Summer is the best time for thrifting as so many people are moving/donating goodies! Love the hat print of your dress, I too adore novelty prints.

You should post a picture of the kitty picture you found, sounds adorable.
