Denim Dress

Over the last few months I’ve been on the thrifting hunt for a simple denim dress, and at last I found one! It’s more of a soft chambray denim, but the detail won me over…and all for under $6!


I wore this outfit for a night out with some of my best girlies, it was a blast!


I found this amazing vintage pendant locket necklace at an estate sale the other day. Don’t estate sales have the coolest treasures?!


And here is a shot of my very messy updo. Haha. I’m trying to master the art of a messy updo, especially in this heat! Still working on it! ;) And this minty hair pin was actually an upcycle of an item I walked away with from that clothing swap a few months back. It was very blingy-diamond-looking, but with a quick coat of nail polish, voila!


And these thrifted sandals are getting SO much wear this summer b/c they are so simple, easy, and versatile! They can be worn tied up, gladiator style (like this!) or just tied down around the ankle for a more subtle look.


Happy July, ya’ll!


Outift Details: chambray dress, thrifted $5.50; vintage pendant necklace, estate sale $4; gladiator sandals, thrifted $1.50; glasses, Bonlook


Ang (last seen here) came over the other night and we went thrifting. She just looked so cute I had to capture her cozy attire! She and I have so much fun putting outfits together and sharing our love for fashion on a budget!

Outfit Breakdown (me): red cable knit sweater: Ann Taylor (thrifted), $2.50, striped jersey skirt: JCPenny, $5 (on sale), mustard tights: Target, $4, brown lace-up booties: Payless, $25, red belt: from another shirt, diy detachable/reversible collar (see the other side here)
