Hidden Gem

When it comes to thrifting, I don't tend to have much luck!  The items I find are usually way too big or small, have stains or smell really bad.  A few weeks back I dropped off some stuff at my local thrift store and decided to browse the racks while I was there.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I found this 100% silk dress (tags still attached!) for $7!  It's everything I look for in a dress!  Flattering drop waist, 3/4 length sleeves, ruffled neck line and pin dot detailing.  SOLD!  What's your greatest thrift find?

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!  xo

  11. It's funny because you can't tell if your dress is thrifted or if it's $200. I love the look! PS: Ever been to an occasional boutique sale? I go to one where they pick the best of the thrift store for you, and then you pick from that. Makes it easier!

  13. Stunning outfit! I have the same experience with vintage shopping, but give it enough time and some elbow work, you can normally find something that you this is a treasure. I always think to myself, what is wrong with this that no one has bought it yet, ha! Ok, I just checked my email and saw you commented on my new post as I am writing this! - kind of crazy, but I like it!!

  15. Very Cute! Great find! I think I have been blessed by the thrift gods because I find cool stuff all the time! But I also go all the time- I think that helps! My best find ever might be my silk Chanel scarf!
