One Floral Dress, Two Looks!August 28, 2014
Need a daily dose of fashion fun? Let’s stay connected …
Cute dress, and I would say that is a steal. Even in goodwills you can't find a dress for $3 anymore. Rachel xo
Right? It's a little local thrift store for a local charity and such great prices!
How versatile! We love how you created several different looks for the same piece!!
mabel and zora
Thanks so much, Mabel & Zora!
Great find! I love the color and the print and it's so versatile. I love both looks.
As for me, I love my thrifting more than anything, but I can find some things at Nordies too!
I bet we'd have fun thrifting together, Gracey!
Ok, that's just brilliant .. really! I would never have thought to wear a sleeveless dress as a vest .. 🙂
Haha … you're so sweet! Thanks so much, dear!
Love it!!! So cute!! And what a steal too!! Awesome job!
Thanks for the inspiration, dear!
I like the idea of keeping it closed at the top. So unusual.
Well, you've been over to visit a couple of times, you know I adore a good thrift find. I definitely shop in higher priced stores as well, alas usually during the sales period.

Yeah, I'm a mix and match girl too … high end, low end, and everywhere in between!
You are so creative! I would have never thought to style the dress over jeans the way you did. Maybe I need to rethink my closet! I can't believe it was only $3. Great find.

Aww, thanks so much, Amy Ann!
Well, $3 is most certainly a steal! It's adorable and will be great for fall!
Cheaper than my Starbucks this morning! 😉
You have a thrift store that's on your route home from work, dearest Dawn?? That must be deadly (or heavenly…depending on your perspective, ha ha!!) I can't believe that you found this maroon floral wonder for only three bucks!! It looks lovely on you as a dress – of course! – but the way you styled it as a vest is a real "Wow!!" And yes, yes, yes to buttoning just the top like you did!! XOXO
Glad you like it buttoned up, Hon! It looks cute just open too, but I thought buttoned up gave it an interesting look! Haha … the store is not quite RIGHT on the way home, but …. close enough for an impromptu shopping spree now and then! 😉
Wow, my friend, I truly love your floral dress. You totally nailed it. You are such an amazing shopper. That was such a great deal on that beautiful dress. I love both them both ways though. Keep more styles coming dear.
You're the sweetest, dear friend!
Wow! I love how you changed this floral dress into a kimono-like look! I would have never thought to do that. Super cute! I love the rich colors of the floral dress too!
I kinda thought "kimono" too! Thanks, Dear!
Such a cute dress, and great bargain! 🙂 You're sure to get lots of wear from it in the cooler weather too!
I don't have much luck in thrift stores – but ever now and then will score a great find 🙂 Sales sections are where I buy most things 🙂
Away From The Blue
Sale sections are great too! I love when J. Crew has 50% sales! Plus I get a teacher discount on top of that! 😉
Your second outfit is so creative! I would NEVER have thought to do that. Bravo!
Thanks so much, Whitney!
Brilliant idea of transforming this dress into a vest, LOVE IT! I enjoy seeing it worn as a dress and you totally rocked it, but the outfit you put together as a vest is just splendid.
Aww, thanks so much, Trina! Means a lot coming from you!
Now these two version are so great and so cleaver of you. They both look FAB on you! Thanks for wanting to see me today. That warmed my heart.
Fashion item Friday would not be the same without you, you know that right? Have a wonderful weekend and savor the moments ~ awh ~~
Yes, let's enjoy every precious moment for this holiday weekend! I love being a part of FIF!
It looks amazing as a vest!! Such a fab idea! Thank you for joining Renae & I over at Fashion Item Friday! Ax
Isn't Renae fabulous? Glad you were today's co-host! HAve a great weekend!
Dawn! I My way of thrifting is shopping Poshmark, as I cant stand long, and it seems you have to go through things Boy, I wish I could . This is an example of a fab find! Love the dress, the shape and the color. Burgundy is a hot color for fall too!! As always you look so lovely!

please stop by, jess
I wish we had Poshmark! I've always loved burgundy and I'm so happy to see it's hot this fall!
What a bargain and how clever to style it as a shirt worn with jeans!
I am a huge fan of shirt-dresses Dawn. Yours is so fun and sassy. Love that you quickly turned it into an open cardigan, layered cover-up – whatever you want to call it. You look mighty sexy on the first outfit though. Great job. As you know I am all about remixing my closet, any day and every day. =)
Enjoy the holiday weekend!! Ada. =)
Thanks so much, Ada! I love the way you remix your closet, Dear! OXOX
Quite the bargain! Great find.
I love this!! Especially as a vest….genius!
Thanks, dear Debbie!
WOW! The dress is so cute and burgundy is big this Fall! Congrats!
PS. Have you entered my TrendSurvivor X Storm in a D cup $200 Gift Card GiveAway yet?
Thanks Nina! I'll have to check out that giveaway, Hon!
What a great idea! I love both ways you've styled it. And what an amazing deal!
That's such a lovely colour and pattern.
Thanks, Dear. I'm a big fan of burgundy!
Wowwww you look awesome babe
Love your style

Thanks, dear Maggie!
Love it! I recently purchased a consigned RL dress that's similar in composition. You've inspired me to try the jeans and tank pairing with mine. 🙂 T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
Ooo, can't wait to see your look!
I agree, I like how you wear it buttoned up at the top and with skinny jean! very nice! 🙂
Thanks, Bi! OXOX
Such a steal! I love that dress. I loved it with the sandals, but I really like it as a vest, too. You are adorable. I like it buttoned at the top. Great idea. I want to rummage through my closet and try wearing a dress like that.
No, you are adorable! Thanks so much, sweet Jenni!
So cute! I love that you wore it open too! So pretty!
It's amazing how you were able to create two totally different looks with this one dress! Love them both. Perfect transition to fall piece. Hope you're having a good weekend. ~Cynthia
Thanks, Cynthia! Hope you had a great holiday weekend with the family!
Fantastic and versatile dress! I love the look over th jeans and wished I were longer and slimmer so that I could rock it like you! 🙂
Aww, you're a doll, Lisa!
