Out of sheer boredom, I painted my nails bright yellow this weekend. Once I was done, I immediately wanted to show them off. And I thought what better way than with this cheery yellow-accented frock. At first I paired my ensemble with those yellow shoes I wear all the time, but the look was too matchy-matchy (plus, I didn’t think those delicate heels could take a full afternoon of pavement pounding).
Ladies & Gentlemen…
IT finally happened!
What is IT, exactly…?
Well, at work IT usually means Information Technology, but that’s beside the point. No, the IT I’m referring to is far more exciting. And that IT is the fulfillment of my 2-year quest to score a DVF dress while thrifting!
When I used to envisioned the big day in my head, the plunder was typically the iconic wrap-style in a vintage 70s print. However, I have to say that I’m as pleased as punch with this maxi number. I tried to capture as much detail as possible, but pictures do not do this dress justice. It’s made of 100% silk and has quite a bit of weight to it which makes the fabric drape and flow in such a lovely fashion as I walk. And the best part…
IT only cost me thirty bucks!
