How I styled My Thrifted Green Mini Dress

Hello! I’ve been lazy about blogging lately. It’s much easier to post a quick picture to Instagram and keep it moving. I don’t think that people realize just how much work goes into writing an actual blog post.

What I do find easy is a day of thrifting. I always find something when I go to my local thrift stores. I may only find a belt or a pretty blouse at times, I’m always excited about saving money and I enjoy finding new things because it brings out my creative side. Sometimes I find an amazing print or pattern and other times I find a plain piece that I can style my way.

This green dress is a perfect example, it was less than $6 and it came with a matching belt. I decided to style it with my thrifted leather belt instead. I’ve had the shoes forever, the brown color matched the belt perfectly even though, I bought them years a part. I threw in the sunflower..because I’m over the top..LOL!!! No seriously, I had an extra sunflower from one of my DIY flower crowns laying around my room.

I love color, I think it’s the island girl in me. I don’t know if color blocking is still an in thing but yellow and green is one of my favorite color combinations. When I bought the dress, I wanted a casual around town look. Something I could throw on with a pair of sandals and run errands or go on a lunch date. It’s nothing fancy but that’s just it, I find the best everyday wear at the thrift store.

Thrifted Mini Red Dress & Lace Up Heels

Hey guys! It’s hump day…I love saying that…Lol. I wanted to share my thrifted $5 dress from Goodwill. Ladies don’t sleep on thrift stores. I know we all want the latest clothing and accessories out there but if you have to break the bank to buy it, then it just isn’t worth it…at least it isn’t to me.

I learned thrifting from my mother, I come from a immigrant family and when she arrived in the US, she had little to nothing to support her six children. She started doing house keeping for wealthy families, then on to nursing school and she thrifts more than ever these days. My mother always told us that some of the best quality items were in thrift stores. She would say they don’t make good furniture and linens like they use to and I couldn’t agree more.

I thrift because it’s fun! I usually go with the intentions of buying one or two items and walk out with several bags. I can’t go with anyone but my mother, it takes us forever to comb through the racks and I have to focus. When my son comes along he complains the entire time.

What I enjoy the most is finding something that I can dress up or down and make it look like it never came out a thrift store, that’s the key to thrifting. I buy household items all the time and paint, sand, and redecorate them with my own personal touch.

I thought the dress was sexy. I love red and skater dresses fit my pear shaped figure. It shows lots of legs and looks really good with these strappy shoes. What do you think? Do you thrift?

I thought this look would be great for date night. It’s not too much and you can throw on a belt and a few different types of accessories and make it your own. Enjoy the pictures and thanks as always for stopping by!
