Hi.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm happy you're here.

Thrifty Thursday: Vintage Purple Dress + Vest

Thrifty Thursday: Vintage Purple Dress + Vest

This dress can only have one name, and that name is “Vest AF.” Have you ever seen a badder ass dress/vest? Can we call this a drest? Why isn’t this still a thing? Was it ever a thing? I have so many questions, but mainly this one:

Me: Does this outfit look dumb?

Noah: What is that? A vest? Take that off. The dress is cute underneath.

Me: (patronizingly) Noah. One does not find a matching vintage ensemble and then only rock half of it.

Noah: OK. (giving zero effs)

I spent many years trying to be cool, but as an adult I’ve slowly let go of that and accepted that my fashion style can best be described as: belongs on an American Girl. Specifically, Kirsten. Or Felicity. You know- the solid 1700-1800’s gals. Not Samantha- her dresses were always a bit showy.

My style looks like an American Girl doll

But Really…

Do you think they make this in adult sizes? Gloves too. Looking to rock this entire ensemble. Pls advise.

I digress.

The Outfit

Brand: Sadly, the tag is cut out so we will never know.

Vintage: Stab in the dark here, but the vest makes me want to say 1970’s. Maybe early 80’s.

Cost: $7

Accessories:

  • Lion belt: $4 at Goodwill. Can you even? Because I cannot even.

  • Shoes: Floral Guess heels from Goodwill (selling for $35 on eBay)

  • Earrings: Rhinestone earrings from Ann Taylor

Berly: Do something to show off the belt.  Me: I gotchu.  Berly: Not that.

Berly: Do something to show off the belt.

Me: I gotchu.

Berly: Not that.

Toodles! tlo
