Thrift Store Score: Michael Kors Tie Dye Maxi Dress

I'm soaking up the rays in this vibrant, tie dye maxi dress!
Would you believe that it is a original InMyJoi #ThriftStoreScore ?!


I'll openly admit, I'm not a huge fan of long dresses or skirts on my body. Why? Well, for one thing, I am short, and for two, I'm on the thick side ;) In my opinion, they can easily camouflage my frame, and cause me to look not only shorter but also dumpy =( 
Nonetheless, despite my apprehension and personal preference, several long dresses/skirts have inched their way into my wardrobe! (See here, here, and here)
This maxi dress caused me to look past my apprehensions because of the fresh colors and ruffle detail.
I wore it last week while on a getaway with my husband.
Side note: When I first bought this dress (a few years back), my husband actually brought it to my attention that it is supposed to be worn off the shoulders-LOL!

It was a great fit for vacation. It's lightweight, and 100% cotton. 
As the temperatures soared past 110 degrees Fahrenheit, I was cool, calm, and collected =)

Sunnies: Fashion District
Maxi dress: Michael Kors, thrifted ($10.00)
Tote: Coach (also worn here and here)
Sandals: Tildon (also worn here)

Stay tuned: The 30 Plus Style Collaboration returns tomorrow!!!
