Thrift Store Score: About Blue

Hi there Style Lovers! I feel like I've been MIA; coming back from vacation can make it difficult to get back on schedule. Nonetheless as I make efforts to return to what is my normalcy, here's a new #ThriftStoreScore !
I've divulged exactly how I feel about the color blue. It is my favorite color.
The ease and flow of this vintage number was right up my alley. You do know that I bat for Team Vintage 90% of the time right?! LOL! 
I like the detail on the caps of the sleeves and the subtle print throughout.
This is a #ThriftStoreScore at $1.60! Being stylish can truly be affordable and practical.
Now this dress leans toward the traditional side of the fence, so for personality and flair I added a statement necklace and silver oxfords.
Also, fun sunnies never hurt, right? Here's my philosophy: When in doubt = add shades! (I posted a confession on my Instagram account about my 'Shade' collection...)
Notice I added a blue clutch, mainly because I tend to like for my clothes and accessories to match. Oh, and blinged bangles! Ah yes, the little details.
Unfortunately it's time to say 'Until next time' beauties! If you'd like to see more #ThriftStoreScores click here or you may click the tab near the header of this page.

Thanks for stopping by & and I look forward to reading your comments below!

  7. Incredible score on this dress! And I can see why blue is your favorite color. It is so striking and vibrant on you. I think my favorite touch is those pointy-toe shoes! They create this interesting little contrast from the super feminine dress and necklace. They're super hip! Awesome outfit!
