Thrift Store Score: Minty Fresh

Happy FRI-YAY beauties!!!! Today's #ThriftStoreScore features a gorgeous mint, eyelet, vintage dress! Can you imagine that it was specially marked for $5?! I smiled in total disbelief!

The design and color are simply spectacular, I WILL wear this dress to death!!!
When it came to deciding what to wear it with, I had a number of options in mind from my wardrobe. I look forward to experimenting with all of the possibilities that I originally came up with in the future, or shall I say, in the near future ;) 
For this time around however, I decided to go for Team Monochrome.
You can't tell now, but the original size of the dress was a bit too large on me. I took it to a friend to have it altered. She always does an amazing job ;)
I wore the entire look as styled here to a seminar, and I got so many compliments! 


The deets:
Sunnies-Betsey Johnson
Dress, earrings, and ring-Vintage,thrifted
Handbag- Kate Spade (worn here)
Sandals- Via Spiga (worn here)
Thank you for stopping by! Please do tell,  how would you style this dress? Team Monochrome or Team Contrast?!

Have a wonderful weekend! Joi

  1. You look Smashing in this mint outfit and I love the HAIR! There is nothing better than a good seamstress/tailor when you can get buys like that. Looking forward to more. . . .
