Thrift Store Score: Beating the Heat in a Vintage Frock

Hey there fellow Style Lovers!
Can you believe that the weekend has arrived already?! I’m so thankful for it, and to show my gratitude I plan to take full advantage of every single moment of it =)
Today’s post is a short and sweet one, featuring a vintage frock that I wore earlier this week when temperatures were ridiculously H O T! How hot? I’m talking “SMOKING HOT”. You know, that kind of heat that makes you sweat profusely as soon as you step outside of central air - that kind of heat that makes your heart beat faster just from standing still in it for a few minutes - yes - that kind of heat that has the propensity to make you feel infinitely miserable! Such was the sad reality here in SoCal! Admittedly I’m not from these parts, but natives of this land tell me that this particular heat wave was most unusual. LOL! While the rest of the country was basking in Fall-like weather, I was sweltering in an outdoor furnace. Generally I am a fan of heat/warmth, especially when given the choice to be either hot or cold. However, as I creep toward age 40, I notice that my enjoyment of extremely hot weather is slowly beginning to depreciate. Oops, I just went on a rant despite initially saying that today’s post would be a short one! Ok, here we go:
This is a #ThriftStoreScore because of it's cost: less than $1.00 USD!!! Plus I like the style of it: color blocked and a-line, simply FAB! Snagged it while I was in the Midwest a few weeks back =) Come to think of it, I actually had a full-on thrift store haul! Some of the pieces probably won’t be worn until next Summer, nonetheless, they’re at my disposal when I need them ;)
The next picture aptly sums up how I felt about the heat wave.
Fortunately as of yesterday temps are on a downward trend, we're actually experiencing the mid 60s late in the evening/night! 
I wish you a wonderful weekend Beauties!

    1. Thank you Robin! I'm always amazed at how well preserved vintage colors can be! I think the silver pops the grey, and gives it flavor ;)
