One of my favorite pastimes is thrifting. I love sifting through old dishes, knick knacks, furniture and most of all clothing. Yes, old clothing is my weakness. I love imagining who wore it before me and what they may have done in it.
When I came across this handsewn dress at one of my favorite Atlanta shops, I knew I had to have it. The drop waist and exaggerated collar was too much for me to resist. However, it was a bit long, but secret number 1 to thrifting is never pass up something just because it doesn’t fit perfectly. As soon as I got it home, I had it shortened. Unfortunately, it was shortened a bit too short and a little secret about me is that I am super uncomfortable in short short dresses. I’m super clumsy and the style isn’t exactly flattering on my shapely, white legs. I have always steered clear of these short numbers until I recently discovered the beauty of tights. Dark and bright tights are amazing; they are instantly more slimming and prevent showing your booty in case of an untimely accident.
Since my cute little dress had become even smaller, it was in need some spunky tights. I love these yellow tights with the dress, but it is a bit warm for them during the steamy summer days for my taste. I will have to reserve them for date nights in chilly restaurants or hold out for the upcoming fall chill. How do you feel about tights in the summer?
Hope you are having a great Wednesday, and don’t forget that you still have till midnight tomorrow to register for the Stella & Dot giveaway!
