everything i do, i do it for you

okay my lovelies - 
i came home in the middle of the day today *just* so i could make a post for you all :) okay - not entirely true - but close!
i bought this cool a-lined patterned dress for 2 bucks at the thrift and decided i would play around with a few different ideas of how to style it. it's pretty long and i think it makes me look stumpy when not belted so i may hem it quite a bit - opinions?! these looks aren't exactly edited but more of a sharing of "the process" - enjoy!

my new owl necklace (.75 cents at thrift) is getting me MAD complements!

i thrifted this FAUX fur vest the other day and can't wait for it to actually get cold out!

running out of time to say where stuff is from but most of it's thrifted - comment with questions if you need specifics!

oh, and i'll try to get another post in this weekend of what i wear friday night to a "stock the bar" party for my bestie who's about to be A BRIDE!

Love it - ALL of it! Especially the pic in the vest - Oh, so reminiscent of "Twiggy" - whom I fantasized being as a 'teen. (ooh my age is showing!) Coveting the Aigners, and loving the fishnets - Love it all!

Great with the fur vest. I am totally wanting to go more boho with my style, and then what do I buy next? a bow clutch and lace skirt, ugh - too girly for my own good. I feel like if I can find a fur vest, I can be well on my way to a change. :-) Thanks.

This is awesome, I love it all too! You wouldn't expect a dress with such a print (which is really cool by the way, those colors are Fall perfect) to be that versatile. This just shows what mad styling skilz you have :D

I was going to say you look like a rockstar in that vest but I think chamber chick is right, very Twiggy and I love that you're wearing the fish!

My absolute favorite though is the last one with the blue tights picking up the bits of blue in the print, those awesome boots, and of course the hat :) I don't think you look stumpy at all without the belt.

Hope everything is going well with the housesitting!

Hi! Great find! I do think it would look good a bit shorter, but I love the way you styled it!
