Style Notes: A Warm Day in December

2 Comments

On my recent trip and solo thrift at a Goodwill in Hinesville, Ga. I found a treasure trove of dresses including this little vintage gem of a shirt dress that caught my eye. It is perfect for me in so many ways. From the puffy shoulders and sleeves to the primness of the just below the knee hemline., how many ways can you say love?!

The only thing that was bringing me down about the dress was it is unlined and a bit too thin for the cold we were enduring. I feared that I would have to stare longingly at it in my closet until spring, but a rare December day when temperatures easily reached mid-60s was my now or later moment. I was so psyched to wear it, but still decided to pair it with a turtleneck, and dark tights because it is still winter!

Ricks paired the dress with a black turtleneck and tights because even though the weather was giving her early fall, the calendar says it is almost winter! Gray faux suede and blue platform pumps by Nine West were bought new from the Salvation Army for $14.99.

Ricks paired the dress with her signature glasses, gold tone accessories from Aldo, Forever 21 and Marshall’s.
