housewife redux


This dress is a treasure. 

It looks marginally okay on the hanger, kind of shapeless, which it also is when I wear it by itself, but a simple, tiny belt is all it needs to become amazing.  I'm just happy I found it and had faith enough to try it on!

It was $3.50 at the thrift store. Didn't I say it was a treasure?


It is so wonderfully full and twirly, not to mention the fact that it makes me feel like a 1950's housewife.






Happy Friday! Links to love coming later today!

peace&love,
Jill

  7. That's one of the big things I've learned from blogging ... belts can work magic on an outfit. :) Lovely dress - I like the wide white stripe and the white piping up top. Definitely a treasure for $3.50!

  10. What an amazing steal. I agree that small belt can take an otherwise ordinary dress over the top. Love the colors too!
