Thrift Style Thursday: Wedding Bell Blues

Happy Thrift Style Thursday, everyone, even though I just barely made it! I have a wedding to attend this coming weekend, so I thought I'd give you a sneak peak of the thrifted duds I plan to don for the occasion.

I picked up this cheery floral dress a couple months ago with the intention of refashioning it. I didn't even try it on at the time. But as the day approaches and my nothing-to-wear-ness grows more urgent, I decided to give this baby a whirl. Why not, right?

As luck would have it, the dress fit marvelously! And for an outdoor wedding... in June... in Texas... yeah, I needed something in light-weight cotton. This dress will do quite nicely. Since heels could pose a problem at an outdoor wedding, I'm going with my turquoise leather Nine West flats to be safe.

For an extra pop of color, I added my purple leather Fossil bag and some jewelry in shades of purple and blue as well, which I gather from the invitation will be the color theme for the whole affair.

So I've got my "old" dress (well, old to the previous owner), which also happens to be "new" (new-to-me!), and I've got my blue! Nothing borrowed, but then, I'm not the bride, so who cares!

  1. Beautiful dress Carissa. Perfect for a summer outdoor wedding. You could wear a chunkier necklace and some matching bangles / bracelet. Enjoy!
