Thrift Away

I quite liked this stretch denim dress that I found in  a thrift store but it just wasn't generous enough in the hip area for my generous pear shape. I decided to take a page from Sally at http://www.alreadypretty.com/ and try layering a dress over a dress (or in this case a knit skirt). I'm kinda liking it.

Dress, skirt and boots, all thrifted. Tights from We love colors. Accessories, accumulated over the years.

And yes, I am still painting.....

This combination of dress over skirt worked really well! And I like how you've accentuated your slender waist (lucky you!) with the belt.

Yes! Great idea, and I like the bright tights for accent/fun. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday. Love your new painting too.

What a great way to get around the too tight issue, you look fantastic in this outfit! I love the colour on your tights and necklace, and the belt just give you a perfect waist! Well done!

Fabulous dress! I love layering skirts and dresses under other dresses. The turquoise is awesome with this outfit.

I saw your comment that you'd been here in town. Drop me an email next time you're in Victoria and we'll have some tea and maybe hit a thrift store!

That is a great tip - wearing a dress over a skirt - and it looks great on you. I love the flexibility of today's styles so we can really be creative. And I just bought tights of a similar color! Getting on the teal bandwagon!

Very nice layering. I like the contrast of the denim details with your simple skirt.

You look fab in this outfit. Great styling. I adore how you pose. It always makes me think of Wonder Woman--powerful and strong. The necklace is the perfect touch.
