A Little Leftover

A Little Leftover

Works Cited
dress: secondhand (w/ credit)
tee: american apparel
bag: thrifted dooney and burke
sneakers: courtesy of keds

This dress is a recent acquisition--I brought some things that didn't fit to Plato's closet and traded it for a few things that did. It felt great to get rid of some dead weight in my closet and get to pick up a few dresses in exchange.

A Little Leftover

I thrifted this bag at the Chicken Barn thrift store in northern Maine--by far, the coolest antique store I've ever been to.

A Little Leftover

This is actually a leftover outfit shot from a few weeks ago that didn't make the cut, but this morning is busy for me, so I'm pulling it out of the recent archives. I love this dress is person, but it doesn't photograph quite so well--this seems to be a problem I often have with empire waist dresses.

I LOVE the Chicken Barn! They have pretty agreeable prices, too. We don't get down there nearly enough.

This look is so cute. I think I need some red Keds!

Love this outfit! That bag is so great. I love finding vintage bags, my everyday bag is a thrifted Coach leather bag.

Bag is awesome---what a great find! Loving the dress, too. I definitely want more casual day dresses for summer (but need to clean out the closet more first!).

How much do you love Keds? I swear if they would let me I would wear Keds to work and fancy occasios... its much easier to walk around Manhattan in Keds than in heels haha

Nice and casual! Antique stores are the best! We need to somehow feed our fashion appetite with a thrifty diet lol.
