retro rocker

Dress & necklace: Thrifted. Shoes: Trash and Vaudeville. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff. Nail polish: Pixel Pretty by Sally Hansen
I got this dress from a church thrift shop. I posted a fitting room pic on my twitter last Friday when I was trying it on. I layered it over a slip I had. The necklace was found minutes later at another thrift shop. I like the rock chick feel it gives the lace.
These are the metallic silver brogues I found at Trash and Vaudeville and mentioned under the Trash post. I love the retro style of them. A bit more unexpected.
The other thrift dress I got (all sequin) is back from being altered to a mini. I’ll post pics when I get to wear it over the next few days hopefully.
