Dress: Salvation Army thrift shop. Try Shopbop, Kate Moss (I’d love to rip the lining out of it!) or Piperlime.  Bag: Battersea Flea market in London.  Try Foley & Corinna (love this) or Elizabeth & James (Extra 20% off w/ code: GIVEIN).  Shoes: Addidas Stan Smith.  Rings on right hand: Large gold (my late grandmother). Thin rings: Catbird.  Try Jules Smith. Star necklace: (Random). Try Jennifer Zeuner (I love all her jewelry). 
This is a fave dress from a Salvation Army shop.  I wore it back to front since I like the idea of a lace chest with a high neck and the deep v-neck behind instead allows enough skin without feeling completely covered.  It didn’t come with a lining which was perfect – allowing sheerness to show through wherever I want.

You can see me wearing it the right way (and with more hair on my head) in this old post.

The bag is a find at Battersea flea market in London.  I couldn’t believe it when I saw it hanging on a clothes rail. Pony hair with mohawk?  I mean come on.  I knew I was getting it even before I asked the price.

      Thx I like the v shape enough to wear backwards or the correct way in front. Def something to try if you have a similar cut dress or top!
