A fresh curl and color on my locs does something magical to me. Self care is so important. I feel shiny new yet old soul. The curl pattern reminds me of a 40s hairdo. That's why I opted to wear my vintage thrift store dress. The one that was only $1.50 at the dingiest Salvation Army I had ever been in.
You know how a thrift angel sings when you've found treasure? An entire choir sang to me when I laid eyes on this one! Despite being 100% poly, it's very silky and it just oozes femininity. I feel like a proper lady when I'm shoveling goat cheese in my mouth with a butter knife.
Some short legged people avoid tea length dresses fearing the legs will get shorter. I am not of that school of thought. When the dress is so right, I don't let "the rules" stop me from enjoying the pretty.
Since I was in a vintage state of mind, I dove in with vintage earrings, belt, and gold metallic clutch thus breaking one of my own thrift style fashion rules. Though shalt not look like you're wearing a costume.
I'm wearing pieces from different decades so I feel like I've broken up the vintage a bit. Wearing current style pumps helps me out too.
