Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

DVF Dreams

thrifting nyc

Hey hey! Have been a bit behind on updating the blog lately, so get ready for an onslaught of overdue posts this week. If you follow on Instagram, you've probably already seen plentyyyy of this silk new-with-tags DVF dress I nabbed at the Buffalo Exchange Dollar Sale for, yes, a dollar. But I can't resist sharing just a few more pics, since the dress photographs in an even more vibrant shade of green than it looks in person. I think I'm in love.

I wore the dress to a friend's recent wedding, and it fit perfectly, accentuating my shape while still allowing me enough room to breathe, dance and, most importantly, eat and drink to my heart's content. I've done the whole bandage-dress-with-spanx thing to a wedding before, and never again. I've learned the hard way that comfort + style = WAY more wedding fun. I paired the dress with a pair of Nine West kitten heels ($27) and a gold sequined clutch ($13), both scores from a recent TJMaxx haul. Head to toe, the whole look came out to $41.
