On one of my weekly thrift store trips earlier this month, I scored this sleeveless military dress for just $8 at Goodwill in La Quinta. You might have seen my recent post about how much I love the olive color for fall. This dress is no exception, and the styling options are endless! Since it’s still pretty hot out, I haven’t quite pulled out my leggings to wear underneath just yet… but you can bet I will in a few months!
Has anyone heard of the label, “A New Day”? Google says it’s a brand from Target, sort of like Xhilaration. Based on the quality of the fabric, I would have guessed that this dress came from Nordstrom or Macy’s. It’s SUPER soft. Regardless of brand, I love it!
There are no buttons on this dress – just one long zipper, which makes putting it on super easy. Cinch ties are my best friend, because God knows I always need a bit of help around the waist. Bonus brownie points for the back of this dress – I’m able to tie it and make it more fitted! In a way, this number is almost like a shirt-dress on me because it’s so short. It looks great this way, but I have to wear tight booty shorts underneath it and make sure I don’t bend down (lol). Otherwise, if the wind picks up, I’m in trouble! It was actually super windy out when we shot this in Palm Springs. Despite all the outtakes, we managed to get a few good shots in. It helped that the lighting was just magical that evening.
My go-to style is pretty feminine, but I also love an occasional outfit that’s perfect for everyday wear with a touch of tomboy vibes. This dress is just that for me. It’s so chic with a pair of combat boots, a newsboy cap, and my Chanel boy bag! My thrifting luck has been on a good streak lately – I have so much more to share with you guys. Slowly, I’ll get around to taking pictures in everything.
What do you think of this femme, yet boyish look?
