As you’re aware I have a bit of a 90s fetish. So as of late I’d found myself ogling the cute, comfy looking shirtdresses sported by Bridget Fonda, Mary Stuart Masterson and the like while watching 90s flicks. So yes, I was on the look out for a shirtdress to add to my wardrobe. What I happened to come across was actually one that I believe is from the 80s that was trying to evoke the 50s. I loved it. And yes, it totally came from the local magical thrift shop where I score stuff like this super cheap.
As I mentioned in my Miracle-Gro post I’ve been wanting to do an OOTD in front of our garden. However I’ve been feeling run down and not even trying to dress in anything but tees and cargos lately. However at the end of April during a day that felt like fall I tried to improve my down in the dumps spirit/downtrodden body by wearing this and whatever other fun things that struck my fancy.
I paired my dress with some green tights I got at Target over the winter, adorable brown and green Rocket Dog heels, a faux leather jacket I got at Dots a while back, my pink pearls (cuz why not) and topped it with a cloche hat that I snagged at Target on sale. Yes, it was from that Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection that I was coveting last fall. I managed to score this one and the blue hat in my snow alien photo set (also from his collection) super cheap since people in this town don’t love hats like I do (clearance baby!).
I sort of felt like I was walking around from a different time period in this outfit but it definitely cheered me up, thus doing its job.
