A dress off the bucket list

There are just some things a woman who thrifts wants to find (I speak for myself clearly). I always dreamt that I would find a vintage Pucci dress, in all its 60′s swirly goodness. But I’ve never, ever, had the luck of finding anything. Like, even remotely close. I could find a new Herve Leger dress and Yves Saint Laurent heels, but yet I couldn’t find this one thing!

So when my sister called me, and asked if I wanted a Pucci dress, I was sure that it was either a) really expensive or b) she was joking. But here she was, handing me my one impossible find (thank you Diana!). It really is the perfect summer dress. Now I need a real vacation to use it! So that’s one more tick off the fashion bucket list!

Do you have that one fashion find that you hope to get one day?

Weekend hair

I’ve never been one to be very adventurous with my hair – I’ve had it almost every length, colored it every shade of auburn and brown, and a blonde just once. But never something unnatural! I admit I’m scared. Since I recently finally caved in and went to a professional to fix my hair, it has left the ends of my hair much lighter – thus allowing for what I’m now calling weekend hair. I went to Walgreens and found some hair chalk. I got pink, but now I wish I’d gotten the blue! So now I can have fun with it on the weekends, and wash it out when it’s time to go back to work.

Dress: Betsey Johnson, I’ve had it for years. Shoes: Matt Bernson (so comfy!)

The little white dress: from casual to dressy

Who would have ever guessed that just a change of shoes could elevate an outfit! I’ve had this little white dress for a very, very long time! It was one of those things I cherished from when I worked at Fornarina, back in the early days of my blog. I have gotten rid of most of the clothing I did own from them, because they were way too mid-2000′s Euro looking – but I couldn’t get rid of this dress!

I couldn’t decide which shoes to wear it with. Which look do you like better – casual or dressy?

Dress: Fornarina. Sneakers: Superga. Flats: Sam Edelman (on super sale at Amazon!). Watch: Vintage Bill Blass.

My DvF style

My green Diane von Furstenberg dress from the previous post has been one of my most favorite finds! It really is a versatile dress. It’s definitely not something to wear to work, but a dress to make a statement! You can’t see it because of the sweater, but it has a low back that can be oh, so sexy. And that’s what I love about Diane von Furstenberg dresses and style! I’ve recently fallen in love with this beautiful one, hopefully one day saving enough to buy it! In the meantime, I’m happy with the DvF dresses I do have!

Here is a small roundup,

I’ve had some good luck, and I can’t wait to find more to add to my wardrobe!

Just a little fancy

When I began this blog and lived in Vegas, getting dressed for nightlife was a bigger part of my life (hence why I have an #OotN category as wells as a #OotD one). But living in San Francisco, those chances to dress up at night became fewer and fewer – and it’s not that people don’t like to dress nice here, but that you can get away with casual dressing practically every single day and for almost occasions! That when I do get to dress up, it’s really nice, I take full advantage of it!

And while our daytimes can be sort of warm, I had to take a sweater with me before it got dark because it always gets cold at night again. No matter the daytime weather (sorry to all of you melting away)

Sweater: Marc Jacobs, thrifted. Dress: Diane von Furstenberg, thrifted & Made in the USA! (the style is called Bridget, here are a few in different colors for sale). Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in Raspberry Pie. Shoes: Dries Van Noten.

PS. I love bringing back outfits like this, that are showcasing style on a dime. I think this whole outfit cost less than $50!
