"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): I don't thrift the trends, the trends copy my thrift finds

I don't thrift the trends, the trends copy my thrift finds

I've had this dress all winter, but it just seemed like more of a spring kinda dress. Then I saw this new Dear Creatures dress all over the internet, and I figured it was time to bust this one out. I was considering cutting the sleeves off it, but decided it's going up for sale in my etsy later this week! Still need to earn some dough after that trip to Korea!
Dress - thrifted
Shoes - thrifted vintage Candies

P.S. I am totally wearing shorts that are the same length as the dress - it seemed too short to be working around children in!

Not bad, eh? And I assure you, my dress cost waaaaaaaaaaay less than that $130 number... thrift the trends kids, especially since most of the trends this year are vintage inspired anyway!

EDIT: Ok, so I wound up wearing it tucked in most of the day... it still just felt like my dress was too short for work, so I turned it into a cute top!

Holy crap I want that dress. SOOOO rad. So rad! I think it might be even better than the fancy expensive one.

WOW it is amazing how trends do follow the past! I totally wear shorts under short dresses as well...mainly because I have a hard time sitting and acting like a "lady" (especially when there are trees to climb)

I love the title of your post... I think the same way. I hate it when F21 copies my hard earned thrfiting treasures...
That dress is a beauty! Would it be long enough for a tall kid like me?

rather unrelated...
but it just occurred to me that the pictures you always pose in front of (in the corner of your stairs) look cool... could you give us a closer look?

I love it both ways! So crisp and ladylike. You are a fashion forecaster.
