Sexy Summertime Floral Dress - Pinup Style
Nineties floral dress - Out of The Closet, Cynthia Rowley bag - thrifted, black platform heels (similar here) - Seychelle's, Betsey Johnson leopard print earrings - Betsey Johnson, black cateye sunglasses - Express, bracelet - yard sale find and DIY
So without realizing it, most of this outfit is thrifted!
Thrift stores are great places to find true vintage items but also vintage replicas / retro inspired pieces. One of my favorite thrift store chains that I frequent here in LA and San Francisco is Out of The Closet. I scored this dress for about $5, it's no a no-namer, probably from the '90s but it fits like a glove! It's plunging neckline gives it a little bit of sexiness sexy that's alowed me to wear it in the winter for evening looks with stockings. And it's also great because during the summer I dress it down with sandals or flats. (I wore it to Hello Kitty Con last year too! see here.)
My Cynthia Rowley bag was a find at some little thrift store in Phoenix. Brand new! Someone's trash is my treasure. :)
And if you're wondering about my bracelet, I bought it at a yard sale and then did a little DIY by decoupaging Loteria cards on both sides.
Though this outfit has more modern pieces (even nineties is still modern to me!), I still like to think that I gave it my own pinup twist. :)
I love love love thrift store shopping. Sure, sometimes (often) I may wonder about germs - but that's why you can clean, wash, and disinfect your thrifted and vintage items! And ta-da! MAGIC.
