Thrifted Paper Doll

6 Comments

So today is both Everybody Everywear Thrift Edition & the Paper Doll Project. I was teamed up with the lovely Bekah from Matters of Merrymaking. I gave her a dress to style that I thrifted, but hadn’t worn yet. I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it despite the fact that I love it – the print is great. I am so happy with how she styled it. I wouldn’t have thought to wear it this way at all, but I love it. It’s so comfortable. Why do I always think belts are going to be uncomfortable?

With the addition of the belt & the heals, the skirt got a bit short so I am wearing shorts to protect the eyes of the innocent. I love this outfit! Thanks Bekah!

Dress: Thrifted
Shirt: Ross
Necklace: Kohls
Ring: Anika Burke
Shoes: Blowfish Gimmik

To see how I styled Bekah, head on over to Matters of Merrymaking. To see the other Everybody Everywear participants, go here.

  5. thats a fantastic dress. the pattern is really cute. I can see why you didn’t want to give up on it. It looks great! Your shoes are to die for!
    I really need to get into this whole refashioning thrifted clothes. I pass too many things up that could be great simply because I’m not skilled with a needle and thread.

    Looking forward to reading more of your blog. 🙂
