8/30: Double Collar

Remember how I told you I bought a few things from the thrift store before the 30x30 began? This dress is another piece from that little collection. I saw the print on it and instantly fell in love.

8/30: Double Collar
Dress: Leslie Fay (vintage), thrifted, $1.70
Top: J. Crew, thrifted, $1.75
Boots: St. John's Bay, thrifted, $4.60
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

I finally know the total amount that this outfit cost. I typically never know my total prices of my outfits because I usually have a few pieces of clothing that are super old sprinkled in with my newer things. But this one... this one is all thrifted and a grand total of $8.05. Suffice it to say, I'm rather delighted with that business.


"Popping" my collar always makes me feel like a mix between Fonzie and those dudes that wore polos with the collars up a few years ago. I can never get over this. I will forever have dudes with pink polos and popped collars forever ingrained in my mind. This does not stop me from doing it though. :)

I know this photo is not very clear but I can't resist a good sun on my dress photo. Yes, that is real sun shining on my dress. It may have been like -8 degrees here today in Michigan but we did have sun!
