field of dreams

Vintage dress, Rubi shoes, Forever New belt, bag c/o Oasap and necklace c/o Oasap 
Meet yet another op-shop find! This dress was pulled off of the rack by one of the volunteer ladies, with excitement, when I asked her if she had any retro dresses in. It was only $3 and the tags say that it was made in England so that must explain the beautiful quality. I'm hoping to shorten it however, right above the knee, to make it a little more '21st century'. It's quite a lovely frock. I've been very happy with my op-shop finds as of late... I can now say proudly that 70% of my wardrobe is now vintage/ retro and thrifted. I love it so much because not only am I saving plenty of dough, but it's also helping the environment out a whole lot. It's nice to know that I'm contributing to saving the earth! :)
As for the accessories; the gorgeous collar necklace and pretty bag were sent to me from Oasap. I was pleasantly surprised with both items. The quality of the bag is exceptional and I can honestly say I can't fault it in any way! As for the necklace, I was worried that the metal would be quite cheap looking but it looks lovely and the quality is great :)
This location was really surreal to take photos at. I've been scoping out a few new locations for outfit posts and this one caught my eye. It was an open area of trees and a few weeds (I know, weeds! But they were pretty none the less). It was windy and raining whilst these photos were being taken so it added quite a pleasant, dreamy feel to the photos. What do you think?

Thanks to Krissy, my uber cool cousin for taking these photos ♥

I will definitely wear my hair like that more often then haha! That dress is super, a real bargain for $3 - I love it when that happens! When you find a real gem for such a cheap price, although I wish I happened more regularly!

The bag is stunning! I love the details on the top half, such a wonderful gift. That will definitely come in handy for all your bits and bobs whilst on your daily journeys I'm sure!

You always look so cute! <3

I think that dress would look so cute shortened! I'm a huge fan of shorter hemlines (but not too short! ;D). It's great that you've been finding so much at thrift stores lately. I don't usually find lots of clothes I like at thrift stores, but I usually find lots of dishes/housewares.

And thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I always love hearing from you. <3
