One Woman’s Trash

My treasure. Today’s look features a dress that is surely one of my greatest resale shop finds. The burgundy, white, and black zigzag print silk dress has attractive features like playful bell sleeves, and black piping along the bust line, neckline, and sleeves. It is worn with black, t-strap, peep-toe pumps. White pearls add a sophisticated touch. I wore this outfit to an afternoon reception today.

    I can’t think who would deem that dress “trash.” It’s super-fine on you. I love the shoes, too!

    The print is very cool! The way you wear it is nice but it would also look great with gladiator sandals.
