Getting the Skinny on Modernized Vintage

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. I purchased this little number at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. I liked this dress because it has a number of possibilities. That is an important tip when buying something, ask yourself , "Can this item serve more than one purpose?". This dress's material is transparent and would make a great cover up for the beach or pool. For everyday wear, I used my good old fashioned slip for a lining.  I knew when I got this dress I wanted to wear it with a skinny belt. So for this post, I used to different types of gold skinny belts and pumps.  I originally liked the second outfit the best, but looking at the photos I like the first outfit better. The gold studded belt from Forever 21 is just the right amount of gold to accent the pumps. You really don't have to spend much money to accessorize an outfit.

  1. Oooh, that's a tough one! I love both but the shoes from the bottom picture are my favorite. Looking gorgeous as usual!

  2. Right on! I am with Karen, you look stunning as always and I would rock both pair of shoes!!

  3. That's a really neat outfit! I love the crescent belt as I haven't seen it many times before. I think your shoes really pull your look together to give you that extra flair!

  4. Fabulous belts!! And that dress is fab on you.
