L’ Ensemble Du Jour: Orange Crush

Since I posted about Orange lipstick last week, I have found myself being drawn to the colour like a moth to a flame! So when I spied this little citrus hued floral sundress in someone else’s arms at a local thrift store, I made sure to (politely) hover in her vicinity in case she decided to skip it. Lucky for me, she did not purchase it.

After trying it on, I knew I had to take it home with me. The thing that surprised me the most about this frock was that it is not actually vintage, which it certainly appeared at first glance. Nope! This fit n’ flare dress was made by none other than Isaac Mizrahi…for Target! At 10 bucks, I just could not resist.   Continue reading

Prada Minimal Baroque Sunglasses…or are they?

While thrifting earlier this week, a pair of sunglasses managed to catch my eye from clear across the shop. They were big, bright and bold as well as somewhat familiar looking. That was when I spun through my fashion memory bank and realized that they bore a striking resemblance to Prada’s Minimal Baroque Sunglasses! I loved the curve of these shades and the black and white combo feels so fresh and summery. After trying them on in a nearby mirror, I knew I had to have them. The $8.95 price tag made this designer inspired find all the more sweet!

Today I wore these bad-boys with a vintage gingham plaid dress (thrifted), my favorite patent leather Clarks sandals and my vintage white wicker handbag. Topped of with vintage milk-glass screwbacks and a rhinestone cat brooch, the ensemble was complete! Looking forward to wearing these all season long!

XOXO
