THE 80'S CALLED....bringing back the side pony!!

Hi darling readers...let me tell you about this "Dawn Joy" vintage, thrifted dress that I paid $5.99 for at the Goodwill.  I love it.  It fits to perfection as we all know that fit is everything no matter what size you happen to be.  Do you remember Dawn Joy fashions?  I do!  I wore them in the late 80's and 90's.  I guess that makes me vintage too. I'd like to think of myself as a Classic if you don't mind my saying so.  We all love classics right? Good!
Speaking of classics, my Chanel earrings that I am wearing were a gift from my husband...I dusted them off for this shoot today.

Vintage thrifted sun glasses/they are purple but tough to see in this light as the sun was in and out the entire shoot.  Thrifted clutch was $2.99 Goodwill.

 
This belt stepped out of the late 80's to early 90's as well.  I snagged this at Goodwill for a a buck or two.  It is definitely a belt that I have to wear around my waist as it is too small for my hips.
 
The cold winds were beating me up outside today but I was a brave blogger and froze my nips off...well not off but almost.  I hope that nips is not offensive to anyone...I could have said the other word. 

Thrifted Cupid  booties less than  $10.00 Goodwill
  
   
I can only imagine that most people are trying to come up with a New Year's Resolution that they can stick to.  I would love to hear what you have in mind.  Have a great night, welcome new followers.  Looking forward to getting to know you.  Dawn xoxo

I love a good side pony and yours is very good indeed! Love the leopard booties with this look too; they are brilliant.

I don't have a New Year's resolution, actually. Perhaps I should get one though if that's what all the cool kids are doing...

Have a great New Year's, Dawn!!

Love the blue on you. You styled this beautifully and look amazing in it.
I don't have new years resolutions. I probably ought too, but they just seem to be too much to live up to. I'm in to no stress nowdays.

Hey Sweetie! Hope you had a great Christmas! Ours was good and laid back.
You look great in this outfit. It's been almost a year since I've been blogging and you were one of the bloggers that inspired me that I could do this.
I need to know what size skirt you wear. It's hard to tell what size we are in the photos. I have one you would love so let me know.
