THURSDAY'S THRIFT...vintage sherbet


Hello darling readers, remember when I said that I was going to wear more vintage clothing as one of my New Year's Resolutions?  Well, in trying to stick to my own promises, I am wearing this vintage dress by Sherbet!!!  I love this dress.  I found it at Goodwill for $5.99.  I love its sheer, flowy, lightweight material and roomy size that allows for draping.   I added a punch of color with my tights picking up one of the many sherbet colors in this dress.  Believe me, I know sherbet!  I serve Rainbow sherbet to the seniors once a month during their ice cream social and I currently have sherbet in my freezer even though it is freezing outside.
I am wearing my newer boots from Macy's by Inc.  These boots go with everything and are not too bad in the comfort department...

This BOHO Jessica Simpson hat was snagged at Marshall's quite sometime ago but it still pairs well with a lot of my vintage 60's and 70's dresses..
   
My vintage Carlisle suede belt was also found at Goodwill for .99cents.  It has great gold hardware in the front but fastens in the back...it is one of my favorite belts.  I found a blue one in a different style the same day.


I know you can't see my roots in this photo but if I don't dye my hair soon, I will be ombre which I would probably like....
 
Anne Klein Jewelry,  Macy's many years ago.....on sale, of course

 
Have a great day darlings, I am going to hook up with Spunky Chateau for her Thursday's are for Thrifters....stop by and get inspired.  Show off your thrifted finds here!!!  I am wearing this dress all day...off to the thrift, have not been in weeks.  xoxo

Holy smokes, that is a great dress. If you ever get tired of it, please, send it my way. And the styling is just perfect. Love the color of your tights!

I love this look. If you hadn't said the dress was sheer, I would've thought it to be a heavier fabric. It is really pretty.

Oh Dawn vintage is so you- everything just works. That dress is stunning (I would like one please!) and those coloured tights pull the look together perfectly.

You are so stylishly chic! I love this look for you and the hat makes you look so Hollywood doll. See you soon!

Mongs said...

wow... stunning as usual. I like that dress, I would have bought it in a heartbeat too, only I don't think I can look as stunning. The Sherbet tights are fabulous! Looks great with the boots.

MORE vintage clothes in the new year? I can get behind that!! I like how your dress manages to pull together a lot of colours but still look somewhat demure against the dark background. And you asymmetrical belt buckle is a cute detail. And the icy trees in the background?? <3
