I've decided I really like the high waist band on dresses. This style helps hide my gut.
Yes Ladies, I've gained weight and it's one of the reasons I haven't been too thrilled about snapping pictures of myself and even less excited to post them for everyone to see.
Dress by Catos - Thrift (either Goodwill or Salvation Army)
Necklace is Goodwill
I love this top. Dressy enough for work, casual with a pair of jeans. It's also cotton, like a T. Super comfy.
Top, skirt, belt and necklace - Thrift purchases.
Notice I didn't wear the belt tight. Loose worn belts are another way to hide that middle section.
This shift dress is like wearing a night gown.
I usually wear a shirt with it.
Here is the same dress layered early last fall.
The day I wore the dress to work without the shirt, I received tons of compliments on it.
All I could think was I've worn this dress several times over the last couple of years, only with a shirt.
Dress is a Goodwill purchase.
I've worn this to work with a cami under the top, because it is very low cut.
Recently my daughter and I attended a friend's outdoor wedding.
The top is a Goodwill purchase mixed with a skirt I've had for years and a faux pearl necklace.
I almost didn't share the next photos....because...
I was super tired, after a long work day and it shows.
However, I love this little Boho looking NEW dress found thrifting at Salvation Army.
I think I paid $2.99 for it.
The name brand in it is Magic. Never heard of it. I just love the colors.
Our Georgia mornings have been cooler this week. So I tossed on my thin thrifted cardigan.
Later in the day, it was warm enough to shuck it.
The necklace was purchased at Goodwill.
I wore bracelets, but had already removed them before I walked outside for the picture.
The brown and yellow beaded bracelet was a recent Target clearance purchase for less than $2.
I love the details on the bottom of this dress.
Sewn in beads.
I saved the best for last! What I wore today:
This entire outfit (except my earrings) is THRIFT!
The shoes, purse, skirt, top, cami and necklace.
High waist band on this top, along with pops of red.
I like how this outfit made me feel.
There you have it. More thrift outfits. The cold hard truth of why I haven't posted my outfits. The eyes closed and tired photos, along with a wedding photo and this last one that I actually love.
Are there times you just don't feel up to your best?
Does it make you want to hide?
