Velvet Take Two

The last time I wore this dress I asked for your advice on what to wear with it. Ashley suggested I wear it with pink. I wore pink tights and my pink flowered jacket. This is sadly still not the right jacket. But the tights make the green look better. Dress-vintage,tights-gift,shoes-payless,jacket-thrift
I've come to the conclusion that this dress looks best with out a jacket. Look at the picture,see how sassy I look. Like a modern day Joan Holloway with smaller hair.
This is more sass!
Today my power went out and my mom needed new professional clothes,so we went to the value village. I found A BRAND NEW DIANE VON FURSTENBERG DRESS for $15! I also got a top and book on tailoring. Have you got any cool finds lately?

Colors naturally found in nature always look the best together, like pink and green (watermelon!) :)

the dress is so lovely and I love the thights with it :)

This dress is beautiful, very mad men and definitely looks better without the jacket. I think you need a shorter more tailored jacket/blazer, but thats just my opinion.

Looking good lovely xxx

Your finds sound fabulous! that dress is gorgeous with those tight! A cute cropped jacket would finish the outfit off beautifully and show off your lovely slim figure. xxx
