Thrifting Uniform: Floral Maxi

Photobucket

Photobucket
This is my normal “thrifting uniform”.
It consists of a short, flowy dress or maxi dress, flats, and a cross body bag.

1. Most of our thrift stores don’t have dressing rooms, so I have to try on my bottoms right there in the aisle; hence the dress. I mostly wear maxis, as opposed to shorter dresses. I don’t run the risk of having a wardrobe malfunction while I’m slipping my pants,skirts, or shorts on under my dress.
We wouldn’t want that!

2. You already know why I wear flats. I mean come on, who can fully thrift in heels? I sure cant. I don’t want anything hindering my shopping.

3. I wear a cross body bag because its convenient & leaves me hands free. I don’t have to worry about lugging around a purse. I also don’t have to worry about having my purse in my shopping cart & have to constantly watch it while trying to scour the aisles.

4.Throw on a few cute accessories, and there you have it…..my thrifting uniform

    Very cute dress. Is that a purple watch I spy with my lil' eyes? Nice! I really want a purple watch in my future.

    I don't like trying on clothes, anyway, so I can pretty much wear whatever to go thrifting. Or just shopping, in general. The only constant is flats. The type of purse is not a problem, either, cause I can just throw it in the cart.

    This is a great thrifting uniform comfortable, stylish, and hands free. Love it! I normally wear shorts, t-shirt and a fanny pack. I know some people think fanny packs are hideous but there perfect for thrifting and mine are cute! LOL

    Let's see if I can remember what I attempted to post yesterday from my phone (sadface). Love the dress and your hair gave me the I want to grow some and rock it short and spiked. It gave me hair life all over again, yes indeed! I love maxi dresses. I own about 20 maybe more. they are my summer staple. Slip on a dress with wedges or flats and keep it moving. I recently started adding accessories to jazz them up. Any good thrfiting finds?
