Story of a Yellow Shirtdress

I love a good vintage piece, and this yellow shirt dress caught my eye almost immediately while perusing a thrift shop one afternoon. Its bright color seems to instantly pour on good vibes, no matter what the current state of affairs may be. On this occasion I kept its pairings simple so this bold color truly could stand alone. I added my favorite red lippie (Sephora 01), a matching belt, a fun statement bag, and a pair of comfy sneakers. Check out more of my vintage scores here!

It’s been more than a year since I intentionally changed my style direction, but there are still plenty of days when I look in the mirror and feel like I’m not quite crafting the looks I really want to be wearing. Which is partially because my tastes often veer away from more mainstream badassery and off toward Post-apocalyptic Art Gallery Owner territory, partially because I’m a curvy girl with big hips who doesn’t look like Lou Dillon in a moto or slouchy jeans, and partially because it just takes a while to change your look. But this outfit felt like a success – this is how I want to look. Casual, slightly rumpled, but comfy, happy, a little bit edgy, and 100% me. read more
