Little White Dress + Jimmy Choo

Little White Dress - Thrifting Diva Welcome to the stage your LBD’s little sister, the LWD, aka the little white dress.   Similar to your little black dress, the little white dress is a classic beauty.  However, as the weather warms up, the little white dress is lighter, carefree and frankly more appealing than your little black dress.  The LWD is a spring and summer staple as it’s the best way to instantly create a fresh, crisp and chic look.

I found this beautiful crochet dress at Asos on sale for $25 on sale, marked down from $58.  You should know that I am allergic to paying full price, so of course, getting this beauty on sale made me even more excited to open the package.  I immediately fell in love with the scalloped hems, the length is perfect and it’s a dress that I can see myself wearing to so many different occasions in the summer.

Paired this look with a black vintage clutch that I thrifted from Salvation Army for $1.50.  Thrift stores boxes are the best place to search through for vintage purses.  Of course, their prices are always going to blow you away.  I choose a simple clutch to allow my little white dress to shine.

Dress Over Pants - Thrifting Diva
I’ve always loved the idea of the trend of layering a dress over pants, but worried that it would look awkward, or too hard to pull off.  However, when it comes to fashion, trying new trends is a must!  It’s the perfect way of having a little fun with fashion.  Some trends you test out and you you hate, and some trends, you simply fall in love.  For me, the dress over pants combo is amazing!

Maxi Dress - Thrifting Diva
Summer is on the horizon, which means vacation time.  When I think of easy packing for vacation, I think maxi dresses.   The family and I took a Caribbean cruise a couple of months ago, and procrastinating when it came to packing, I defaulted to pulling mostly maxi dresses for the trip.  If you are not already a fan of maxi dresses for vacations, then I hope to convince you.  No matter what your body type, the maxi style is flattering on everyone, and even more a must have for vacation.
