printed dress + thrift sisters link up

thrifted printed dressIt’s Wednesday, so we know it’s time for our weekly Thrift Sisters link up!  This week, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I, are rocking printed dresses.  Head over to Keren’s blog to see the details on this very funky and chic animal printed dress.

thrifted printed dressthrifted printed dressI found this little printed dress at Buffalo Exchange, one of my absolute favorite consignment shops here in San Diego.  I have to be honest with you guys though.  I was shopping with a friend when we both saw the dress.  She immediately thought that it would be perfect for me, but I wasn’t too sure.  She insisted that I at least try it on before discarding it, and I relented.  However, once I slipped this printed dress on, I immediately fell in love with it.  It pays to shop with a friend sometimes.

Now, it’s time to jump into our Thrift Sisters link up!  Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I launched our Thrift Sisters link up, encouraging you to post thrifted or thrifty priced items to this link up.  We are very appreciative of those who take the time to link up their great outfits.  This week’s featured Thrift Sister is the beautiful Ksenia from K’s Lookbook.  We especially love how she styled this dress with the scarf!  She surely has given me some ideas for my next scarf outfit.  Check out her blog for great thrifty style inspirations.
