Golden Girl

Dress? Thrifted, vintage (similar but pricey) Shoes? Aldo Bag? Thrifted Necklace? Vintage Matisse ( a lot of options on Etsy, I borrowed this one from my mom and she wants it back...ha)

It was warm again this past week and so I carefully lay aside my autumn plaids and reached for a dress that I just thrifted but had already put away for next summer. I love me some good autumn layers but I will gladly take the chance to wear this beauty if the weather decides to give me summer at the end of September.
And I know that the dress looks a little high maintenance with its sparkles and pleats and drapes but honestly, it's the most no fuss thing ever. It came out of the hand wash (it could likely have taken a gentle cycle in the machine but I'm kind of the hand wash princess at this point...) ready to go; it did not even need a steam! On top of that, the material is stretchy, the waist is elastic and the cut is super flattering. It's a fancy dress/track-pants hybrid really, and it's nothing short of a beautiful thing.

Off-topic, but do you use a curling iron to get your hair to look like that? Gorgeous! Any tutorials/tips?

Dress up not down- wore it to church but I would totally wear it to the shop too. I might as well dress up when I can:)
Anon- I use the same Jose Eber clip less curling wand I have had for a few years... My hair has some natural wave so I just give it a boost... If I have time I will do a post on it:)
