In The Fashionista's Closet: Stink Face

I almost didn't do an outfit post today, nothing seemed to be working, don't you hate those days? I definitely feel that my winter wardrobe is more indicative of my personal style, in summer I believe it's more of a comfort thing. Especially in Texas, there's no layering, people want the least amount of clothing possible which is not always a good thing. In winter you can layer with different textures and also streamline looks with black tights and pops of color in your shoes and coats. I have sometimes wondered if I'm happier with my winter wardrobe because I was born in winter. OR maybe I'm just a weirdo....

But anyway.....

I found this fuschia Trina Turk dress at a thrift store for five bucks(!) There's a Trina Turk label but no size tag so I just crossed my fingers that it would fit (no dressing rooms at this thrift store) and it did! I believe that the dress is silk and it has pockets. *Did I mention that any dress with pockets is a deal sealer for me?

I paired with my Steve Madden pewter pump (previously seen here) and purple/gold tone statement necklace, similar to the ones that I have for sale but mine cost waaaaayy more retail and didn't come with earrings. 

But I am inspired by The Glamourai and her seemingly effortless style and daring mix of prints. I will shop my closet and see what jumps out at me tomorrow....

Until then, here's one of my fave songs and my current ringtone:

Pockets seal the deal for me too.

Hmmmph...I don't know many people who can wear sample sizes from a thrift store! YOU make me sick!

I love the details on that dress! I'm peeping that chair you are sitting in too!

Just wanna say I love your blog and am so grateful for another Texan talking about how to dress from July - Sept. I really feel like the worst part of our summer requires its own style... there's no way i can wear what the fashion mags suggest for summer wear. We've got summer on a WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL.

Also, love your thrifted style. I work it hard down here in Austin, but I'm from Dallas and can only imagine the thrifty goodness up there in fancy town.

Much respect!

Love the outfit and that necklace is the bizness! Also want to know where you got that chair from!

Thanks ladies! As far as the chair, I got it at a garage sale, I think it was $15 bucks. I want to re-cover it in a fun fabric but my talent in that area is lacking.....
