Fave Finds: Aisa's Tri-Toned Vintage Dress

Who: Aisa of Drowning Equilibriums

What: “Vintage dress from my grandma. The dress is 50-plus years old!”

Where: Grandma’s closet

How Much: “Aside from the alteration fee (I had it shortened), which was about $1, it was basically free!

When I Use It: “Whenever I’m feeling whimsical and girly. Also, during those days I can’t program my brain to mix and match clothes — this dress is the perfect lifesaver!”

Shopping Tips: “First off, do not underestimate your grandmother’s closet! And based on my own experience, I always, always find the best pieces of clothing in thrift/vintage shops. It’s just how you wear and mix and match your clothes. It is also best to shop during sale periods. Yes, thrift shops do conduct month-end sales. This is the perfect time to shop and hoard. This is the time when you can take home 20 pieces of clothing for like $20.”
