Fave Finds: Lauren’s Electric Purple Grandma Dress

Who: Lauren from Introvert’s Introduction 

What: “Electric purple grandma dress”

Where: Value Village

How Much: $5

When I Use It: “I wear this beauty when I’m feeling the need to feel extra pretty, but comfortable at the same time.”

Shopping Tips: “Altering pieces from the thrift store can truly make the garment your own, and make you feel accomplished showing off something with your own personal touch. If you love a piece because of its color and fantastic collar (like this dress), but are taken aback by the shoulder pads, long length, and too-big size, don’t let that stop you.”
