Fave Finds: Karen’s Purple Polka Dot Dress

Who: Karen of The Quiet Owl

What: Purple dotted dress

Where: Hip Zipper Vintage in Nashville, Tennessee

How much: $10

When I use it: “All the time!  It originally had long sleeves and I cut them off, so now it’s the perfect summer dress.  And, it matches my hair perfectly!”

Shopping tips: “Check out the ‘unzied’ dress section of your thrift store. A lot of vintage dresses were either handmade or are missing the tags, so this is a great place to find goodies.”

    Fantastic how she has cut the sleeves off to make it her own. How clever!

    I like the matching hair/clothes idea. If I ever dye my hair an interesting color, I’ll try that.

    Love the Hip Zipper! I got my wedding shoes there – brown, patent leather Mary Jane pumps from the 70s. Lots of fun and it matched perfectly w/ my dress!

    Love that dress!
    I’m not a huge fan of the peter pan collar but think it is great on this purple number.
    Cheers,
