Fave Finds: Marisa’s Antique Mall Dress

Who: Marisa from The Shades of Monet Chronicles

What: Navy dress with a striped, mint collar

Where: An antique mall

How much: $8

When I use it: “I wore it for the first time to my sister’s wedding rehearsal on the beach, but also plan on donning it on date nights with the Mr. and perhaps [at] a casual holiday party.”

Shopping tips: “I find some of my favorite dresses in antique malls. Don’t hesitate to get to know the vendors that set up shop there. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked away with free pieces of clothing — even bags of it — that they have wanted to get rid of to move new inventory in. They are almost always willing to work out deals with you and give you a lower price on something if you just ask.”
