A Fantastic Flutter-Sleeve Find

Who: Annie Robertson of the blog Little Ocean Annie

What: Vintage flutter-sleeve dress

Value Village in Portland, Oregon

How Much:

When I Use It:
Any time I am feeling the need for a little pick-me up, I throw on this bright dress! It’s breezy and lightweight, the shoulders are lightly padded, and the sleeves are fluttery.

Shopping Tips: Map out your trip with your most important finds as a priority! I always go straight for the shoes and purses at any thrift store, because they require the least amount of trying on! Then dresses, skirts, and if I have time, blouses and sweaters. This way, if I have to leave a store quickly, I won’t regret not having looked at my favorite sections! Oh, and make friends with the workers! You’ll be able to find out about sales and the days they put out new merchandise!

Attention Blog Readers! We know you are the most clever and most stylish bunch on the web, and we’d love to feature you on future Favorite Find Posts! Please email us (favfinds@modcloth.com) a picture of you with one of your favorite shopping finds (a piece of furniture, a hard-to-find record, the perfect vintage boots, or any other treasure) and answer the questions: Who, What, Where, How Much, When I Use It, and Shopping Tips. We can’t wait to see all the cool items you’ve discovered!

    I love that dress! I think it should be longer, but that would be a quick fix!

    What a great find! The dress looks perfect and who wouldn’t want a little garment pick me up? Great thrift shopping advice as well.
