Fave Finds: Katie’s Profesh Plaid Suit!

Fave Finds: Katie

Who: Katie of Butterfly Loves Snapdragons

What: Vintage plaid dress suit

Where: Y’s Buys thrift store 

How much: $8

When I use it: “I wear this piece all the time. It’s great for a fancy church look, a fun baby shower, or hanging out with family. I’ve worn it countless ways; I also love that it can be styled up from multiple decades!”

Shopping tips: “If you’re torn on whether or not to buy an item, try in your mind to come up with several ways to wear that piece. If you can’t think of at least three, then it probably isn’t going to be an especially versatile item in your wardrobe. I tend to put those selections back on the rack!”

    I love Katie’s advice on three diff remixes, such a great way to know you’ll love and re-ware a piece! and I extra love this suit! It can be tricky to find a good, vintage, but girly looking one and this styling is just perfect w/ the red!

    That is such great advice! I feel like sometimes I’m torn, and I just automatically think, oh I shouldn’t get it. I’m going to try that next time. You look great as always, Katie!
