Fave Finds: Maria’s ’80s Dotted Dress

Fave Finds: Maria

Who: Maria from Avenue M

What: Navy button-up dress from the ’80s

Where: “The ‘Smiley’ op-shop in my local town in Southern Queensland, Australia – there’s a giant smiling face on the sign, hence the loving name.”

How much: $3

When I use it: “This dress is very flattering and easy to wear. It’s perfect for shopping as it’s easy to slip on and off, so I can try lots of other vintage clothes without too much hassle!”

Shopping tips: “A lot of wonderful op-shops are overlooked because they are independent businesses. Give all op-shops a go! The ‘Smiley’ shop in my town is a treasure chest full of beautiful pieces all under $10 and not many know about it!”
