Teal of the Century!

Who: Mary, a fashion and food lover at stylefyles.tumblr.com

What: A teal, vintage-inspired secretary dress

Where: Goodwill. Dayton, Ohio

How Much: $4

When I use It: It’s brand new, so I’ve only worn it once so far! I wore it to the office with a modern blazer for an updated Mad Men feel. I can’t wait to wear it outside the office. The simplicity of the dress allows for such versatility… to be dressed up for a night on the town, or paired with pieces that are flowing and white or cream colored for a day at the park or thrifting around town.

Shopping Tips: Try on everything! I learned this when shopping for homecoming dresses in high school. It seemed to always be the case that the dresses I loved on the rack were only mediocre when I tried them on. Surprisingly, dresses that I was hesitant to try on, always turned out to be lovely in the fitting room! Now, I try on everything that catches my eye, whether it seems tacky, the wrong size- whatever! I love finding those hidden surprises. Also, keep your eyes open for any kinds of steals and deals, even if you might have to transform or alter them before wearing. The necklace I have on in this picture is made out of two Goodwill finds….a ribbon choker necklace and a pearl necklace. I cut the bow off the choker necklace and sewed it onto the pearl necklace and ‘Voila’! Something new, fresh, and unexpected.
