Spring Trends On A Budget

IMG_3997

When I go thrift shopping I am instantly drawn to patterns and prints. This piece caught my eye with its combo of polka dots and flowers, perfect for Spring. I was rushing the day I bought this and didn’t try it on or look it over for flaws like I usually do before I purchase any thrifted item but it was $2 so I went for it!

When I got this home I realized it was a nightgown! Like a frumpy mumu, granny housecoat, complete with one pocket for your tissues!  I tried it on and as you’d want sleepwear to fit, it was loose and shapeless with a bow at the neckline.  I didn’t give up on it, instead I got creative!

Luckily, this nightgown has an elastic neckline so I thought, what would this look like if I pushed it off the shoulder? Pretty good! Then I thought, what if I add a belt and cinch this waist. Even better!  I tucked the bow at the neckline, added embroidered heels and colorful earrings I bought in Mexico and this nightgown became a dress, complete with current trend off the shoulders and floral prints.

I finished this look off with another thrifted item, this beaded clutch which looks like it was made for this outfit!
