There was a downpour in my town today which resulted in flooding at the thrift store where I work. We had to kick everyone out, close down the store, and mop up the floor with donated linens (all for a generous $7.30 an hour minus taxes!). On the bright side, today was (supposed to be, at least) half off all but one tag day, and nobody had a chance to snatch any of the items I had been eyeing. This purple dress was one of them, and this is an outfit I threw together. I’m playing around with two versions of it, but I think I may want to add something before I wear it out. Suggestions welcome! I prefer the first version but I really want to make a monochromatic outfit work in my wardrobe, which is what spawned the second variation.
