My mom and I have similar tastes in clothing (sometimes). We have our own styles too (as I so delicately told her when I was five years old). Because there’s overlap in the things we like, we sometimes end up buying the same things. We found these dresses at a street market in Florida. They have a soft, almost terry feel with a nice stretch and a retro neckline.
There are a lot of different ways we plan to style these dresses. My mom already paired it with leggings for her birthday dinner. This time, she wore tights and boots.
I decided to try gray instead of black as my accent color. I removed the belt that came with the dress to see how it would change the shape.
I’ll try it with boots next and later with nude heels and bare legs.
I’m including this dress is my Ethical Fashion Blogger Roundup because it was reasonably priced ($20), included a faux leather belt (animal-friendly), and is made in the USA. It’s hard to find clothing made domestically and I like buying American when I can.
Oh, one more thing: My mom perfected her flat iron technique. The Hana Flat Iron I wrote about recently worked well for her smooth-haired look.
