Thrifty Thursday: Handkerchief Dress

I love this simple dress. It’s got a neat bandana-style print and it’s a comfortable, stretch cotton knit. It’s basically two rectangles, like a handkerchief, sewn together. The elastic in the waist gives it shape, although it would look cute belted too. My only regret is that I “lost” this in my closet all summer. I should have been wearing it.

gray and black

I wasn’t sure about wearing a glittery sweater for day, but it matched so nicely. I think a bit of shine is fine, especially if the overall look fits your style and the occasion. It’s funny, in the pictures it looks gray. But I bet if I wear it to a club, the lights will reflect off the metallic thread and I’ll light up the night! I’ll let you know how that works out!

The top was on sale at Old Navy. It’s going to look great with dark denim. I got one in gold too (a subtle, champagne color, actually). I want to wear the other one with cream pants. How elegant!
