Okay so now that I have your attention, you guys are going to think I’m ridiculous when I share this secret. So remember when I said I shop in every area of the thrift store, I really meant it! So with that being said, I’ll go ahead and let you in on the secret: I shop the maternity section. Before you guys even start, there’s no baby, but should that stop me from wearing a cute maternity dress. I think NOT! If it makes things any better, I only buy maternity dresses, not pants. Although, would that be so bad…. I mean elastic in the waist is a win!! The goodwill usually has maternity dresses from Target; however, this one came from Old Navy. The best thing about it, is the elastic in the stomach area lol!
Stripes are my favorite so how could I pass up this dress. Oh yeah, I’ll let you in on another secret of mine: How to get away with wearing a bodycon dress to work. That’s right, there’s a way to make those bodycons look professional, lol. My secret: Just add layers and no one suspects a thing. Some of you may be wondering, why does one have to disguise wearing a bodycon. If this is you…. you, my friend, are body privileged and probably could get away with wearing anything to work. Some of us aren’t so lucky (catch my thrift.. I mean drift). Anyway, I decided to pair this dress with a long black vest and leopard loafers. I really like mix printing and knew that the loafers would work because the color scheme was the same as the dress. Of course, I had to layer this dress so I decided the vest was perfect. This vest can be styled in so many ways and it happened to be trending when I bought it. Finding a trending item at the thrift store is super exciting because I’m not paying the “trending price”. Fashion definitely repeats itself, so when things start trending…. I head to the thrift store first!
So now that you guys know all of my secrets, go buy maternity dresses and wear those inappropriate dresses to work… the right way!
