In My Closet-Last Le Garage Sale Dress

This is the only item (besides a $5 tank,) that I haven't posted from Le Garage Sale in February.

This dress is from Karen Zambos Vintage Couture and so pretty and very feminine with it's ruffles at the arms and hem. The nude sheer triangle in the chest area seemed a little weird when I first picked it up but it looked better on than I first thought. (It's something that can be worked with some double sided tape.)


I hadn't had a chance to wear it until yesterday, when the weather was finally right! I added a vest and switched out the belts...I've had this one for so long! The buckle broke off at one point and after hunting for something new I decided to just have it repaired. So worth it!

No lipstick today, gloss only. But thanks to everyone who left an opinion on the topic. There are a few fans for a tangerine shades, so I'll be looking into it soon.

Anyway, I wore this for running errands and out to lunch at one of my favorite local cafes...

(Gratuitous pretty food shot...) Mmm, yes, it was delicious!

Its a gorgeous dress hun, I would put a twist and wear it backwards to accentuate the back.

What a great dress and that cake looks so yummy! What cafe is it from?

Yes, the Goodwill I was speaking of is on 183, the one next door to a Salvation Army. It can't get anymore perfect for a thrifter than that!!

I haven't done a thifting day in Austin without Mr. B in a long time, maybe we could meet up for lunch one day! There's so many great lunch places in Austin!
