Layer Your Way to a Different Era

Meghan's Dress-to-Apron Reader ReFash
Happy Valentine's Day!

Today’s outfit is a result of me looking at my wardrobe and saying, “Meh.”

I wanted to wear a very nice-fitting grey dress I thrifted a while back, but it’s quite dull on its own, and I was in the mood for something a bit more glamorous. Just tossing on a sweater and leggings wasn’t going to cut it.

Luckily, I have plenty of other thrifted layers to choose from.


This is a combination that makes me think of the 20’s, but perhaps that’s just me. Layering the grey dress over a vintage black maxi gives the illusion of a dropped waist, and the art deco print from the pajama jacket I’m wearing could have hopped right out of !

Yep. I'm wearing my PJs in public.

That lovely bauble around my neck came from the same nice gent who gifted me a most impressive vintage haul he had before he moved to his new house. None of the items (save the shoes) in this outfit cost more than $1.

I'm ready for my gimlet, please.

So, the next time you get a case of the wardrobe “Mehs”, why not try experimenting with a bit of atypical layering?
