One of the perks of getting into ethical fashion is the fun of hunting for second-hand clothing. I’ve started using some great online resources such as Poshmark and Thredup, and these are a great way to hunt for things I’ve seen in stores in the past. This dress is an example of that. I saw it at Madewell last year and fell in love with the dreamy lightweight silk, the pretty print, and the pockets. I recently found it on Poshmark for less than half of the original price, and I can’t stop wearing it! The silk material means that it is the perfect thing to throw on during these hot and sticky months. For today’s look I paired it with a brown belt and sandals. I know black and brown together is supposed to be a no-no, but since the spots on the dress are beige, I feel like it works. I topped the look off with my favorite (e.g. only) hat, and I love the 1970s vibe it gives the look.
Belt: Target, old
Sandals: American Eagle Outfitters, last year
Hat: Charming Charlie
