Hippie Spin

Dress: Courtesy of Threadcase // Necklace: Antique Mall, $6 // Belt: Thrifted, $2 // Shoes: Target, $12

When I first received this darling frock from Threadcase, my instinct was to style it in a pretty and proper way. Rather than go the expected route, I decided to give it a more bohemian treatment with a chunky wooden necklace, bold suede belt and casual platforms. I loved the result, but next time around, pink pumps and pearls it is.

Love this dress! Your styling is great - I would have gone the "proper" route too, but I love the bohemian twist.

What a versatile dress, I'm liking this more casual bohemian look and can't wait to see the lady-like outfit. The wood necklace is amazing, at first I thought it was a part of the dress!

That is a beautiful dress and it looks great on you. I just love lace. I could see this with a tan leather jacket (when the weather is not so hot!)

I love the unconventional take on this dress! I wear dresses so often. It's nice to get good ideas on how to give them a different look.

I love how you went unconventional with the lace. I did the same thing recently and was giddy over the look! Although, I can't wait to see the demure look you create!

I got the same shoes from Target also for $12 bucks. I was pretty excited about it. Can't wait to style it. Based on your posts, it will go with a lot of things. I love accessories that can compliment any outfit.
