Recently I’ve been in the process of doing some deep deep cleaning when it comes to my clothing and accessories inventory. I’m doing this for two reasons: 1.) I have TOO much stuff! and 2.) I’ve decided to start an eBay business to start sharing with the world all my fabulous thrift store finds. Though it’s nearing fall, I felt a ‘spring cleaning’ was in order and went through everything to see what I should either keep, donate, or put up on the new eBay store.
Somewhere along the pillaging of my dresses something magical happened. I began discovering long lost loves, aka dresses I had totally forgotten about. My style over all is pretty timeless/classic and this was apparent when I stumbled across a dress I bought 9 years ago at Crossroads Trading Company. It is the epitome of classic style (White House Black Market brand) and when I slipped it on I felt just as lovely in it today as I did when I bought it all those years ago. I was brought back to a time when I wore it in New York to the MET Opera House. That was a pretty magical night filled with opera, a lovely Chagall painting, 5 course dinner, love, and my beautiful black and white strapless dress. I remember thinking how I felt like Audrey Hepburn that night.
The dress is a White House Black Market brand dress and made impeccably. I’m so thankful that I found it again this weekend and had the opportunity to re fall in love with it. A dress like this will be beautiful yesterday, today, and forever….it’s definitely a keeper!

TIP: Some key pieces I suggest investing in while thrifting are classic pieces like the dress I have on here. Another style of dress that I can’t get enough of are wrap dresses. I still have a wrap dress from when I was 18! You can never go wrong with a nice black and white print, too.
