Freckles in April: Closet Orphan

Closet Orphan

F21 dress, old undershirt, thrifted belt, Steve Madden Sandals
I included this dress in a 30 for 30 a while back and haven't worn it since. And I included it in that 30 for 30 because I rarely wore it. The sleeves are a bit weird but I like the neckline, color and knee length. It ended up being great for a 6+ hour car ride, so it has probably earned its way into slightly heavier rotation.

Let's see what you dug up! Link up here or add it to the Flickr group!

  2. i love that dress - it looks super comfortable, but nice and modest so you don't have to layer a ton. i'm glad you picked it for today!

  3. I love that dress, I have a bright blue dress that I absolutely LOVE. I have found it to be one of the more versatile pieces in my closet. :)

  6. Beautifully paired with the yellow belt. You could easily do something to change those sleeves if you wanted to. I really wanted to do this challenge but I've been doing a closet overhaul for the last few months and have gotten rid of most of my closet orphans. Either that, or the ones I have left don't work with how this week heated up for us. But I love seeing what other people are pulling out of their closets.

  9. Hey! Where is my picture? And why can't I comment with my gmail account? (I'm actually having problem commenting on lots of blogs with my account. It's very frustrating.)

  10. I wonder what it would look like with something really ruffly underneath for winter, like maybe this and tights. Could be fun!

  12. I have to agree with Audrey: you could totally mod the sleeves. I think a cap sleeve would look adorable with the rest of the dress. It looks fab though for sure!

  13. GORGEOUS color. I'm obsessed with royal blue at the moment. And anything that makes it through a long car ride is definitely a keeper!
