Thrift Style Thursday - Time Warp

Let's do the time warp again!  This week's Thrift Style Thursday post was chosen by yours truly!  I chose Time Warp - and encouraged everyone to dress like any of their favorite decades - even if it's the one we're currently in!  I chose to do a 60's inspired look, I love everything about the sixties. I'd usually choose to do a bit of a hippie/flower child vibe if I was going for a 60's inspired look, but this time I went kind of Mad Men-esque instead so I could make it more "work appropriate."  For my look I chose my favorite shift style dress that I bought at one of the two birds pop up shops (and that was the first time I met the fabulous Megan and Nora too!) and I modernized it slightly - but I think it still has a vintage vibe overall! (This dress was also what I wore for my feature in TC Style Magazine this past fall.)

Dress - two birds vintage pop up, Sweater - Old Navy
Scarf - Secret Santa swap, Boots - Target, Belt - JCPenney
Tights - Old Navy

I was trying to go for the dramatic in the above pose, ha.  I don't think I can pull that off real well! Since I was being inspired by Mad Men, I chose to take some pictures in my dad's office at my parents house the other morning before work.  I thought it worked out pretty well, but I did attempt one outdoor photo too.  We're getting closer to spring, it's at least lighter in the mornings outside!

I've really missed this dress, it's one of my favorite items I own,and I'd pushed it to the back of the closet while pregnant and nursing so much because it didn't work well for those things.  We pretty much have Ollie down to only nursing at bedtime now, so I can wear anything I want during the day now!  I'm looking forward to getting back to playing with ways to style this dress again, it's pretty darn versatile!

Don't forget to check out how the other Thrift Style Thursday gals traveled back in time today!  What decade of fashion is your favorite?
