I had something entirely different in mind to wear today and then looked at the beautiful weather forecast and made a game-time decision to switch into one of my recent thrifted Anthro-brand dresses…
I suspect this dress is from several years ago but it is in great shape and #noanthroleftbehind and IT HAS POCKETS!
I didn’t know how much I loved dresses with pockets until I started thrifting. In fact, I didn’t know how much I liked dresses period until I started thrifting! I didn’t think the everyday woman could wear them, I was worried if I wore them to work or around my kids they would get wrecked, and I wanted somewhere to put my
phone tissue! There are two dress game-changers: thrifting – makes them affordable, and pockets – make them wearable. And now, I won’t confess how many dresses I have but I will say I love them ALL! Especially my dresses with pockets!
I do have to be choosy about when I wear dresses to work – on any given day, I could encounter paint, snot, the school gymnasium, swings and criss-cross-applesauce. If you don’t know what that means, you probably work somewhere where you can wear dresses a lot more often than I can!
One little pocket adds so much functionality! When you go thrifting, keep an eye out for dresses with pockets, skirts with pockets and tops with pockets!
I’m a huge fan of dresses with open backs, as well as incorporating lace into a wedding dress. Thank you for sharing the inspiration!
