The White Sweater Dress

I lucked up at my local Goodwill Super Store when I found this lovely white sweater dress. This can be worn with leggings or tights ; add a pair of knee or ankle boots, or high heels if you're wearing pantyhose.
I wore mine to a craft fair in December. My leggings were of a Christmas pattern in red, green, and white and I included a pair of white fur boots and a Santa hat. Be creative.

This outfit garnered a lot of attention on Polyvore.com... and I must say that I love the calming effect it has on my psyche. This is the type of outfit that I search out in thrift stores. The bohemian style top is something I come across frequently at Goodwill. The style has been around for years, and those who wore it as a trend, tossed it in the donation bin as soon as they got tired of it. The fact that this style has been around for so long makes it Timeless. That being said, this is not a look for everyone. I buy these tops when I am feeling the Gypsy in me rise.
The linen pants are in a classic sand/beige color that will always be in style. I love linen pants, but I have to advise you, if you do not like to iron, then buy something else. Affluent women can afford a house keeper, or dry cleaning at the very least. You will find linen in the wardrobe of such women because someone else is keeping the fabric looking like a quality piece. I iron my own linen to keep it crisp. It is worth the effort and builds your Timeless investment pieces without breaking the bank... that is, as long as you are paying thrift store prices.
See you in the thrift stores, friends!
