Vintage Find: French Fuschia Frock

IMG_7621(1)IMG_7632This “Les Ambassadeurs” dress is one of my all-time favorite thrift finds.  I love the heaviness of the fabric, the subtle hounds tooth check, long sleeves, shoulder pads and pockets – they just don’t make dresses like this anymore.  It’s truly a timeless classic wardrobe staple for me and I paid around $10 for it at a San Francisco thrift shop!

IMG_7629I’m wearing those Versace for H&M heels in these shots – they are the only heels I own which I absolutely cannot walk in.  They’re 5 inches with no platform in the front, so that could be why.

IMG_7600I’m also wearing Forever 21 bracelets, vintage clutch, Hanes super opaque ‘blackout’ tights and cat eye sunnies c/o Zerouv.

 

 

  • Wow, you have the best thrift finds! What a fantastic dress. I love the texture of the fabric and it even has pockets! Gasp! I love everything about it. The black shoes and tights was a genius pairing too. Lovely!

  • Totally in love with that dress! Truly a timeless piece. I love fantastic thrift store finds. I usually spend a few hours at my local thrift store when I go. Really taking the time to comb through everything has netted me some excellent finds!
