What I am Wearing - Styling a Denim Dress

I had been looking for a cute denim or chambray dress for a while, but could not find one in my price range or that was a good fit until I came across this one from Old Navy on the site ThredUp.  If you have not heard of this website, it is an online consignment store where you can buy and sell gently used clothing.  I purchased this dress for $10 and it looks brand new!  I love the cut of this dress, with the waistline, because it gives definition.  Shirt dress styles tend to hang on me and make me look like I have no shape. This dress can easily be styled many different ways.  Today I am showing two ways to style it with heels.


My first look was inspired by the ever stylish Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots (don't ya just love the name?!)  When I saw her style a chambray dress with orange strappy heels, I knew I had to re-create it.

I added a colorful scarf instead of a necklace to accessorize it.  This is the Mazee scarf in Fuchsia from Aventura Clothing.  If you want to snag one of these for yourself at 60% off, leave your email in the comments below and I will send you my ambassador discount code!



For my second look, I paired it with red, peeptoe heels and a gold fringe necklace with red stones.  I am carrying a navy and white striped/denim purse that my friend made for me.

  6. Aww Mary, I have never seen a classic fit+flare denim dress like that. This year I found and purchased a few perfect denim and chambray dresses. You will see them this Summer. I love your interpretation of Jennie's outfit but I love the second look and it is perfect for the 4th of July coming up. I own that same red tassel necklace. Walmart, right?
