    Great thread. Lovely pics. I like repurposing tube dresses and sarongs.

    I'm wearing a blue/purple tube maxi dress w/a neon lime green v lightweight sweater & Roman sandals today. Its really hot and pretty outside.

    You're welcome everyone! :grin: I'm thinking we can start a series of threads on seasonal trends so we can compile our own look-books and post deals, etc...

    If anyone has an idea for another Spring tread let me know and I'll get the thread started. Just @ me.

    Ohhh! Just thought of one. How about crop tops?

    I bought 2 from Asos and I'm not sure how to wear them and not look skanky (or fat). Like Serena mentioned that's hard to do. :giggle:

    she also adds heels the right way (which is difficult for long casual skirts/dresses)

    do you know the brand of these shoes?

    Thanks. I already have shoes similar to it. And they don't even have the purple anymore. I know one of you girls bought the lastof the purples. Who did it? :look: All the have left is the mink color, which is a nice neutral :yep:

    I am about to head out for a day of rag housin' (thrift stores) looking for vintage maxi skirts. I have one that I bouht from Ebay, but I need more.

    This is a good place to pick some up and dress them up to look really stylish.

    I'm pretty sure everyone else can see them. All the pics are hosted on tumblr so maybe you have it blocked in your browser somehow...

    Can you do a thread strictly on accessories trending right now? Bags, rings, necklaces, earrings, belts, headwraps, headbands maybe even throw shoes in there :D

    I thought about that but it's harder to get style ideas from just a plain dress unless you want to run out and buy that exact one.

    I can add some dresses to this thread but most of the pics that offer any sort of variety have things like a button down shirt tied around the waist or a cute jacket with it.
