Style Log: Hey Mama, Welcome to the Sixties! {10 & 2 Challenge}

Misfit #9: The Purple Shirt Dress 
I’ve had this gal in my closet for years. I received her as a gift one year wore it a couple times, then it disappeared into the dark reaches of my small closet. The main reason I never wear it is a)the fit and b)I don’t know how to style the darn thing.

Everything I’m wearing is gifted or thrifted, woot! 

Initial Thoughts 
Does anyone else love the musical Hairspray? ‘Coz I do! I especially love the remake with John Travolta, sure it’s corny at times, but it’s fantastic and overall has a great message. Anyway, I looked in the mirror this morning and thought SIXTIES. Maybe you won’t see it, but I do. So then I attempted to style my hair appropriately. I feel like a retro housewife, haha. 

After Thoughts 
I really like this outfit. I absolutely love purple and yellow {er mustard?} together. The reason I haven’t worn this purple gal much in the past is because it’s hard for me to style. I honestly didn’t think it would look good with higher collared shirts, but I love it with this turtle neck! Plus, this shade of purple is just so pretty! 

Final Verdict
I’m definitely keeping this. I might get fashion block with it occasionally, but it’s an interesting and unique piece that deserves to be in my closet!
