Vintage Corduroy Dressember

I'm still on cloud nine after the CTV Live at Five "Merry Thriftmas" story aired on Thursday!
It is so much fun to get a glimpse of the TV process - filming, interviewing, the final product!  I am so impressed by Edmonton's TV personalities like Erin Isfeld and Ryan Jespersen who make it seem effortless - putting people at ease, bringing out the best in people they interview, making it interesting for viewers!  They are so talented and we are lucky to have them in Edmonton!  If you missed the story, find it here!  There is still time to thrift some gifts for Christmas AND shop local AND support handmade designers and artists - don't forget to check out She Does Create at the St. Albert Indoor Market on Saturday and at the On the Spot Pop Up Makers Market at Latitude 53 on Sunday AND check out the Edit Shoppe Sunday to use the $10-off code VVBSTYLEMake your Christmas shopping meaningful this year!

Another way to make December meaningful - continue to show support for Dressember!  Wear dresses throughout December and consider a donation to support victims of trafficking and exploitation.  It's easy to do and the funds go where they say they're going!  A shallower reason (!) to wear dresses this holiday season: no waistband.  Dresses are good eating clothes!  I wore a vintage corduroy (oh yeah baby) Woodwards dress all day yesterday at work then to a Christmas party last night and was comfortable the whole time!!
Dress $4 from Goodwill
Leather belt $4.20 from VV Boutique
Miz Mooz shoes $7.70 from VV Boutique
Tights from my closet
And the cutest wood earrings by She Does Create!
I felt like a Charlie's Angel all day.

It is not easy to find a shirt dress with buttons that stay closed!  I had only one incident of an extra top button opening at the party, but I just said I was bringing the seventies to the scene and sauntered away.
Love a good vintage find!  Especially in perfect condition and FOUR DOLLARS!

The dress came with a tie belt which miraculously hit me in the right place! 
Styled differently with a wood necklace $3 VV Boutique

Dresses with pockets rock.

I ended up swapping the earrings for some dangly navy earrings from She Does Create and adding a simple gold necklace for the party.   All in all, my vintage Dressember look made for a fashionable Friday!


  1. Love the Woodwards dress, especially the vintage label. Congrats on the TV and grace do not equate to dollars but they do to sense!
    Your encouragement shines through...thanks.
