Outfit 11 - Gap Shirt Dress

I had been wanting a shirt dress that wasn't too long for my short stature for awhile, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this on one of my thrifting excursions.  That was awhile ago.  When I wore it this time around, I was bursting at the seams at the bust area.  Hahaha.  That's why I ultimately had to give this to my sister.  :(  Oh well, movin' on! 

I tried to casual it up with this short sleeved jacket.


A cardigan and pearls always makes an outfit look sweeter.  Please excuse how wrinkly this dress looks.  I did attempt to iron it though!


Ah, my new favorite purse!  How faithful you are!

Shirt Dress: Gap - Thrifted

  1. Love the dress and LOVE the bag :) Thanks for sharing on Thrifty Thursday!

  2. @Modest Fashion Sense - Thanks!! Thanks for hosting this! I will try to participate every Thursday! :)

  3. I have the same problem of bursting at the seams near bust.. I notice that if I wear a nice slip underneath and let the buttons of the top or dress at the bust undone, it creates a whole new look, creating a v line which flatters me.

  4. @Kay - Thanks for stopping by! What a wonderful suggestion! I would have never thought about wearing it unbuttoned at the top! I'll have to remember that in the future. =P

  5. I love the pictures of the process! I almost never have troubles with that part of a button-up, but rather around the belly area . . . and yes, I always end up giving things to my sister, too! Though I recently discovered that we actually wear about the same size (very similar measurements) except that she's about 6 inches taller! Hah!

    Anyway, you look verrrry cute in all outfit options, I say.

  6. @Pineapple - Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I love that we are both yellow fruits! =P Sisters are great! You should feature her on your blog! :)

  7. I like the pearls and cardigan look a lot. Great dress and very versatile. Leave it unbuttoned and wear it with jeans or shorts. Really cute!

  8. @kris - Thanks for dropping by and for the suggestions on how to wear the shirt dress. Unfortunately, it's in my sister's hands so I will keep that information for future reference. :D

  9. wow what a great find!!! its so versatile! I love the ways you have styled it! Its could really go with anything, bright, light or in between! thanks for sharing!

  10. @Heather - Thanks! :) Now I regret giving this away to my sister! >_> I'll be on the look-out for another one though! (Maybe I will steal it back!)
