The Shift Dress – Thrifty Thursday

shift dress (2)

I wanted to dedicate this weeks thrifty Thursday to the humble shift dress. I have a number of different shift dress and being quite short with out much of waist, the style always works well for me. The shift dress pictured above (the picture was taken in 2011 but I have been wearing the exact same shift dress today) cost me around £10. Not bad for a dress that I wear so regularly. As shift dresses are such a classic style, they are not usually difficult to pick up in  a charity shop.

I find a plain colour is perfect for showing off my favourite accessories including statement necklaces and scarves. I also love a patterned shift for a brighter look for the evening or worn with a jacket for work.

Oxfam Fashion just happen to have a lovely selection of shift dresses at extremely thrifty prices. Here are my faves:

I hope that you are having a good week? Not long to go until the weekend, I am so ready for it!

With warmest wishes
