Once upon a time, I used to shy away from yellow. I used to think the color looked odd against my blonde hair. But, never say never, because these days I am loving (not so) mellow yellow. When I found this dress, I decided to forgo my yellow aversion and venture forth into a new world of color, and I’m so glad I did.
I took this yellow dress from summer to fall with booties, a houndstooth blazer, and a statement necklace.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I think consignment is one of those things that ends up being completely addictive once you get into it. If you haven’t already visited a consignment shop, I highly recommend it. Consignment is a good way to obtain high quality clothes at affordable prices. At one of my favorite shops, I found this Cynthia Steffe dress with the tags still attached and never worn! Here are my tips for finding a good consignment shop, as that makes a big difference when looking for a good shop:
-Do your research: look for reviews online on Yelp or Google reviews
-Check the price point of the shop: is it a high end shop with high prices? Or a high quality shop with reasonable prices?
-Look for shops that are slightly outside the city center: downtown shops tend to have the highest prices
-Ask friends where they shop and/or where they consign
-Consider consigning clothes you no longer wear and be sure to research whether you can obtain shopping credits for clothes you consign
2) As always, consider transitioning your summer dresses into fall and winter. This was another dress that I was not sure would transition well. However, once I added the booties and blazer, I realized it was a great dress to transition.
Here’s how I wore it a few months ago during summer…
For winter, I plan to add black textured tights to transition this dress into another season.
Anyone else still enjoying transitional looks this fall?
Happy weekend, readers! Almost time for the work week to begin again…stay tuned for more work looks for less!
