$4 Tunic Dress...With Pockets
Another of my thrift spoils from my recent trip back home to the U.S. I found this piece in with the dresses, and immediately saw it working as a empire-waisted tunic over jeans, as I am wearing it here. I do believe it would actually make a lovely dress as well (in fact it is likely actually a dress), but on my 5'10" frame, this would likely be more gynaecological than chic. Not to put too fine a point on it.
My love for tunics is by now, well documented. This one spoke to me immediately because it has these rectangular crystals on the trim of the zipper, shoulders, and pockets that is heavily reminiscent of the Valentio Rockstud shoes and accessories which are out in force right now, and in my opinion, highly covetable (let's hope this four dollar tunic scratches that itch once and for all).
I paired this tunic with my fifteen dollar booties (same trip, different thrift shop), a pair of workhorse skinnies, and minimal accessories as to not compete with tunic's inherent bling. And best of all? Pockets. It has pockets. Ladies, we LOVE pockets in everything from dresses to tunics and beyond, do we not? It is a mystery to me why more manufacturers do not put pockets in everything. If there were pockets in my underpants, I would totally find a use for them. So clothing designers and manufacturers, hear this. Give us pockets, or give us death. Sure, I am prone to fits of exaggeration, but on this point, I am unwavering in my resolve.
