What’s new, guys? I’ve recently decided to hit some of our older locations and scout out new favorites that eluded me. I started this off by returning to Lizard Thicket, here in Columbus! I’ve spent a few days scouring their website to try to link you to the styles. Sadly, I wasn’t able to actually find anything online that I found.
Let’s get this show on the road with these four styles that I was enamored with!
Pool Party Prep!
One of the first things I gravitated towards was this adorable Gingham wrap dress. I was a little worried about the front, because historically, I’m terrible with anything that wraps. Imagine my joy on finding that the dress zips up the back.
The fabric was nice and formfitting, with just a touch of texture that was more evident on my back. I really like the cut of this particular item. The little ruffles give it an air of cute femininity that just makes this the perfect item to be paired with some straw accessories.
I’m feeling a straw bag, nothing seriously huge, but something small and portable like this, from Urban Outfitters. Since this is a perfect outfit for a day by the pool, you don’t want to forget your straw hat! This is a great dress to really lean into that summer aesthetic. I’ll go ahead and do a preview on some stylish summer accessories below! You can click those images below to visit the website!
School Day Vibes!
This second style was a modest over-all dress, which is something I’m crazy about lately. These styles are just absolutely adorable and versatile and work well with stripes underneath or even a graphic tee. The closest I could find to this exact one is this, I paired it with this adorable crop top.
This sort of thing always strikes me as school-clothes, probably in no small part because it was my favorite uniform when I was a child. Or at least close it- this is in a somewhat similar vein. Maybe that’s why I’m still insane about anything that looks like School Uniforms.
I really like the idea of leaning into the academic feeling with this style. I’m talking backpack purse, hi-socks and sneakers. In fact, might change the shirt for that… I’m feeling this one to lend a little more modesty to the look. Some accessories that I like with this are below!
Aim for the Stars!
The last time I went to Lizard Thicket I found this dress- at the time, it was a size too small and wouldn’t fit properly. I’m thrilled that I found it in my size this time (though truth be told, may still be a touch form fitting).

I love this dress. It’s so shiny and seems great for all of the exorbitant partying I… don’t do. In any event, I can see this as being a lively dress for a night out on the town with the girls or even a casual date night.
Maybe I want to lean into the sparkly bits too much, but I’m not sure if I’m feeling silver or gold for accessories. You know what? Gold. We have to break up that silver with some contrast. For this dress, I mostly stuck with the Lizard Thicket’s website to aid in finding accessories, since I like to roam around the internet on my search.
I found a variant in this dress, it was absolutely adorable. The one I came across was yellow but was similar in every other way. I loved it. But to my sorrow, it didn’t fit me. I really, really wish I could find it on the site but it does seem to be missing some direct links in their catalog.
It would have been so fun to accessorize it with a lace and floral patterns, but I feel like any accessorization that I do would fall short in this case.
