Vintage Wednesday #17

Today for Vintage Wednesday I'd like to share another favorite dress of mine. This is one of my favorite dresses to wear in the winter because of the shockingly bright colors. The end of winter is always so dull and grey, so I say why not dress up as bright as possible? I always get a ton of compliments when I wear this dress, but at the same time I get just as many "what is she wearing?!" stares. I love it. I have to admit that sometimes I get a small thrill from turning heads with my outfits. Not in a conceited, 'ohhhh people are looking at me' way. I mean in a, 'wow this pattern has made an impact on someone today' way. I always enjoy when people come up to me and tell me what my dress reminds them of/makes them think about.

I think the dress may be handmade as it doesn't have a label on the inside.

I decided to pair the dress with my new vintage hat and a pink coat that I thirfted many years back.

Then I went on a super secret adventure down a long hallway.

And I wore some accessories.

You know what makes this dress even more amazing?

It has a flower petal collar! I love it!

During the photo shoot NES started to misbehave...

But then he just started being cute.

I hope you've enjoyed this addition of Vintage Wednesday! Check back next week for more vintage fun!

The Breakdown:


Dress: Thrifted
Coat: Thrifted
Pink Shoes: Thrifted

Hat & Belt: Ebay
Scarf & Necklace: Thrifted
Earrings: Express

P.S. The patch on the coat is a giraffe. I tried to iron the coat once and didn't realize that it was a flammable material. Instead of ironing it I managed to burn a hole in it. So I put a patch over the burn mark.
