I love this dress. The best word for it is probably precious. The peter pan collar, lacy details and little buttons decorated with gold swirls...along with the color....have made it one of my recent favorite finds. I wasn't sure if the color suited me or not, but couldn't help but snap it up a few weeks ago when I spotted it in one of my favorite vintage stores. Today was the first time I've worn it, and I initially thought about pairing it with white t-straps and a white bag, but decided instead to go with the dark brown shoes and belt. I guess I wasn't feeling all that precious this morning:)
The breezy, breathable cotton fabric of this frock was perfect for a warm afternoon of thrifting and walking around the city, then coming home for some cooking, photos and hemming while I finished An American in Paris. I hope everyone else is having a wonderful holiday weekend as well!
