Precious in Pale Yellow




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!

  1. That dress is so lovely! And your photos are beautiful. They look like they could be in a magazine editorial, with the lighting and the contrast of the urban setting and the soft feminine dress. I really like it with the brown shoes/belt pairing. It's very sweet. :)

  2. Oh wow, loving the shots. #6 is great, the contrast with the stone, you and the beautiful building behind is really lovely and the gorgeous light.

    I love #11, the dress and you of course look great, the building and the trees on the upward angle behind just makes it look a bit mysterious. Great photo!

    Sounds like you had a dreamy day,

    The button is so sweet and the shoes and belt complement the outfit I think.

  10. It's such a lovely dress and you look so beautiful. You remind me of someone from the '40s--in particular, a French woman from the '40s with the hair and the cut of the dress. So lush.

  14. Lovely dress! Really like the collar and the color especially. I tend to stay away from yellow, think it doesn't go well with my skin tone. But I love the way it looks and I think knowing I can't wear it makes me want it more :) Also, the shoes are great. Are they really comfy as the name would have us believe?

    Wishing you a great new week Kelley♥
