Vintage dress and belt. Chloé shoes.

Definitely been digging the frumpy vibe as covered necklines and longer hems are the only thing I end up touching thus buying at thrift shops. The dress comes with an attached slip that is methodically well fortified. Need to somehow separate the two so I can lavish in all the striped and sheerness this dress can offer.

I also recently dyed my hair all thanks to Aimee and her hookup. I wanted to go with a more ash brown, and the hairdresser had to lighten all my hair before darkening it with the color I originally wanted. After we washed out the initial base color, dried a section of my hair, and looked at it, I decided to keep it as is. It's currently a light auburn and really light in the sun. I think I'm going to get it darkened to the original color I wanted though. I don't like talking about hair.

  27. I love your dress!!! it's so pretty and not frumpy at all. And as far as getting the lining out you should try using a seem ripper. I did that to a vintage sheer dress that had a built in slip and shoulder pads it turned out so nicely. I loved it much better with out all the bulk that the slip gave it.

  28. Are those the same platforms you wore in new york? lovee. :)


  29. Is this the dress you wore to the F21 party? Because I saw you from afar and couldn't stop staring at it. It's gorgeous and of course it's vintage! No chance of replication :P


  30. the look is so whimsical, perfect for late summer.
    it's interesting, the belt is very loud but it doesn't overpower the feminine sheer of the dress. i love it!

  31. White washed gorgeousness. The result is something out of a Grecian novel.

    Love the color of your hair. I think you should keep it as it is.

  32. you have incredible taste, glad to have found your site.
