I wore almost this exact outfit about a year ago for a Thanksgiving-themed post. But it is just to delicate and fun not to shoot again. Plus the vintage lace tablecloths and cracked teacups at the Wonderland Garden I wrote about earlier this week literally screamed this dress to me.
My friend Kathy (queen mother of vintage) did an amazing interview with About.com (read it here) about vintage shopping. Every time I see this girl she is wearing some amazing piece, and when I gush over it she inevitably responds “Oh this was $3!” What I liked most about the interview was when she talked about being unafraid to wear shapes and cuts that are not necessarily modern. A lot of women shy away from experimenting with styles that are not current, but there is definitely something to be said for the mystery of a vintage cut. This is probably one of my most modest dresses, but the elegant and timeless shape, to me, is one of the sexiest things about it.
Sure, I am not exactly a fan of some older shapes on my body, (mom jeans and shoulder pads, for example) but don’t be afraid to try things just because they don’t fit the modern mold on first glance. You may discover one of your most unique and most loved pieces!
