When I went to NYC for the blogger meet-up I had to pack all of my clothing for five days into one carry-on. This 1950’s vintage dress didn’t make the cut.
The reason? It’s just not WOW enough. Yes, I was seduced by the 100 % cotton, the pleat detailing at the chest (sadly you can’t really see this in the photos) and the tiny blue Forget-me-nots in the pattern. Those are all wonderful details and why I simply had to have the dress even if it wasn’t my “usual colour palette”.
This dress is perfect for days when I want to be sweet, stylish and fly under the radar a bit.
For days when I’m my usual bold, brash self and want to make a memorable impression I rely on one of the other colourful dresses I took with me to NYC.
My accessories were an obvious effort to add some colour to this dress as you will rarely find me wearing white.
Next post I’m going to share another vintage outfit which I did take to NYC that is so insanely BOLD & BRASH you might need to shield your eyes from its blinding awesomeness.
Are you sometimes seduced into buying items you normally wouldn’t simply because it is so unique?
