be kind, rewind four | transcending time


blue floral dress - thrifted | leopard-print wedges - shoe etiquette | braided belt - primal rave wholesale | cutout cuff - downtown find | rings: mustache, spike and lion - downtown finds

it always feels like Christmas to me whenever i find a good condition vintage dress for a steal (say, P50?). some vintage clothes have a certain wear and tear in them and some have the obviously dated fit. this floral dress is definitely one of my favorites --- it has that old-style feel of the 50's like something my grandma wore and its material is made of a thicker chiffon with a thicker lining (not those flimsy ones you find in clothes nowadays) but the fit and style transcends time. at least i think it does. i am just such a sucker for girly dresses with a certain whimsy or frill. 

be kind, rewind details: remember a year and a half ago that i wore this dress to formo? (mind you, i stood out and was definitely misplaced -- photo below). paired it then with my Gold Dot Alfreda wedges and now i wanted to add more oomph to it by pairing it with a contrasting leopard print pair of wedges from Shoe Etiquette



how else would you style this dress? 
i'm sure there are a lot of ways and i can't wait to recycle this on more occasions.

yey for vintage dresses! at least you'll be assured you wouldn't be caught wearing the same dress with someone right next to you in the mall, right?

if that were mine, i'll wear it to the office with my sky high heels. i also love to wear it with boots but in the office i prefer pumps coz people there don't get it until now that a dress can be paired with a boots. hahahaha
