Vintage dress and petticoat: Cricket Capers
Mint ice cream brooch: sweet and lovely
Mary Janes: estate sale store
This is, I'm sad to say, not one of my favorite outfit posts. Today's post is quite short -- an unfortunate result of not getting many good shots in this outfit. I really love the color of this dress, but it's pretty clear that it's a "1980's does '50s" reproduction (as evidenced by the shoulder pads I had to remove and the synthetic material), and it's a little too big on me. Although I love any dress that comes with a matching belt, I can't say that this dress is going to become a wardrobe staple for me. I ordered it with this dress from the same shop, and I actually anticipated liking this mint one more, but that wasn't the case. I can't decide whether I want to sell it, have it altered, or keep it as is and see if I change my mind. I did want to post it though, because I loved pairing it with my ice cream brooch, and maybe because I'm not quite ready to give up on this dress yet.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
