This endless winter has really been getting me down, but I came up with a fun little way to escape the 0° weather!  I knew I didn't want to take photos of this beautiful Lady Vintage dress in my frozen tundra of a backyard, so I was racking my brain trying to come up with an alternative... and then I remembered this little conservatory in one of Rochester's larger parks!  My best friend Wayne came with me for this little adventure, and it was so rejuvenating to spend an hour in a faux tropical oasis!  Hopefully it'll be enough to tide me over until spring arrives.

I'm ecstatic that the timing finally worked out to collaborate with Lady Vintage on this post!  Their beautiful spring line recently arrived on their website, and they allowed me to choose this gorgeous dress to review.  I'd never been particularly drawn to orange before, but when I saw this dress, I fell in love!  The colors are so saturated and scrumptious.  I really love this particular cut, and though I opted to wear it with a thinner pettislip, it also looks great with a fuller petticoat.  I found this dress to run true to size (though buyers should note that it contains no stretch), and I love the addition of the sash tie in the back -- it's a feature that definitely flatters my figure!  The fabric is fantastic quality (it feels far more expensive than it is!), and I can't wait to style this in the summer.  This particular style is a limited edition, so if you have your eye on it, I'd act fast!

  1. I'm not usually drawn to orange either but this dress is amazing, the colors of the floral print are so sunny and happy! I could definitely go for a faux (or real) tropical oasis right now!

  2. WHAT a good idea! These pics were so refreshing and warm! I know how bitterly cold it's been this week! I've considered sneaking into conference rooms at work to take my outfit pics to avoid the chill! I'm just scared someone will walk in and wonder who the crazy girl is posing to her iPhone ;)

    In a Nutshell...

  3. I love this dress!!! The bright floral pattern is gorgeous. I checked out Lady Vintage, and I'm excited to see they have dresses in my size, too. The Spanish moss in the top picture looks just like home!

  4. Florals <3 I wouldn't have chosen orange but the color combo looks SO lovely together! I want it! lol

  5. This post makes me SO happy and it reminds me that it will eventually be warm again. You look amazing and I love orange on you. <3


  6. Great light at Lambert on Conservatory! (I'm guessing that's where you are.)

  8. You are giving me life with this little jolt of summery goodness. I don't generally mind winter, but I am just over it this year. I love this color scheme on you - the baby blue and orange are lovely together, and it really compliments your coloring.

  9. Ah! A perfect backdrop for your dress.

  10. Gorgeous!!! I love that tropical bloom filled setting. There's a warmth and enchantment to it that is so magnificent!
