Strawberry Patch || Unique Vintage Style Society

strawberry dress

I hadn't been strawberry picking since I was a little girl (the farm we used to go to stopped offering pick-your-own strawberries years ago), but when I received this amazing strawberry print dress from Unique Vintage, I knew I'd have to find a new place to go picking! A lot of farms weren't offering picking this season – it's apparently been a particularly bad year for strawberries – but we decided to visit Gro-Moore Farms, which is about a half hour away, and we got a TON of beautiful berries... which we later enjoyed over frozen custard. ;)

I'd been wanting this delicious dress by UK brand Collectif ever since I saw it on their site, but because I've had bad sizing luck when ordering directly from them in the past, I was delighted when I saw it at Unique Vintage. One of the things I love about UV is that they have exact size charts for every garment they sell, which is incredibly helpful when certain brands don't run true to size. For instance, Collectif is a brand that tends to run very large (for reference, another dress I own of theirs is a size small  – with room to spare – and I'm never a size small!), so I was very grateful for the size chart Unique Vintage provided. I probably could've sized down to a small in this dress as well, given the fact that the elasticized back provides a lot of stretch, but the medium works just fine. The coolest thing about this dress is that it can also be worn multiple ways! You can wear the bust wings down like I did, or wear them up for a full print dress; the straps are convertible and can be worn halter style or in a criss-cross fashion, or you can remove them completely to make a strapless dress! I think this dress needs a fuller petticoat, but that wasn't exactly a practical option for traipsing through a field, so I'm going to wear it a completely different way next time. I love pieces with built-in versatility! For more vintage dresses, check out Unique Vintage's website!

Have a sweet start to your week!


  1. You have some lovely dresses!!! I love the strawberry theme and I definitely think you need one of those baskets as a handbag!x

  2. Very pretty! I love the idea of going strawberry picking in a strawberry print dress, I'm sure everyone who saw you had to smile. And those berries look absolutely delicious!

  3. I love that you dressed up in strawberries to go strawberry picking! The outfit is so cute, and you look amazing in it. I used to love going strawberry picking, but it's been years since I last went. xx

  4. Wow I love that dress and looks amazing on you! Such wonderful photos of you in that strawberry field as well! xo :)

  5. Super cute! I spotted this on UV and loved it - didn't know it could be changed up so much with the straps and details! That makes it even cuter!

  6. Oh my word, I NEED that dress in my life (and closet). Strawberries are my favourite fruit to depict in wearable form (and my second fave berry in edible form :)) and this frock has just the right blend of sweetness and glamour. What an awesome piece - that looks fantastic on you!

  7. I missed strawberry season this year. The closest farm by my house only had blueberries now and that just doesn't seem as fun for some reason

  8. I love this, especially that it is convertible into other necklines and styles! The necklace is a great crowning touch
