Painting the roses red

rose print dress

I think this dress from Unique Vintage has the best rose print I've ever seen. It's so romantic, and I love the classic silhouette. It'd make a perfect Valentine's Day dress, but since there are still some roses in bloom, I decided to take a trip to the Maplewood Rose Garden here in Rochester. It's sort of a strange place for a rose garden (it's surrounded by department stores and located near an iffy area of the city), but it does provide a sense of serenity and escape. Weirdly, I've seen at least four other bloggers who had the same rose garden post idea around the same time... but since I had a backlog of outfits, I've been sitting on these photos for about a week.

I'm in complete denial that July is nearly over. What happened to summer?? I'm determined to get as much out of this last month as I possibly can. I have a couple of little trips planned (you'll hear more about those soon), and I still have to cram in some other things on my summer to-do list, like going to the beach, an amusement park, and the Renaissance Faire! I did manage cross one big thing off my to-do list this week – we did a big overhaul of my room and did some redecorating, with which I'm very pleased. I'm hoping that now it'll look nice enough to use as a photo backdrop for the colder months.

Do you have any plans for the rest of the summer?


  1. Pretty as roses indeed! You look absolutely stunning in this color scheme and I am so jealous of the sunshine!

  2. Can you just come hang out with my in my grandma's parlor in this dress? I'll provide the tea and snacks. Kthanks. (seriously, look at the photo, you'd fit in perfectly).

  3. That dress is so beautiful, and it looks amazing on you! :)

  4. Zero arguments there. It is really and truly one of the most gorgeous rose prints I've ever seen. I had a dress in the late 90s that was a very different fabric, but surprisingly similar rose print. It was more 90s than vintage looking, but I would still wear it if I had it (I don't - I wore it into the ground!).

    Have a great Thursday, dear gal!
