Dahlias + Leopard Spots || Unique Vintage Style Society

This is my second outfit post I've done as part of the Unique Vintage Style Society, and I'm a bit excited about it because this ensemble is a bit different from what I normally wear on my blog. I'd been looking for a versatile LBD that could be dressed up or down, and this black dress definitely fits the bill. I normally look for a longer hemline, but I like that this dress can transition through the seasons and isn't pigeonholed into one particular style. I opted to wear it with a new-to-me cardigan, dahlia hair flower and my Melissa jelly wedges, but I can already envision 20 other ways to remix this dress. I actually enjoyed the fact that this outfit is a bit more casual and practical than what I usually pick; it's refreshing to venture outside your comfort zone every now and then! From retro clothing to classic LBDs, Unique Vintage always has such great options.

I had the hardest time coming up with a title for this post. Normally, post titles come to me pretty quickly (sometimes I even think of them when I'm taking the photos), but this one had me stumped. Full credit goes to Amanda on this one. Aside from the #iamunique Style Society, I'm very lucky to have been a part of several little "societies" of bloggers I adore. It's been such fun to be a part of Flock Together (sadly, that blog will likely be shutting down in the near future), and I'm really grateful for my little girl gang of bloggers. We talk constantly, and it's kind of magical how deeply you can connect with people you've never meet in real life. As irritating as the internet can be at times, I'm still in awe of the sense of community and connection it can provide.

  7. This is such a cute combo! I love red + leopard it's such a classic retro look that I never think to pair up together! You look adorable and this is exactly what I think of blogging. It's really nice to have a community of ladies that do what you do and have an appreciation for style and all that comes with blogging.
