Vintage Dress In Action

One vintage burnt orange dress, one pair of creamy blue glasses, one set of bright red lips.

I got this dress at a pop-up shop near a coffee shop I frequent. It was made for me. The lace is the most amazing burnt orange and it fits me perfectly. I find that vintage dresses can easily come off a bit matronly, the cut is longer and goes down to my shins, some other dresses are baggy or have unique shapes. My experience is that to combat this feeling, it is important to keep the rest of the look fresh and bright. The green glasses and red lips are bright and fresh and make a dress that could look stuffy or dated seem updated.

As for the shoes… I didn’t have any on. I usually wear some simple flats but a nice pair of bright red heels would look really incredible with this one.

Yeah, so sometimes I like to feel fly.
