fake summer

calivintage: fake summer

after spending last week in warm and sunny los angeles, i was kind of dreading my arrival back home in the bay area, anticipating a very chilly reception upon my return. but to my surprise, i woke up yesterday morning to the most gloriously (albeit unseasonably) warm weather in oakland. it was so hot that i decided to pretend that i was on summer vacation, and threw on this ridiculously cute tropical print dress to celebrate. perhaps this has something to do with the fact that i just got the film developed from my hawaiian vacation back in july, and i was feeling a bit nostalgic. and i suppose the stars aligned on this opportunity, considering that i bought this dress last week on a whim, wondering how many months it would be until i would actually have the chance to wear it!

dress: trashy diva trixie sarong
shoes: vintage candies from pretty penny vintage in oakland
bag: thrifted vintage woven straw tote
sunglasses: rag & bone via gilt groupe
lipstick: ysl rouge pure couture in le orange

  1. That is a great, fun dress! The hot weather here also took me by surprise yesterday and I was wearing jeans and mid-calf boots because I hadn’t left the house all day and didn’t realize that it was so warm.

    1. i have been meaning to write more about those kinds of details! i actually have a bunch of new lip colors, too! i will have to write a post about all of my favorites!

      p.s. i’m wearing ysl rouge pur couture in this post!

  2. First of all, you look gorgeous in this dress! Second, I love that you did this post because it’s always summer here in SoCal, except for like that one day of rain, so I’m inspired to embrace it now :)
