yes, on the toes of yesterday’s post about tomboy style, i am totally wearing a girly, lacy vintage dress with a bow on it. (though i did balance out the femininity with a sturdy hat and loafers…) but when i laid my eyes on this amazing vintage dress at tender vintage, i knew it had to be mine. it’s a shift dress, but it’s the perfect type of shift because it has darts at the bust and it subtly narrows at the waist before flaring out to a slight a-line skirt. that care for details is what takes a dress that could easily veer into maternity territory from frumpy to a very sassy little number indeed. and it’s exactly the type of detail that i look for when i’m shopping for a little mod dress.
and while i was waiting for this darling dress in the mail, i happened upon a photo of mia farrow wearing a slightly similar dress with a cute little topper, and that’s how this particular look was born. it’s my very best “pilgrim chic.” well, maybe it comes in second to my psychedelic pilgrim look from last year!
