— What I wore…
Sunglasses: River Island Necklace: Camden Market Dress: Vintage Ring: Dechoes Shoes: Ann Taylor Bag: Louis Vuitton (Speedy 30) — Musical Inspiration: “Dying to Start Again” –Lovelife —
This adorable brown and white striped dress is from my favorite Vintage store in LA. Which, by the way, says a LOT considering Los Angeles has quite possibly THE best vintage shops in the world. It is a seriously booming business there. But no store has personally brought me more luck than “American Vintage”. They have locations on Melrose Avenue and in Fullerton, CA where this dress was purchased.
In keeping with the vintage feel of the dress I kept the shoes demure, choosing a nude slingback pump with a bow detail at the toe. The necklace was very affordable (12 pounds in Camden Market in England) and came with the lace bow already attached to three strands of pearls. So sweet! It works with so many outfits I already have in my closet but for this one it really upped the feminine “ante”, if you will.
I wore this girly little number to church but wouldn’t it be great for a Spring/Summer wedding? Fancy but not over the top. Plus the ponytail (with a simple pearl stretch bracelet worn around it) keeps the look from being too playful.
So off I go in Vintage stripes with Baby Louis (Vuitton) in tow!
