What I'm Wearing




dress: vintage (Zap & Co., Lancaster, PA)
purse: vintage (Salvation Army, PA)
shoes: vintage (Slow on Melrose, Los Angeles, CA)
sunglasses: vintage (Root's Market, PA)

There's a lovely vintage store in town called Zap & Co. that I go into frequently. I always browse through the racks but have never found anything to take home with me. Most of the clothes are quite old, from the 20's, 30's and 40's, and too delicate for everyday sort of wear. The last time I went in, I saw this dress and my heart skipped a beat. It nearly jumped off the rack and into my hands. Luckily it fits like a charm. I think I'm in love!

I love the asymmetrical buttons and the checkered pattern. Great find!

The style of your "what I wore" pictures is really nice btw. They have a really nostalgic quality. :)

Loving the way the buttons were crafted onto the dress. And the pattern is so quaint!

Cammila said...

That's very beautiful. If you don't mind my asking, what is the fabric like?

Sally Jane said...

Thanks for all of the lovely comments!

Cammila: There is no tag on the dress (it's home sewn if you can believe it!) but if feels like a rayon fabric.

Sally Jane said...

I use a Canon Powershot SD 1000 (it's just a snapshot camera) and Photoshop. Thanks!
