knit beret: vintage
tights: American Apparel
On our recent trip to New York I ended up buying two vintage dresses. One is the little brown mod shift dress with the lace ruffle collar you saw in the NY photo collage (it's still in my to-sew pile) and this is the other one. Surprisingly enough I found it at one of the many American Apparels that dot the city in their California Select vintage section. I expected to find lots of flashy 80's vintage duds but was quite pleasantly surprised at their selection. I ended up trying on four dresses and felt a bit like Goldilocks. This one's a bit too big, this one's a bit too small and this one is juuuust right. I know that every time I buy a vintage dress I say it's my new favorite dress and once again I'm declaring this my new favorite. With its brown velveteen trim and pockets on the hips, how could I not?
