I bought this dress because it reminded me of recent ones from Orla Kiely; 60s inspired, polka dots, a little Peter Pan collar! I usually stay away from dresses like these because they come off as a bit young for me, but I couldn't resist this one.

Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments on the video! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. It's always a bit scary putting something you've created out there for others to see, so it was very encouraging to hear all of your feedback. I hope to share more creative projects with you in the future!

Perfect dress--the lace, the collar, everything. I definitely get the Orla Kiley feel.

I was thinking the same thing about the collar, how I usually pass those by now because of how young they look, but maybe it's the neutral colors that makes it look just right!

Starr Crow said...

Um, yes! Definitely Orla Kiely inspired and adorable – but then again I love nothing more than wearing peter pan collars and dressing like a child. I agree with Anja comment about the neutrals, makes perfect sense!

You seriously find the most killer vintage around.

It's absolutely lovely Jen and it doesn't give that "too young" look at all! I'm not surprised you couldn't resist it, it suits you perfectly :)

This is such a gorgeous dress on you! And it doesn't make you look like a schoolgirl so much as it's "schoolgirl inspired"... if that makes sense. ha. You own it.
