Outfit: Vintage in The Suburbs

But I’ve been quite lucky a few times, eyeing a dress that I thought was really special and then having it fit like a glove. Such was the case with this 60s beauty. When I received it from The Wanderly it fit absolutely perfectly and made me feel really awesome…the kind of dress that seemed destined for me. Ya, it’s one of those dresses and I’m pretty happy it has come into my life. It had been awhile since I had found a fun vintage dress to add to my ridiculous collection, so it was due time I came across something exceptional. I’m just sad I didn’t find it earlier in the season. It feels as though Fall is on the approach, and while I try to wear most of my clothes year round, there are certain pieces that feel way too Summer-y to be worn when it’s cold…this bb being one of them. I guess if you spy me in real life, you might just catch me wearing this dress almost daily till the leaves are on the ground.

Rain Rain…

The weekend’s weather was rather shit, which was a bit disappointing but probably for the best as Ryan and I were able to reorganize some things in our apartment (I feel like I’m always saying that, but its ALWAYS a work in progress) and I got caught up on some much needed rest (youtube subscriptions). We did manage to pop out for a bit when the rain wasn’t so intense to snap these photos, and I figured I’d fight the dreary weather with a somewhat bright and psychedelic outfit. This vest actually comes from a set and it’s matching friend is in the form of a white drop waist button up collared dress with matching psychedelic pattern on the skirt. I’ll have to show you the full set one day, but for now you just get the vest. I’m not sure why I never thought to pair it with something outside of it’s designated dress friend until yesterday, but maybe it’s because I don’t own that many solid colored skirts and it’s obviously not a very ideal pattern to pair with another pattern. Although, that seems like a personal styling test of some sort and I think I’m up for the challenge.

How was your weekend friends? I feel like you’ve been a bit quiet lately, not sure why, but I would love to hear from you!
