I don't normally wear green, but when I do, it's vintage and flowery.
I found this gem for 15 bucks at The Factory in Fairfax this weekend and when I tried it on, it was just too perfect. Maybe a little large around the waist, but nothing that an old belt can't fix. A belt that matches the dress perfectly, might I add.
I got a lot of comments on this dress when I wore it to work, ranging from being like a 1950s housewife to looking like a garden. Which, all things considered, I suppose aren't bad things to resemble. One person even acted like there was a bee near me, which of course made me shriek a little. You know, because of the flowers. Get it?
It was a lovely day yesterday with way less heat and humidity than I complained about in my style funk post. Since my poor feet weren't going to sweat profusely, I decided to pair this 1950s fabulousness with something Barbie would wear: pretty pink pumps.
These were a wonderful find at Buffalo Exchange on U Street several weeks ago. At 14 bucks, they are everything a cheap pair of shoes should be: cute and uncomfortable.
Despite the lack of humidity, my bangs were a tad bit wonky but I attributed it to the bouffant look I was going for with the hair. The flippier the better, I always say.
