Half Dazed

A while back I took a trip to one of my favorite vintage boutiques and one of the co-owners brought this crop top dress to my fitting room while I was trying on other vintage frocks. I love it so much, but it's been sitting in my closet since forever. I finally wore it and it's definitely become one of my favorite dresses! Perfect for sunny weather...
It has an open back...
Old bracelet from an antique shop and a collar necklace worn as a bracelet.
Also wearing a new pair of Gucci wooden platforms... these are really comfortable!
