Dressed Like A Girl

The skies were gray mostly all last week and after a while, it starts to affect your mood. I figured the best way to combat that was to wear a brightly-colored dress! So I wore this to grab tortilla soup and walk around the flea market with my boyfriend. 
I found this silk dress at Shareen's Vintage in Downtown LA along with many other dresses that I have yet to debut on the blog. I mentioned on Twitter the other day that I feel like I have so many really over-the-top dresses (I'm talking floor-length sweeping ruffled gowns) with no place to wear them. I guess I just love how beautiful they look hanging in my closet!
Silk dress worn with vintage belt, antique earrings, Metal Pointus ring, vintage ring, and L.A.M.B shoes.

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

It's all about the details and the little accessories. this is the look to proof it. the dress look stunning, the pink color is just fabulous with your hair and skin tone. but the belt makes it even more fabulous. the jewelry are bold and stylish at the same time. the flower earrings look so precious and rough. love the nude shoes, nude always looks good with a delicate summer/spring look

Louise said...

Pretty frock. We have grey skies here about 70% of the time, so you kind of get used to it. :-)

Christine @ Fash n Chips said...

Perfection! This is soo pretty and feminine and it has to be said as well that your hair looks absolutely amázing :)

The Search for J Street said...

Is there any chance you can post directions to this shop? I'm so confused about where it is, but I really want to go. Your dress is amazing, and you are the second blogger, I've seen mention it. Plus, I live in downtown LA so it should be close by. But between Google Maps and their website, there are 3 potential locations. One in the middle of Chinatown, one just on the outside of Chinatown, and a bit one north of Chinatown. Which one is it?

Christina of Profresh Style said...

Girl, I'm the same way. Most the time when I'm thrifting and vintage scouring, I'm not looking at the reality of the piece. I'm looking at it more as a piece of art and where I want it to hang or how I want it to look amongst certain colors in my closet. I'm all visual baby so I'm totally with you on having extravagant gowns in the closet for no real reason.

One day, I'll have an excuse to wear this 80's velvet floor-length dress with silk origami sleeves and a big ass bow on the ass. Yes, I'll find an occasion.

You look so amazingly well put together! I work in an engineering office of mainly older men, the majority of whom do not see fashion or style just practicality and steel toes. You've definitely inspired me to bring more sweet and feminine dresses to the dreary workplace and I am so grateful!

You have such an amazing eye for fashion, and are stunningly beautiful in all of your photos... but sometimes I find the way the photos are edited to be rather off-putting! They sometimes have this blurry/airbrushed quality... that obscures rather than enhances. It's just something you might want to look into. Peace.
