Victor Costa

There's just something so magical about vintage dresses- the fabric, the cut, and silhouette, it's hard to find that sort of charm in modern day dresses. I love collecting flirty, girly dresses (as you can probably tell from reading my blog) and this Victor Costa piece is no exception!
I found this Victor Costa dress at Shareen Vintage! It's made of cotton poplin which will be perfect for those hot days during summer vacation. I wore it with Chloe bow sandals, vintage ring, and Clara Kasavina swarovski ring.

It looks quite big around the boobs... But other than that... What a marveloussss dress.
And too bad of the ankle strap shoes, with these dresses lenght you need to wear pumps, not ankle straps. My opinion though.

Wish we could see a close up of the rings.
