Albert Nipon

Lately I've found myself dressing up in denim and blazers, so yesterday I thought I'd switch it up and wear an Albert Nipon dress that has been sitting in my closet for a while now. Never thought I'd actually wear it as I was somewhat doubtful when I purchased it, but I guess I was wrong!
Worn with vintage crystal bracelet, Tiffany's cuff, YSL clutch, and J.crew belt.

Nippon was the best thing to come out of Philly fashion-wise maybe ever. Always perfect tailoring and really classy. I think he's under-rated in the vintage fashion world.

That print is adorable, and, as always, the styling is just perfect. I'm also super jealous that you can rock that hair cut. I've gotten similar cuts a few times before, but it never looks just right.

I used to love your blog so much and frequent it for clothing inspiration. Now I need to refer my mother to your page. You dress so dated. You're younger than I am but you seem much more like an old lady than a young one. Your choice in shoes is also very poor. Pointy shoes is very 2005, yet you still wear them like they're flattering? Please be more youthful. This look is terrible.

Susana said...

Oh, the white peter pan collar and white turned sleeves...perfection! You have great taste and style, and your modern pixie combined with the classic feel of the dress makes it a very elegant combination. Adorable!
