Double Breasted Teal Fun

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Dress, vintage label says "Nipon" from Time Warp Boutique; Sweater, Mossimo at Target; Belt; pulled from a skirt; Boots; Steve Madden; Earrings, Forever 21; Bracelet, a gift; Pinky Ring, Charming Charlie; Tights, Target.
Nail Color: "Haute Red" by Orly
Today's Weather: High 76º, Low 58ºF. Wet, cloudy, dull.

I didn't bother with a bag today because I have pockets! A while ago I got this dress from a vintage shop here in town called Time Warp. They have all sorts of fun vintage clothing, accessories, and home goods. I had to stop going so often since I could have easily signed over my paychecks to them. I don't wear much retro or vintage clothing but when I do I like to shop there. This particular dress is from the 1980s and is a throwback to the 1940s. It has an interesting closure system which is what attracted me to it in the first place, that and the velvet buttons and collar. The gathers and pleats at the waist make me smile too which helped brighten up this rather dull day. The fit is like most clothing on me, the waist is too high, but it isn't too bothersome.

Until next time,
