Fashion Transition – Vintage Dress

Yesterday I shared some fashion transitions with you in photos taken from an antique and vintage fair. I also mentioned that I purchased a vintage dress. Today I am going to share with you the fantastic dress I purchased from “Coutura”.

The Vintage Dress: I love this 60s number. It has a blue cotton lining and then this fantastic floral print in chiffon over the top. It’s hard to see in the pics but the skirt has a sun-ray pleats. The back of the lining zips up and the chiffon buttons which causes a nice blousing effect on top. It was the bright blue and green that first attracted me to the dress. I think if I wore a belt with it that my waist might look smaller but it’s really comfortable the way it is.

And for some reason a great vintage dress makes me think cocktails are the perfect accessory! However, I also found using some modern bracelets, and a vintage mesh handbag made great accessories for this look. You may have noticed I also opted for my green snake/lizard skin shoes with the ankle wrap for a little more vintage glam.

No, I haven’t had too many cocktails, I am just melting in the heat!

Cheers to a fashionable find!

Luckily the flowers on the dress and the dress itself can hold up to the heat! I’m positively melting! Other accessories for this look are a pair of green and purple jade earrings purchased in Hong Kong a couple of years ago and a double strand of crystal beads that belonged to my grandmother, which were probably fashionable even before the dress was made.

This vintage dress certainly works well with my fashion transition that covers each decade from the 50s to now! I really do love being able to mix fantastic vintage finds into my wardrobe. They add so much style.

What do you think? Does my new vintage dress make the fashion transition from days of old to style of gold?
