Coral Hued

Can you believe that the month of June is here?! I am in disbelief!! 2014 is halfway over! Time is flying by so fast, that honestly I can barely keep up. Nonetheless, as the saying goes: 'The show must go on.'
Today's post features a vintage number that I altered myself. Sometimes I spot vintage pieces that I like, yet they have a "but" factor. What do I mean? Well, it's when you see a dress or skirt, etc.,. while shopping and you say/think: "I like that, but...". For this dress I thought: "I like it, but I'm not feeling the sleeves." Nonetheless I purchased it, and eventually cut off the sheer sleeves. TIP: When vintage shopping, I find it best to think outside the box as much as possible.
This dress is a classic a-line silhouette, and drapes effortlessly.
I decided to wear this handmade vintage clutch with it, because let's face it- it was the right thing to do! LOL! Seriously, the embroidery is meticulously done, and the color of the flower is almost an exact match.
Now these shoes were actually on their way to my donate pile, when I realized that they were an exact match to the color of this dress. I'm not that crazy about wedge style shoes anymore, and I've noticed that I've been slowly removing them from my wardrobe.
All in all, I was pleased with the completed look, and I decided that I'll hang on to this pair of wedges for a little bit longer ;)

Sunnies: Vintage
Earrings: H&M
Dress: Vintage
Clutch: Vintage
Wedge Sandals: Seychelles

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. LOL! Would you believe that my hubby has said that I should steer clear of DIY? LOL! As for wedges, I love them on others, but not so much on me :O
      Thanks Neti!

  4. I am all about coral right now. It's such a fresh, punchy, juicy color. I love that you went for an all-coral ensemble. The embroidered bag is my favorite touch!
