Today's post features a #thriftstorescore , a vintage color block dress with a twist! The quality and durability of vintage pieces never cease to amaze me. This is one of the main reasons I'm always on the hunt for a #thriftstorescore (see more here) !
I would say that this dress looks to be late 70s/early 80s ,yet every detail remains fantastically intact. I particularly like that the color blocking design is done on a diagonal, with a slant.
The ruching on the shoulders adds such femininity to the dress as a whole.
Now this was made before the time of faux-wrap designs, so guess what? When the wind blows, you are exposed- LOL! To combat embarrassment I wear a nude colored slip underneath :)
I paired it with gold because I had a hankering to carry my vintage gold handbag, scored during a recent trip to Vegas.
Am I the only one who has hankerings to wear and or carry certain things even when there are more suitable options available?! I have rose gold colored accessories which would have been a perfect match, but I simply didn't want to wear them...
I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments below!
Have a great day, and 'Until next time'!
