Day 2 of wearing my favorite vintagey frocks. I found this piece lingering in a back corner in an antique shop a few months ago. I was immediately drawn to the awesome geometric print and the adorable tie neck. I was even more amazed to discover it was a Victor Costa piece and it was in perfect condition!
I always pick up tops with a similar shape with the cute little pussybow tie but they never ever work for me. I think it's mostly due to the fact that they are 80s reincarnations and typically have crazy huge 80s shoulder pads. When this one fit perfectly (as much as I could tell over the outfit I wore that day), I had to bring it home with me.
The best part is that it is this space-age polyester blend that feels waterproof and repels stains. Too bad I found this out by spilling numerous sauces on it throughout the day. Fortunately, it moves more like silk or rayon (which are my more preferred dress fabrics).
I feel like a secret spy/secretary/flight attendant in this getup! Dressing up as a different character each day is my favorite activity. I keep waiting for it to warm up this week so I can wear my summery pieces and stage a picnic.
