Outfit: Bring Me Your Loves

Last week, Capsule Vintage was having a sale, and I immediately scooped up this sweet ’60s number.  I have absolutely no other orange clothing in my closet, which makes this dress seem like a brilliant flash of sunshine every time I open the door.  I wanted to have some fun with this shoot, so I even dug out my trusty ol’ petticoat for some extra oomph.

And while taking pictures was fun, I had kind of a strange feeling afterward.  I had to go to the store, and I felt so awkward clipping down the Walgreens aisles in my poofy dress and milkmaid braids.  I guess that’s a natural enough reaction, but man, 15-year-old me would be disappointed.

I miss the attitude I had toward clothing as a teenager.  Caring about what my classmates thought about my bustle dresses, corsets, and parasols simply wasn’t at the top of my list.  I was happy to swan about the hallways looking like a mixed-up Victorian dandy.

As I grew older, though, I decided to move in a different direction, and now I feel like I’ve struck a good balance–my look is more or less vintage-inspired, but old-fashioned duds don’t overwhelm me.  Still, there are days I wish I could still pull off a sunny ’60s dress while I’m refilling my prescriptions…

    1. Thank you so much! It’s definitely a lot of fun to swish around in, but I have to admit it was super hard to style! I don’t have any orange, so it took me forever to figure out what goes with that color. I’m glad you liked the end result!
