Vintage Floral Dress

- Fashion, Outfits

floral vintage dress

The best kind of dresses are vintage dresses. I own about ten of them and they are my absolute favorite dresses… unique, high quality, beautiful patterns and colors, fit like a dream and make me feel special. I tend to wear them on the weekends, which is usually when I ignore taking photos for the blog, but I’d love to share more of them soon, so stay tuned!

Do you know what’s best about this vintage dress? It’s my beautiful mother’s dress that she let me borrow! I think I was supposed to give it back to her over the 4th of July, but shhh… I love it so much mom, can’t I keep it? Just kidding, guess it’s time to get back to Napa Valley to visit Betty’s Girl Napa! If you are in Napa Valley I HIGHLY recommend checking this vintage boutique out (this dress is from there)! Happy hump day!

    That is the MOST GORGEOUS Dress Rachel. I love it so very much. It is chic, girly, modern, yet has that vintage feel – I agree. The shoes are beautiful and were perfect to pair with this. You look LOVELY . One of your best dresses ever. =)

    Such a beautiful dress! It reminds me a little of an Andy Warhol painting he did.
