Nothing says Summer like a red & white gingham day dress. While trying to keep cool in last weeks grueling heatwave, this lightweight cotton frock was truly a life saver!
I scored this amazing 1950’s dress at a flea market for just $5.00! I absolutely love the details of the piece! From the embroidered flowers along the bodice, to the contrasting gingham piping along the peter pan collar! I also love that you have the option to tie a bow at the neckline, creating a small keyhole (but it was WAY too hot to be buttoned up to my neck that day, LOL).
I decided to pair my dress with my favorite pair of 1950’s cat eye sunglasses. These are made of lucite and are decorated in enamel flowers and rhinestones. I acquired these babies many moons ago on Ebay while I was still an undergrad! They are one of my most prized vintage possessions.
The fit on this dress is truly fantastic! It’s always a great feeling to find a piece that you can just slip into without needing alterations!
My little carved flower earrings are vintage as well, a steal at $1.00 🙂
Until next time, Dolls!
