Whatcha Wearing?
Vintage dress available here in my Style.ly boutique
Shoes from Payless (Isabel Toledo)
Whistle necklace & bracelet from Day-Lab

This was my first time trying this dress on, and after doing so it's hard to keep it for sale in my shop! It's so great for summer and will transition seamlessly into fall with some boots and a cardigan or jacket. 

You may have noticed that I regularly mention a place called Day-Lab in my outfit listings. It was this amazing online store that sold vintage, often times deadstock, jewelry. Notice that I write "was". It closed down a while back, which was a huge distress after a large portion of my collection was stolen a couple years ago. Amy really found the best stuff, and it was always very reasonably priced. I was a frequent customer! Luckily my most prized pieces were with me when my apartment was robbed, so all wasn't lost. Although once you lose a piece of vintage jewelry, odds are you aren't going to be able to replace it...


  1. You find the best pieces.

    That's terrible to hear about your robbery :( yuck!

    1. Worst part is, I've been robbed more than once! It really teaches you that all your "stuff" isn't all that important.

    2. WOW! I'm so sorry! I guess it does make you realize the importance of non-material things! But twice???? May you experience NO more bad luck!

  2. Cute dress, I like that you paired it with neutral colored shoes.

    1. Yeah, there's a lot going on with the pattern, so I thought neutral was the way to go :)
