pearls n' curls

dress, jewelry & bag: vintage, shoes: MK, sunglasses: Dior

I'm finally tan enough to wear this dress! First off, I've randomly concluded the previous owner was a grandma. I don't know why but I'm sure of it. When I found this dress I immediately saw Chanel influences from the pearl button details to the sheer sleeves and shoulder pads. I love the sheer cutouts on the back of the dress too. I haven't worn this yet because I thought it was too long/big and wanted to cut it shorter but decided it fits well oversized. Posing for pictures can show off clothes but action shots can show how well the clothes actually move with the body. I love flowy pieces that move with you while walking...always the most comfortable too.

I would think that dress came from a grandma, too, but my god it's still so elegant. And your toned, tanned legs makes me want to hit the beach and go running.

yeah lol, if I'm not wearing plain old black, white and gray, its probably pink! Actually, I was born in NYC but after Atlanta, we moved to a smaller NY town, which is great because other than she shopping, I actually hate the big city lol. Are you a city girl?

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

Gorgeous dress Silvia. Gorgeous, and with the body you have, you are not doing yourself justice.
Take this dress to an tailor, and have it altered in the hips and waist. It should fit you like a glove, love the hair. Cheap like $15, you won't believe the difference!

jemina said...
