Sartorial Saturday–Sundress Season

It’s sundress season, right?

Actually, looking at the extended forecast, I think it’s actually stay out of the sun and in the air conditioning season, but that’s really all I’ve been doing this summer anyway, so I digress…

Anyway, I looked at my first Unique Vintage Golightly dress in the spring, and now I’m back with a different print, and this time, I even removed the straps for a slightly different look!

I’m a huge fan of gingham, plus this is the world’s twirliest dress, so it’s perfect!

I’m also a huge fan of purple, and I love any reason to wear my purple Splendette Duchess bangles, even if they’re not quite the right shade to go with the dress!

I really hope that someday, I’ll get to wear this dress to a fun summer event!

Sartorial Saturday–Golightly

Time for another edition of “all dressed up and nowhere to go!”

I’ve wanted a Unique Vintage Golightly dress for a long time. I’ve admired various prints and patterns over the last few years, and finally was unable to resist when I saw this blue and white gingham with roses version, especially since I bought it during a major sale!

I also couldn’t resist these cat-eye sunglasses from Unique Vintage…they coordinate perfectly, as do my Splendette Duchess bangles stack and beads.

This is a great summer sundress. It’s light and airy, and the skirt has an incredible twirl. It’s the kind of dress you want to wear on a picnic or to a garden. The one drawback is that, because the fabric is so light, it is sheer, and in addition to the obvious potential for backlighting issues, in places where it’s layered with one of the roses on the inside, they kind of show through, making it look almost stained. But that’s a minor issue, and it’s such a fun dress, I can overlook it!

I’m waiting on the arrival of my second Golightly dress in an even more delightful pattern…I can’t wait to share it, too!
