Back in April, I got to participate in my first Dapper Day…at home. They’re back this weekend with the fall event, and I figured, why not dress up again? This time, I went with my Miss Candyfloss dress, a Splendette duchess bangles stack, an Erstwilder brooch (the one hint of Christmas in my outfit!), gloves from Unique Vintage, and a necklace and handbag from Talbots. Oh, and my very favorite hat!
I’m really happy I got to participate in these events this year, because even pre-pandemic, Dapper Day wasn’t something I thought I’d get to do. After this whole mess is over, though, I kind of hope I might get to attend an in-park event someday!
Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted a Miss Candyfloss dress?!? I have long admired their vintage cuts, but I have been reluctant to order, because the company is based in Sweden, and I was worried about how their clothes fit, and how much of a hassle a return would be if it didn’t.
Enter Unique Vintage, who recently had the Tamrika swing dress available in my size on their website. Ordering from a California-based store is way less intimidating than ordering from overseas, so I figured I didn’t have much to lose. In the end, I needn’t have worried, because it fit perfectly!
I decided to go with simple black, pink, and grey accessories, including a hat that I haven’t worn for a long time due to lack of coordinating outfits. Also, isn’t the collar of the dress cool?!?
I love the material the skirt is made out of…it’s a very soft flannel…perfect for winter!
I’m glad I was finally able to purchase a Miss Candyfloss dress, and now that I’m familiar with the fit, maybe someday, I’ll even order a style directly from the company!
