I love sundress season! The Golightly is my favorite style sundress from Unique Vintage (it’s the twirliest dress I own!)…I have it in three different colors, including this beautiful blue gingham accented with pink flowers. The color combination is gorgeous, don’t you think?!? I especially love it with this pink Yemak cropped cardigan:
I accessorized with a pink fascinator, a Splendette stack of duchess bangles (including some of this season’s new duotones), an emu brooch from Erstwilder, and some lace gloves from Unique Vintage (which unfortunately got a hole the first time I wore them):
I think this is a great look for spring and summer!
I love this time of year, when you can throw a cardigan on over a sundress and have a complete look without any effort!
There’s nothing like a 1960s-style sundress, right? As hard as it is to believe, though, I had never purchased a Jenny dress from Pinup Girl Clothing, even though it’s what I would call one of their signature items. The boning in the dress, which is loved by many people, scared me. But then I saw this lovely crepe version of the dress, which has no boning, and I knew I had to try it! And the color and Spanish fans print are amazing!
I can definitely see why this dress is so popular! It’s so light and easy to wear and has a great twirl factor.
I kept the accessories simple…my standard pearls, a yellow belt and Yemak cropped cardigan, a beautiful Splendette duchess bangle, my favorite penguin brooch, and gloves.
I love the colors of this look so much!
Now that I’ve tried a Jenny dress, I’d like to add more to my wardrobe…I’m still pretty reluctant to try a version with boning, though!
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!
