golden oldie

when i bought this dress, my friend told me that it was a grandma pattern.. in a good way. i love it. you know how i feel about vintage everything, so a dress inspired by a vintage pattern was a no brainer. although it is sleeveless, the fabric is a light flannel blend, so it is perfect for these cool march mornings.

i paired it with nude fishnets and vintage earrings to further play up the vintage charm. these earrings are also quite special... i bought them to wear in my wedding. it turned out that small pearls were best, and i wore these to the rehearsal dinner instead, but i still love them dearly. {they remind me of that wonderful weekend when i married my best friend.}

one of my favorite things about this dress is that it is work appropriate, especially when styled with a sweater, nude tights, and heels, and still fun.

what about you? would you wear a "grandma" dress?

That doesn't look like a "grandma" dress to me. You dressed it up very nicely. Love the outfit.

I am feeling this awesome print dress! I agree with June, it doesn't feel "grandma" at all (well, atleast not in a bad way)!

And the red wall is such a perfect backdrop!

You did a great job acessorizing the dress. Very nice and I agree the red backdrop enhances the outfit. I can picture myself in it wearing it to an afternoon tea party in Florence!
