If I Were a Dress.

I think I would be this one.

Dress: honeytalk vintage, Belt: Vintage (gifted to me by my aunt), Bag: Laura's Vintage,  Headband: J. Crew, Light switch: because of outfit pictures in the ladies room

When it popped up over at honeytalk vintage I snapped it up right away. I don't often do that with online, especially vintage, purchases. I'll grab something impulsively, in a heartbeat, on a whim, in store but somehow I'm really pretty considered and careful about what I spend online. I think sometimes I have a hard time visualizing how something will actually look in person no matter pictures of it I see, and I'm still working on training my eye to pick out things that I will actually love and wear. 

It's a good thing I listened to none of that and grabbed this one, because I've already worn it several times and it's only been in my possession for less than a month. Polka-dots, mini dress, with ruffles? I love it so much I could puke.

I first wore it to Courtney's birthday celebration (I snagged this picture from Emily's instagram), and then promptly threw it on with a new bag and some false eyelashes for another gal-pal's fancy cocktail-hour birthday shenanigans a week or so later. Of course, being winter I've long lost the light by the time I've gotten myself all dolled up, so this post is made up of patched-together instagrams and bathroom mirror hilarity:

For the record, I was way overdressed as per usual. In any case, I donned this entire outfit again last night for New Year's Eve. I tried several other outfits, even toted the lot of them 45 minutes out to my destination, tried them on again, before getting back into this dotted-swiss confection because that was the one that inexplicably felt the best and the most me. I should know by now that there's no fighting that feeling, sometimes an outfit just wants to be worn even if it's a repeat.

  11. So gorgeous, and fits you so well! I think we should wear things as much as possible while they're still new to us and perfect, before we've had a chance to feel not-quite-right in them. :)

  15. This dress really has everything that I associate with your style these days, and it looks pretty amazing with that shimmery belt! I also have to mention that it is out of control how beautiful you look even in potentially crummy bathroom photos. ;)

  17. It's such a dreamy dress!

    I agree that shopping for vintage online can be tricky. It's often difficult to tell how the fabric will feel, what the colors will look like, etc. I'm one of those shoppers that asks a dozen questions before making a purchase. :)
