EBEW Floral

dress: Vintage Gump's
cardigan: Target
necklace: Crossroads
shoes: BCBG from Nordstrom Rack

I have been wearing a ton of floral the past week or so. Like every day. Many have not made it online but I will have to do a post devoted exclusively to the floral I have been obsessed with.
Today is the Everybody Everywear floral challenge. I decided to wear a new vintage dress that I splurged on from a resale shop down the street. It has GIANT poofy sleeves that I have temporarily cut until I can take it to the tailor to have them professionally altered. As of now I've cut the elastic off the sleeves and have the huge excess of fabric knotted under the arms. This is why I have to wear a sweater with it.
How ridiculous and awesome are these shoes? I have not worn them since a post last fall titled "Pole dancer from the Hamptons" They are too large and in charge to wear more often. Even someone who wears heels everyday could kill herself in these shoes. But they are pretty.


  1. What an awesome vintage find! I love the detail around the bottom of the dress- and the contrasting orange necklace.
    And thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog :) Comments like that make my day!!

  2. I love those shoes!!! You also scored an awesome find with that dress. I agree with Abby, the hem detail is amazing. As a matter of fact, that is what caught my attention on the EBEW blog. Cheers!

  3. thank you ladies! The detail at the bottom is just me tying a knot.
    Thanks for stopping by :)


  4. Very creative with that knot- I thought it was a bow sewed onto the dress at first! Really cute; I'll have to try it!
