the look of love













cardigan  vintage from wasteland
dress  vintage from hollie point
petticoat  vintage
belt  thrifted
bag  vintage from flea market
heels  asos

I've been acquiring quite a few sheer 1950's dresses such as this beauty lately. There's something about that floaty, almost weightless fabric that gets me every time. This is my Summer Valentine look, the kind of outfit that makes the crustiest and creepiest men on the street pay unexpected compliments like, "Why! What a lovely vision!" Startling, but I'll take it.

P.S. The lovely Hollie Point Vintage (where I found this dress) is having a storewide 15% off sale!
