Hi there sweets,
(I think that's what I'm going to call my nonexistent subscribers! Is that weird... but you are all so gosh darn SWEET to me, even if you're nonexistent(?) Anywho, time to move on!)
Let's have a heart to heart about the Stop Staring Timeless dress in RED! I think it's safe to say that this was my very first vintage style dress I ever had in my possession. My dear friend, Vivian, surprised me one day with it! It didn't fit her, so of course I was willing to wear it & put it to good use.
Stop Staring dresses are the epitome of classic elegance. If you want a truly 1940s, 1950s vibe Stop Staring is where to check. Clean lines (aka well formed) & it truly does seem to flatter many types of body shapes.
I'm wearing a size large, though I do believe it is even a tad too large for me! Next time I shall go for a Medium.
My hat is from 2525 Vintage.
Flowers are from Icing
Gloves are from Moon Zoom
(Two of my favorite vintage thrift shops & Icing, just because my NiccoCreation Flowers have yet to come!)
During this year of falling deeply, madly in love with recreated vintage wear & buying actual vintage outfits, I've come to a conclusion. I absolutely adore real vintage, from the actual era, however I dress in this fashion on a daily basis and those real vintage outfits take great care. Sometimes my zippers will break or the fabric will tear. I love to find recreated vintage dresses, because they will last longer and look just as great. Now, gloves & hats on the other hand are a total steal at vintage thrift shops! I scoop up them up whenever I can. Hats for me are like most women's obsession with shoes. I have to have one of every color, size, and shape. I'm drooling over my collection as I type, but it's still not complete! I must have all the hats!
(but be prepared for all the dresses you'll want to buy!)
