My mom often tells me that if my head wasn't screwed onto my neck I would have long lost it, which is absolutely true. I'm one of those people that leave things under couch cushions with the promise of "oh, I'll remember it", hide things in pockets that are tucked away into closets and long forgotten, and stuff things into nook and crannies because I don't feel like taking the extra step to put it into its right place. And it always bites me in the ass. Take yesterday for example- I haven't the slightest idea where my camera charger is. The slightest! And what's worse is I spent the whole morning cleaning and organizing our apartment to find it. All that labor and for naught. Excuse me while I go scream into a pillow.

But if there's one thing that could cheer me up it's a plate of pad thai and a new dress. After my cleaning rampage I went to go order some takeout and slipped into this gorgeous Fancy Lucky Vintage dress, with the hopes of not propelling myself into a Stage Five sulk. It worked. And check out those POCKETS. It's like the stylish version of cargo pants, isn't it? I should just stuff all the important things in my life into these bad boys, and then I'd never have to lose a thing again! If you're in the market for a pretty dress of your own, go check out Fancy Lucky Vintage- they have plenty more!

  1. mmmm pad thai.

    I love the dual stripes!!


  2. That's nothing, 2 weeks ago I lost my my house. I searched for HOURS and still nothing. UGH
    Super cute dress, anything with pockets obviously rules

  3. Your dress! It's so adorable! I loooove anything with huge pockets, thats my favorite!

    And you sound like me, I can not tell you that countless amount of times i lost my charger (and other important things) thinking it was gone forever but instead crammed somewhere unpredictable

  4. Pad thai always brightens my day too, haha! And I loooove this stripe-on-stripe action. You have the best style!!

    Xo, Hannah

  5. love the dress! and fingers crossed you find your charger too :)

  6. Great outfit - the dress is really cute! :)

  7. Oh you sweetie, I'm sure things will turn out from places you never imagined they could be at! Hehe that is such a funny dress, but hey - it really is practical. You just make people smile with outfits like these! :)

    Much love from Epp,


  8. lovely pictures and that dress is so sweet! i always thought i was following your blog, and it turns out i wasn't, ha. i am now, though! xx

  9. That dress is awesome, I especially love the double stripes! COuld you have left your charger home in Chicago a few weeks ago and not used it since then? I am the same way and I seriously lose EVERYTHING all the time. My college roommates used to make me do a verbal checklist for them out loud any time we went anywhere or left the house.

  10. Yay for the cheering powers of Pad Thai! Hope you find that charger, cute lady.

  11. Ooh lovely pockets... it's like heaven in there!

  12. Aww I was hoping you were going to say that you found your camera charger in the pocket of that dress! Oh well, the search continues??

    I love Thai food. I'd be happy to have an IV of yellow curry sauce connected to me. That actually sounds terrible, but what I'm saying is I love yellow curry.

  13. Love the double stripes in this outfit!

    And I forget where I put things all the time too! Sometimes I put my car keys somewhere I don't usually put it thinking, "I'm going to put these here so I won't lose them anymore," only to forget I that I put them there. Meanwhile I'm searching my entire apartment for my keys when they're in the place I put specifically so I wouldn't forget haha.

  14. ahah, i am just like that too! my boyfriend calls me the most forgetful person in the world, i am constatnley thinking i left things in my apartment or locking my keys in my car.. the list goes on!

    that dress is really great, it looks so perfect being layered that like!

  15. the pockets definitely caught my eye I love the dress

  16. Double stripes! Yes! I love it. Those pockets are definitely glorious and way more stylish than cargo pants.
    I am all too familiar with forgetful object placers. Because my boyfriend is one and I'm usually looking for something he put somewhere it shouldn't be.

  17. Ohhh nooooo....I hope you find your camera charger soon! That's got to be one of my biggest fears...That sucks :(
    On a brighter at least have these nice photos to post. Aha, the pockets on that striped dress are marvelous!

  18. I adore your vintage look and of course I love vintage!

  19. Capitol Hill <3! I am jealous of your life lol. Those pockets are pretty awesome though and I'm liking this vertical stripes on top of horizontal stripes action you've got going on.

  20. Awesome vintage dress!:)
    Double stripes have a cool effect!:)
    Have a nice weekend!:)

  21. vertical stripes + horizontal stripes = perfection

  22. This place looks awesome! <3
    Your dress is so cool :D

    Love from France <3


  23. Love the mix of stripes! And I agree, there are few better cheer-ups than a new dress and a bit plate of pad thai :)


  24. I know that "oh, I'll remember" feeling, it's awful! I then remember some stuff that I probably should remember LONG time ago, hee hee. Great post as always, it real pleasure reading you :).


  25. I like the vertical vs. horizontal stripes you have going on!

  26. "The stylish version of cargo pants." Ha! Best line. There really is NOTHING better than a new dress to make everything right in the world.

  27. I love the striped combo. Because you can never have too many stripes in one outfit. Thats my moto.

  28. I love the oversized pockets!! I am the same with misplacing things - but I have gotten better recently since developing a slight "organization" fetish - seriously, I troll pinterest for quirky organizational pictures and emulate them, it's working out quite well. Ramble on Paula...

  29. Oh man, those pockets are amazing! LOVE.
    Haha, I do the SAME thing. I'm always losing stuff (mostly, my phone) because I set it somewhere thinking I'll remember, and then I totally forget. Yeah.

  30. I love how you layer your stripes :)

  31. This dress is great, and those pockets! I vaguely remember my aunt wearing something like this when I was growing up, and since she never gets rid of anything, it makes me want to raid her closet to see if she still has it :) I love the pairing with t striped tee and belt. Very nice! (and I hope you find your charger!)

    Found you via I Feel Pretty. Find me at

  32. the absolute worst is not remembering where you placed something. and even worse/more frustrating is not being able to find something like your photo battery charger! For someone who takes a lot of photos on the daily via both dslr and iphone, i am pretty sure I would have a meltdown if I couldn't find their chargers.

  33. Ooo I LOVE this pretty vintage dress! And it's so perfect with the opposing stripes on your top! Gah, I do the same thing with losing stuff. And my camera charger has often been a victim. I hope you find it!! But pad thai is definitely a mood changer :)
