DRESS: c.o New Old Fashion| SWEATER: thrifted| HAT: Urban Outfitters| BOOTS: Lulu*s
So yesterday Marc and I cozied up and watched the wine documentary Somm, with the intentions of becoming wine snobs ourselves with our boxed Franzia and aged Yellowtail. After spending two hours nervously sweating with the Master Somm candidates (you wouldn't believe how intense the studying is- like they have to know the soil the grapes were grown in just by tasting a glass), we decided to pop the wine corks just to take the edge off of our fried nerves. And after two glasses in we thought, "hey it's a Saturday, we're young, why don't we go out?"
So we slipped on our shoes and went in the direction of Queen Anne's little dive bars with every intention of drinking cheap beer after cheap beer. So as we rounded the corner to the first one we were met with the curious sight of an empty sidewalk. We didn't see the usual line of semi-sober people standing outside the door, and when we came up to the window the lights were still fairly...bright. Thinking it was probably an off night, we kept on towards the second bar in the block. We passed by it and there was only one bored looking girl sitting at a table, playing what was probably Words with Friends on her phone as she sipped her beer. We looked at each other in confusion and I went for my phone to check the time.
You guys....it was eight o'clock. I am officially a ninny and am expecting the grey hairs to start sprouting any day now. Good Lord.
But on a more fashiony note, if I did make it out to the bars I'd sure look darn cute. This New Old Fashion Vintage dress is quickly becoming one of my favorites. A girl can't go wrong with plaid during the winter, and the dark blue and green tones are a fun canvas to match berry and rust colors with. Last time around I shrugged on a thick cardigan and beret (seen in this post), but this time I turned it into a skirt and threw on my favorite sweater. When layering in that kind of way, I really like making sure the collar peeks out and that the sleeves of the sweater are rolled up far enough to let the dress sleeves poke out, so you still get the sense it's a dress under there and not a skirt. And if you're in the market for a pretty dress of your own, be sure to check out New Old Fashion Vintage here- they have tons!
And here are some other favorites from them that I just can't stop drooling over- how pretty is that pumpkin spice color mod dress?
