Playing Dress Up: Vintage Dress Outfit Post

Ok, not to get all Freudian on you, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately on my tendency to want to play dress up…Even though I’m 28.  And I think it goes back to the fact that I never really played “dress up” as a child.  For some reason, it didn’t seem like an option.  Maybe it was the fact that I had brothers who would have made fun of me if they caught me prancing about in a frilly outfit, or maybe it was just a lack of clothes, but whatever the reason, I remember never really playing dress-up outside of Halloween and dance recitals. And that was just fine with me. 

But if there was ever a dress to play dress up in, this is it!   I know I’ve posted about it before, but this is one dress that deserves revisiting!

  This was a fabulous find at a Portland shop called Vintage Pink, courtesy of my Aunt Jeanette.  It’s a gorgeous print with unusual sequined detail all over.  I had to do some clever seamstress-ing in order to take the bust in, but all in all, I think it’s the prettiest dress in my closet! 
And this wasn’t just me dressing up, I wore this baby to an actual tea party the other week.  So it’s dress up with a purpose!  😉
