Last week my friend Ingrid and I decided to take a walk around the lower east side. I was feeling very rockabilly on this beautiful spring day and was happy to wear a vintage dress I bought at the Miss Ruth’s Time Bomb booth at Viva Las Vegas. I didn’t get to document this one because I got it on the last day I was there and was rushing around the vendors to see what goodies they had left. I bought 2 dresses from Ruth’s, this being one of them. But it seems every time I see her stuff wether it be here in NY for Mode Merr shows or all the way in Vegas, I always find something. I love shirt dresses and this one has the perfect print. I wore it with a vintage taupe belt, a pashmina scarf, my vintage wicker purse, and my Miu Miu mules. I kept my accessories light with my vintage cat-eye glasses, earrings, and my Crave Yard brooch. I also brought my cashmere vintage sweater along for the chilly weather that surprises us New Yorker’s quite often. It is a shame these photos are so dark, I did one of my classic pinup short do’s by rolling my hair up in the back with waves in the front. Ingrid looked amazing as usual in a leather jacket, vintage skirt, and cute leopard wedges she recently found at Buffalo Exchange. She also kept her accessories light and wore a pair of shades and hoop earrings. A little later on in the day we figured, why not document our outfits and that is exactly what we did. Check out the photos inside.
There is something elegant about wearing a scarf this way. It really complimented my dress.I love my Crave Yard brooch and have been wearing it a lot since I acquired it in Vegas. It really matches the print of the dress well.I also really love my vintage-esque Miu Miu mules. They resemble classic mules that were worn religiously in the 50’s. When I found and bought them at Buffalo Exchange I had no idea they were even Miu Miu, I had been searching for this style of shoe that wasn’t falling apart for ages. Most vintage ones I find are too broken in and worn out.It got chilly at sun down so I just put on my cashmere cardigan. Cashmere really is a cashmiracle according to SJP in Sex and the City, it always keeps you comfy and warm!Ingrid was already ready for the chilly evening in a dope leather jacket. I like how she paired it with a vintage skirt and wedges. It’s not very conventional and that’s exactly why I love it!Her hair style and accessories compliment her outfit well. It is sleek and chic with a sprinkle of BAB (bad ass b*tch). WEPA!Love love love her wedges. Who said wedges couldn’t be sexy?Ingrid and I love regal vintage prints and have tons of clothes with all kinds of them. This skirt is no exception, the pattern is awesome.Check Ingrid out at Customfad.com!
