Vivien of Holloway has become one of my absolute favorite retro brands for their gorgeous dresses and separates. I get a thrill every time I add one of their pieces to my wardrobe like this gorgeous gold leaf printed halter sarong dress with the matching Bolero. Not only is it sexy but its comfortable too! I love dresses that have matching boleros because I have lots of keloid scars on my back. Most of the time I don’t mind having them seen but its nice to have an option for the days I don’t feel so hot. However, I don’t think its even possible to feel “not so hot” in a dress like this. I mean, its gorgeous! I felt fabulous! I love that sarong dresses don’t exactly suffocate your hips as much as wiggle dresses do but you still get that hourglass shape. I wish I could buy them all as this VOH dress comes in a variety of colors and patterns but hey..at least I got my hands on this one! I wore it while shopping the other day before having drinks with my friends at Frankie’s Tiki Bar. I kept my accessories simple since the dress has a busy pattern so I just wore my patent black mules, vintage gold hoop earrings, some bamboo bangles, a wicker clutch, and a cute vintage pineapple brooch. I was in my element!
