Vintage Style

Vintage Style

You know the saying "What's old is new again." Well this dress is about 25 years old an was handed down to me by my future mother-in-law who wore it when she was 25. When she first presented me with this gorgeous Chinese silk dress I instantly thought,"I'll never squeeze my butt into this!" Then, as I got the zipper all the way up, I noticed that the fabric looked as though it was painted on, as if it were made for me!

 

Her husband bought the blue silk fabric on a business trip to China. She then had two dresses custom made in the Philippines. One has a Mandarin collar and slightly longer sleeves and the one I'm wearing is a boat neck with shorter sleeves. Both dresses also come with a belt that really accentuates the waistline and both are adorned with a beautiful pink and white patten of a cherry blossom tree.

 

For this vintage look I chose to keep the shoe simple and wore my favorite Stuart Weiztman silver metallic strappy sandals. These sandals are comfortable, chic and they look great with everything! 

 

I can't explain in enough words how much I love this dress! Although it's about 25 years old, It looks as though it was made today.

 

What goes around come right back around again...
