Retrofit: Tutti-Frutti

I don't know what it is about fruits but I love to wear them. More unexpected than flowers, they're still predictably cheerful. Case in point, this 1960s halter dress I bought from my friend Aly at Aly Rose Vintage.

Pensive and barefoot.

Pears, apples--nutritious and adorable. There's no label, so I'm not able to tell you much about the dress, but I know that I really like it. The cut of the dress is so great and it's really easy to dress up or down (change the heels, etc.). It's a light cotton so it's been perfect in these hot, humid days (the day I took this photo, it was nearly 100 degrees outside and I was sweating). I'd love to have more like it.

What are have you wearing this summer?

  1. This dress is amazing, so summery and so figure flattering! Lightweight cotton is definitely the preferred choice for summer, I've been wearing a lot of cotton dresses myself.
    Also, I just have to tell you that your pose in the first photograph is absolute perfection-- so sultry!


Thanks so much for your comments!
