Graphic Print Round-Up

graphic print 11

I don’t know about you, but every time I do a little online browsing all I see are bold graphic prints, and I kinda like it! I know they look more modern than retro, but I have always liked the combination of modern prints with a vintage styled dress, or a vintage pattern with a more modern cut of frock. As someone who has been known to rock three different prints in the same outfit, I am very inspired by these designs. As a matter of fact, I purchased one of the dresses seen below. Can you guess which one it is?

What To Wear To A Spring/Summer Wedding

vintage inspired dress

I love going to weddings! First of all I enjoy celebrating any two people finding love. Then you have the gourmet food, the cocktails, the flowers, and the dancing! I love to dance and don’t get to do it as much as I would like. But mostly I just need any excuse to put on a gorgeous new gown. I put together a round-up of my favorite dresses that I think are perfect for the upcoming season. You will notice they are all brightly colored. That is because I don’t really like wearing a black dress at a wedding. Oh sure, there are plenty of people who wear them, and I think it is an acceptable choice. But for something as lighthearted as a wedding, I think it is better to go with a color instead the dreariness of black.

Vintage Wedding Dress Round-Up

vintage wedding dresses 12

When I got married 14 years ago, shopping for my wedding dress was one of the things I enjoyed the most. I had it in my head that I wanted a Vera Wang, so off we went to Barneys to see if any of them were “the one”. I knew I was having a beach wedding so I didn’t want a full princess dress, but I also didn’t want something casual either- like a slip dress which was very trendy at the time. I ended up getting an a-line lace dress with a skirt that was full on the bottom but was quite tight at the top. It had two spaghetti straps to keep the girls up, and a fingertip length vail. To this day I still love that dress. Though it wasn’t a vintage dress I felt it had a nod to classic glamour and made me feel as beautiful as Audrey Hepburn.

Three Spring Dresses


I’ve been doing some shopping online and decided to show you dolls three new dresses I purchased via ModCloth. Here is the video explanation of the outfits:

Here are the links to the items seen in the video:

Outfit 1

*Note: I normally wear a size 6 and due to the description I decided to purchase a size L. I ended up having to take the dress in at the bust, so I would purchase the size you normally wear, unless you are quite busty.

A Walk In The Park

There is just something so classic about polka dots, especially in navy blue. So when I saw Trashy Diva’s spring collection entitled, “Big Polka” I was instantly smitten. What isn’t to love about this 40s and 50s inspired grouping?
