While spending the better part of last week in the deep south, I found an Antique store and that had the most amazing deals! I bought this blouse for $8 (I will probably spend more on the restoration of it at Madame Paulette and on buttons). It reminds me of something that Philip Lim did recently… Between the nude-ish/pinky color and the delicate details, I was sold.
I also found this 1940′s dress for only $28! At first I didn’t buy it, because it is too big for me… but I couldn’t get the beautiful seaming and pleating out of my head, so I went back for it. The dress has an understated, sophistication about it, and by keeping the accessories modern, this look will never go out of style!
