Pastel Dream Dress









THIS DRESS. it's everything i could ever hope or dream of finding in a dress, and if memory serves me it came into my life for a cool $10. made for each other, right? it's a light cotton, perfectly fitting pastel dream and it's definitely in my top 5 favourites out of my whole wardrobe. as for my scarf, belt and shoes, they were all op-shopped but the little mermaid brooch i made myself, because doesn't every girl secretly still wish she was a mermaid?

  15. That brooch is SO so pretty Jessica! I love it, and I only love it more now that I know that you made it yourself. Lucky you to find this dress for such a small price. I never have much luck when I go vintage shopping so I mainly tag along with my friend and help them find things ^^ xo

  16. There is such a sweet, gentle loveliness to this outfit and palette. It makes me think of everything from Easter decor to bags of sugary sweets, watercolour paintings to knitted baby blankets, and is so flatteringly, wonderfully pretty. I love the juxtaposition of your dark, completely mermaid worthy locks against a sea of pale hues like this. Marvelous styling, dear gal!

  20. you look fantastic and suit this look so so much!

    thanks for your comments on my nyc posts - i would definitely recommend you visit brooklyn, i think it would be right up your street. we only spend time in williamsburg but there are so many other cool areas i'd love to go back to. and i also really love meatpacking district & soho but didn't get chance to get to the east & west villages. there's practically a sephora on every street corner - which you'll love!!! i'll let you know any other places when i think of them x

  21. Pastel plaid and a mermaid brooch - could your outfit get any better? I don't think so. There is something very 1940's/50's about the frock's cut, love it. x
