Retro Look: Red and Robin’s Egg Blue

I found this vintage dress at the Punk Rock Flea Market in December and I hadn’t worn it until now. I took a tip from Carmen, the guest blogger who is trying to wear only the things she’s not worn in a while (or, in my case, ever), and pulled this out of my closet. The dress cost only $8, but why should it sit unused?

Speaking of fellow bloggers, check out Natasha’s site, Required 2 be Inspired. Today she added my profile as one of the Canadian Cuties on her Canuck page. Thanks Natasha!

I wore a red belt and a not-so-cheap pair of Fluevogs (yes, you’ve seen them on me before).I don’t always try to match but I figured the dress and boots were a bold combination and it might be good to limit the palette of this outfit. I’m trying to think of other ways to wear this dress. It’s so bright! Maybe with chocolate brown. Let me know if you have any ideas.

  1. This combination is so cute!

  2. This dress would look great with so many colours! Yellow, Coral, Blush…the list goes on!

  3. The red is so classic with the dress. Love the blue on you. I’m also feeling the coral idea. Also, navy, champagne/nudes (maybe even navy and nude together), heather gray, eggplant. Thanks for sounding off about socks with heels!

  4. this is a surprisingly pretty color combination! I love that you try new things 🙂

  5. I’m such a fan of combining colors that are near complementary. 🙂 To carry on the red theme, I’d love to see that dress with a summer-y pair of red wedge slingbacks and a red bandana for your hair. (I have a pair of red wedge slingbacks if you have size 7 feet!) I love it!

    • Red wedges! I love it. Sadly I’m not a size 7, so I won’t be asking to borrow any of your shoes. I like the bandana idea too. I never thought of it–and it’s very 70s. My mom wore them a lot when I was a kid.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
