I picked up this dress when I was in Portland a couple of months ago. It has a neat, retro vibe. I got it at a used clothing store, so maybe it is vintage. Who knows?
Dress: Crossroads Trading Co.
Shoes: Arden Wohl x Cri de Coeur
This will make a great go-to summer dress, although tights will make it a year-round item. In the heat of August, I’ll probably wear sandals. But for spring, a variety of shoe styles will work.
I immediately thought of my Arden Wohl x Cri de Coeur vegan suede shoes. The red shoes highlight the bold red stripes.
When clothes are made hastily and patterns don’t line up, it drives me crazy! I’ve walked away from purchased because of sloppy sewing. This dress, however is deliberately mismatched. In fact, there’s no seam down the center. It’s printed that way! This I can live with.
I wore this out to dinner with hubby and a couple we know. We went to a delicious vegan restaurant, Sutra. The menu is local, seasonal, and organic, and changes every two weeks! All the more reason to go back.
Oh, I’ve joined High Latitude Style, Penniless Socialite, Rachel the Hat, and Happiness at Midlife for linkups. See what all the others are wearing!

Thanks for linking up!
YOU LOOK FABULOUS!! I love this updated retro look! I know what you mean about mismatched seems, but this deliberate mismatch is very artistic. Even the sleeves are different, really unique pattern and vibrant colours. The shoes are perfect with this dress! ❤
I love this dress, the colors and fun stripe patterns makes it so unique.
Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
