I picked up this vintage wool dress at Salvation Army a couple weeks ago for a steal ($2.50). I've been dying to wear it since, mainly because it's like a goddamn ray of sunshine in all its yellow-hued adorableness. Even better than the sunny color is the clean-lined simplicity of it, making it a perfect blank-slate for accessories and layering.
But so many options! The mystery of what to pair it with left me befuddled. The clues were there, however, and the answer became clear — a vintage plaid Pendleton coat (also purchased for a steal at $5!) Why? Because together they looked like something Nancy Drew might wear in the '70s. And obviously Nancy Drew makes me think of books. So off to the library we went, where I stifled giggles and tried my best not to disturb the quiet. (It was quite a feat for me.)
The bottom line? This dress is awesome. Case closed.
