apricot xo

the best thing about collecting vintage is those amazing pieces you know arn’t ready to come out of the wardrobe yet, but their time will roll around. this is exactly what happened with this gorgeous apricot dress i bought in vintage desir in paris during my first european trip, in 2009. originally a maxi, i took it up to a fun & flirty little cocktail dress. mermaid style draping at the sides, and elastic waist makes it a dream fit on nearly any size.
it has been patiently waiting at home in the closet while i’ve been away again, only for me to find it when looking for ideas for a colour blocking post. match with a vintage lemon coloured clutch, creates a perfect beautifully bright colour outfit, and not too harsh.
wearing; vintage apricot dress, vintage lemon clutch, jeffrey campbell maria wedges, ysl and vintage rings.
