Vintage Leaves


This dress is such a beauty, but it's a vintage polyester dress and the all over leaves and the grey color make it a little old-fashioned. I still love it and will always pair it with a colorful cardigan or, as seen here, with a colored coat to give it a boost. I found it in a vintage shop in Helsinki last summer and had the neckline opened up a bit to go away from the old-fashioned style.




What I wore

Dress & Belt: Thrifted
Coat: Long Tall SallyThrifted
Necklace & Bracelet: Ibero
Ring: Thrifted
Tights: Esda
Boots: Deichmann







We went feeding the ducks and swans that day and I had loads of fun lining up those swans for a swan dance ;)

What a lovely dress although I guess it's a shame it's polyester. I really like how you have styled it too! Kx

Hi Anja, I am Ada. I have stopped by before. I remember when this dress was sold at stores. The print and style of it are beautiful and I absolutely love it with the red coat. Great thrift finds. Your photos and background are so pretty. I just love those little swans. =)

I would love for you to join my new linkup (below) with this outfit and any other recent outfits. They are too pretty, not to share. Thank you. =))

Yes, Polyester is such a buzz killer. You can wear it during the cold months, but not at all during Spring or Summer. Still love the print :)
