Old Dress

Red sundress with white flowers, All That Jazz. Black, long-sleeved tee, Mossimo. Dark jeans, Calvin Klein. Red patent belt, Xhilaration. Red patent peep-toe flats, New York & Company. Cherry earrings, Claire’s Boutique. Blue purse, Wilson’s Leather.

I bought this dress in February, 1995 at a spring clearance sale at the Mariposa in the Bellis Fair Mall (Bellingham, WA). It came with a white denim vest that had a make-up stain. I tossed the vest, as I didn’t like it anyway. I’ve been wearing this dress for 12 years now. Does that make it vintage?

This is the first time I’ve worn it over jeans, or layered it at all. I think it’s neat to take something that you’ve owned forever and wear it in a totally new way.

I'm not a fan of the black long-sleeved tee...not flattering with bright red. (your belt is really cute though:) Whenever wearing a dress over jeans...dark-wash skinny jeans are best.
