Hey darlings! I hope everyone's week has been going well... mine has been SUPER busy, so I am definitely ready for the weekend.

How uniquely ah-some is this dress? I love it! The fabulous JoAnn from the Riley Bella Vintage Shop sent it to me, and my eyes lit up as soon as I opened the package. I'm really liking the new "shorter in the front, longer in the back" tail dresses and skirts that I'm seeing everywhere... so it's definitely interesting how this vintage dress fits the current trend. I've always had a thing for gray dresses, ever since I was a little girl. It all started with this one puffy sleeve, ruffly in the front, gray dress my Granny bought me for my 8th Birthday. It is my absolute fave dress from childhood. I made my Mother keep it because I hope to have a girl one day that can wear it. I wish I had a photo of it, so I could show ya'll... maybe that will be a post I do sometime in the future. ;)

If you love vintage clothing, or if you are new to the idea of shopping for vintage clothing, then you must check out the Riley Bella Vintage Shop. Some of my current faves in the shop are: Lilly Pulitzer Halter Top, Blue and White Starred Mini Shorts, Turquoise Gingham Plaid Dress, Vintage 1990s Lilly Pulitzer Summer Dress, Pink Paisley & Black Harem Pants, 1980s Celine Paris Black Suede Heels, 1970's White Moccassin Ankle Boots, Teal Polka Dot Summer Dress, and the Tiptoe Through The Tulips Teal Day Dress! I seriously could go on and on, so you've gotta check out the shop and see for yourself! *If you make a purchase, don't forget to use belledecouture at checkout to receive 10% off your entire purchase! :)

  18. That dress is so ladylike and gorgeous! I've been noticing the short in front, long in back hemline too. In fact, I just took a dress to the tailor yesterday to shorten a hem (Noa is currently on night shoots for a film, and too busy to be my seamstress!) and now I'm wishing I had her go for this look!

    Oh, well... maybe we'll try it at Secondhand Star soon.
