{Vintage Faves} Yen from My Edit's Vintage Silk 'Scassi' Dress


Hey loves! Remember my post from last Friday? Well the vintage guest post series is kicking off today, and we're starting it off with Yentine from My Edit. I love Yen's blog & style oh so much, and her vintage finds make me swoon! She recently opened her own vintage store (a dream of mine) -- go Yen! Be sure to check out her blog to see her other amazing vintage looks! belle2 belle1 "Picking my favourite piece of vintage is a hard task. I have quite a few great pieces in my closet and I now own a vintage boutique... that means I have stuff on the racks in the store that I am in love with and I am torn between selling it and just wanting to hoard it for myself. Owning a vintage boutique is a lot of work and the hardest part is choosing what to part with;) That's the truth right there."

"I will say this vintage silk Scassi ranks pretty high for me. I love the print, the long sleeves and the fact that the hem has such a fun wave. It's also the first piece of vintage I ever spent a good amount of money on. I've always thrifted and often vintage would be included in those thrift hauls. I could spot what was vintage but I never really thought about what makes it special. It was just something nice... Now I appreciate the workmanship, quality and history of vintage and me paying close to $100 for this dress was a step for me in recognizing the true value in vintage. And even though $100 is a lot for me to spend on a dress, I have never regretted the purchase. This dress beings me joy both when I wear it and when it's just sitting pretty in my closet... It's like a piece of art on a hanger. "

  1. OH, I love it! Love the dress and super jealous she has a vintage boutique too! I totally agree that as you learn to really appreciate vintage, you realize that spending on the quality of the item is worth it.

    Fabulous post!
