Mod sixties dress

Dress: Vintage (I think). Lookalikes from Asos, Misguided and Cusp.  Sandals: Mango.  Bag: Valentino (code: PR3NXT for 30% off) or try Hobo. Sunglasses: LoveDay31 vintage. Try Topshop.

You know when a pattern catches your eye on a clothes rail and you pull it out?  That was the case with this dress.  Reminds me of something Don Draper’s wife Megan would’ve worn (love her wardrobe).  I found it at No Relation which is one of my favourite shops here.  I should do a feature on them because they warrant it.  The selection is huge and it’s all as cheap as chips (two thumbs up).

The sandals were a find after weeks of looking at lace up gladiators.  I didn’t want to spend a fortune but still wanted the look of skinny strappy ones and these at $40 fit right in with that.  Plus they don’t have that strip going up the back of the leg that I’m not completely sold on.  Let me know if you cave on these.

Speaking of caves, my fave Memorial Day weekend sales (thus far):

Saks – up to 55% off.  Shopbop – up to 70% off.  Nordstrom – up to 40% off. Matches Fashion – up to 70% off.   Office – up to 30% off

    I love the gladiators, the nude color looks really nice. I love the flirtiness of the dress as enhanced by the colors.

      Thank you! I always wanted the nude ones. Yes the colors on the dress are ridic !

    Hi Karen, love the dress! Wish I could get one. Two questions about the gladiators: 1) Do they run true to size? and 2) Did you notice they were riding down? Some of those with the ties do that and it drives me crazy! Heading to St. Lucia soon and I plan on having these!

      Hey Stylista! Thank you. I know that dress. I found a couple of ones that’s like it but not the exact unfortunately. The sandals run a little small. I got a 41 and I wear a Euro 41 in most designer shoes and I am a US 10 too. Hope that helps? By the way on their website a 9.5 shows as the largest and when it arrives its a 41! So just an FYI if you get online: 9.5 is a 41 (in their way of thinking)

        Thanks Karen!! Definitely helps :-).

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      Thank you I love the colors of it a lot!
