After a week of below freezing temperatures, it is finally starting to warm up around here. In celebration, I broke out this fantastic vintage dress which I nabbed from the sale rack at one of my favorite local stores, Grey Dog.Before I go into more detail about the outfit itself, I want to take a moment to talk about the store itself.
When I was a sophomore in high school, this little beauty of a shop opened in a renovated airstream trailer, and since I couldn’t even drive at the time, I would convince my mother to take me every chance I could. From the very first time I entered the store, the owner, Molly, was nothing but kind. She actually helped me pick out my first vintage dress and the many more that came after it. It has truly been such a joy to see this little store grow and I have had the opportunity throughout the years to further my relationship with every wonderful person who works at that beautiful little dream of a store.
So of course, when I stumbled upon this beautiful little purple mod number, it had to be mine. And despite the fact that it might not have been super weather appropriate, I just couldn’t leave this dress hanging in the closet until spring. So I put on my best pair of booties along with my felt floppy hat, and braved the cold in this pretty purple frock.
