this dress is possibly the luckiest vintage item i have ever found. when i studied abroad in london with kira we used to devour portobello road for hours on end. we stayed so long that we could never make it to the end of the road. we finally realized that we needed to start from the bottom up. we took the metro a couple of stops down, and found the mecca that is at the end of portobello (not quite as picturesque as the first few blocks, but wayyyy more affordable). that's where i found this dress that has accompanied me to some major life events. like my interview at anthro (that i was late for an didn't get the job because of it- i'll never learn). i love it so much.
i paired my (old) teal t-straps (seychelles from anthro), my gold bow headband (from anthro), bright blue earrings (world market), and green warby parker sunglasses.
