Green Goddess Dressing Vintage Dress and accessories

Green Goddess Dressing Vintage Dress and accessories

Dress c/o* | Cardigan | Flats | Scarf c/o* | Belt

Told you I liked this vintage dress so much I had to wear again ASAP! However, this time I tried some different accessories to spice up the look. The accessories were also necessary because we had a cold streak for a couple days…so a cardigan and a scarf were necessary.

Speaking of which, check it out! I’m finally wearing a cardigan other than my trusty mustard colored one. Haha. I finally broke down and ordered a different color of the exact same cardigan. Because let’s face it, I needed a little more variety, and I’m practically on the verge of wearing holes in the mustard colored one!

And this scarf was another vintage find from my new favorite store, Green Goddess Vintage. The shop’s owner Laurie had picked it out, and it matches this vintage 1970s Alison Ayres dress perfectly! (The dress is also from Green Goddess Dressing.) You guys will have to check out her shop. πŸ™‚

I had paired it with a belt to give it a little more structure with the cardigan and to have something to match my trusty black flats. I had quite a lot of walking that day, so I wanted to wear some comfy shoes with this look.

This week I’m dog sitting for my parents, so taking indoor photos (like the one above) has been too funny. Their pooches are like glue to me and need to be in all the shots! (Photographic evidence is below, haha.)

It’s nice to have some furry companions around, though, because this has been a real stinker of a week! As you may notice, this post was late getting published today. (Sorry!) That was because the WifI stopped working yesterday, and someone has to come out to take a look today (fingers crossed it’s resolved ASAP). We also were really excited and placed a bid on a house for asking price on Monday, and found out last night that someone else swooped in and bid over asking price…so, we lost the house. Darn it! And we’re in a small town in Wisconsin, not San Francisco! So, this competitive housing market is just bonkers! But oh well, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Back to house hunting this weekend!

    The dog photos were hilarious….not only are they glued to you—they are glued on you!!
    What a bummer about the house. It’s so crazy right now in Denver too, that I’m super glad we aren’t in the midst of it. But I will tell you that Nancy will be selling her house as soon as her other one is built (they say in June or July)….you could move out here???
    XOXO

    I love how you styled this dress! The neck scarf is so cute! I have never tried styling a vintage dress but I would love to! I would probably like something from the 20’s and try to make it work with some trendy pieces today! xo

    Lindsey, I love this look! (The dogs appear to like it, too.) It’s fun to see how others style vintage pieces to make them their own. Good luck with the house hunt. As a friend’s mother says, “Another bus will be along in a minute.”

    You wear the vintage style so well, that dress is just charming! Such a lovely colour. Sorry you missed out on the house, but there’s probably a more perfect one for you out there πŸ˜‰

    Loving this look Lindsey! Red and ice blue are one of my very favorite color combinations. And it’s so frustrating about the house! We’re in the process of starting the house hunt now, and though it doesn’t sound like it’s quite so competitive here in NC as it is in Wisconsin, the waiting game and worry that someone else will swoop in on your dream house is ever-present. I really hope you find the perfect place soon – how grown up are we, buying houses?!?!? πŸ˜‰
