Everything's Peachy

Who: Jo from Lost in the Haze

What: Vintage, hand-sewn, peach-colored dress

Where:
Madame Butterfly’s Vintage Style Boutique in Christchurch, New Zealand

How Much: “22 New Zealand dollars! I was so lucky, as I’d been eying it up for ages, and when I went in to buy it, it was half price as it was originally $44! Self high five!”

When I Use It: “I wear my dress so often! I wear it on warm days with ankle socks and oxfords, and on cold days I’ll put a jacket on over the top, and take my socks up a notch.”

Shopping Tips: “Always look in the deepest, darkest corners of vintage shops! The best stuff always seems to be lurking in the shadows!”

    So pretty! Love it with the straw hat. If only my pasty skin tone could pull off this delicate hue. :P Le sigh.
