The Most Lovely Vintage Dress

Who: Libertad (Sahakiel), from Not Here to Please You

What: The most lovely vintage dress from the ’50s I could imagine

Retro Collective, a vintage shop at Barcelona.

How Much:
35 €, a good price for something like this in Spain!

When I Use It:
“I would wear it everyday, because it makes me feel so pretty! The last time I wore it was when I met Scott Schuman, and he was really impressed. I always wear high heels with it; it makes me feel so special!”

Shopping Tips: “Always look at everything in a vintage shop, try everything you like and everything you’re not sure about. Maybe that dress that looks bad on the hanger will look gorgeous on you, and vice versa! So be sure of what you’re looking for and what you want, and always ask if there is more that may fit you in the shop. Sometimes, store owners have pretty things in the back of the store waiting for you!”

    Oh my! I have that exact same dress in a mustard plaid colorway. I just got it as well here in SF (for almost the exact same price). How interesting!!! It looks great on you 🙂
