Hello! I'm pretty confident that I was born in the wrong decade. Actually, I'm completely positive that I was born into the wrong decade (even as much as I love you, dear internet!) I'd be incredibly content if it was 1966 right now instead of 2016. But as time travel does not currently exist, I'll stick to traveling back to the sixties through the way that I dress.
Recently, I added the two most wonderful vintage, sixties-esque pieces to my wardrobe: the funky white shoes and vibrant dress that I'm wearing in the photos above. I spotted this dress last week at Rumors and knew that I needed it in my wardrobe. The bold colors, trippy print and vintage appeal of the dress are absolutely irresistable. This dress was a steal at around $15 and even better yet, I had store credit that I was able to use to make the purchase.
While the dress was definitely a great purchase, the shoes were an even better purchase. I spotted these beauties at Diversity Thrift last week as well and immediately fell in love with them. The funky shape is unlike anything that I've ever seen before. They're so mod that it's almost ridiculous. Like could they be any cooler? However, they were completely beat up and covered in scuff marks when I spied them. But I had never seen any shoes like them before and for just $4, I decided to purchase them and attempt to clean them up as well as possible. Luckily with the help of a little olive oil and nail polish remover, I was able to have these shoes looking great in no time.
It was a no-brainer to pair the two purchases together for a distinctly sixties look. I added to the retro essence of the look with a vintage purse and rad cat-eye sunglasses. A swipe of lipstick accentuated the vibrant colors of the dress.
