Wearing What You Love

I don't wear a ton of vintage and the vintage I do wear are pieces that make my heart sing. When I spotted this barkcloth dress on etsy I think my eyes bugged out of my head, atomic print! I snatched up this piece for $25 to wear for occasions when Tiki garb is required, but I was disappointed when I tried the dress on and it just didn't look right. 

I showed my friend Julie Ann the dress and explained my dilemma and she suggested that I wear it like a jacket. What a great idea and I am over the moon for the colors and the atomic print, I think it's going to be a piece that is going to be worn day-to-day rather than being worn time-to-time.

I feel we all get wrapped up in presenting a "certain look" even though it may be subconscious. Sometimes wearing that one thing that you love rather than hiding it away in the closet for 'specific reasons' is very empowering.


Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I so totally agree!! If you save something you love to wear only for a "special occasion", you usually end up never wearing it! I now wear the things I love every day, and... I LOVE it!! ;-)

    1. Yes! I've been wearing my "special things" and it makes me feel great too! =D I'm also wearing my crazy patterned combo/jewelry/shoes/etc. and it's so liberating!

  2. Wow that is a lovely print!! I agree also, wear what you love and what makes you feel good!! and not just for special days but everyday!

  3. I love this dress/jacket!!! So hard for me to wear my special things on the regular... I'm so rough on my everyday clothes :(

  4. Wow! What a unique piece! It looks fantastic as a jacket and I would have never guessed that it wasn't meant to be worn exactly like that. I think you are glowing a little in the picture. I know how you feel, I am trying some new things at the moment, and changing it up really feels great, as does finding something that is just 'you'!

  5. I have such a bad habit of not wearing special occasion clothes! It does improve your day drastically. Have to say, I've done the dress-as-a-jacket thing too.

  6. That actually works really well as a jacket.
