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!
