One Dress, Three Ways: 50's Purple Plaid

This is one of my all time favorite vintage dresses. I'm pretty sure that I say that about all of them. What can I say? They're all my favorite! They're like my children. I love them all equally for different reasons.

This is the ultimate vintage summer dress! It's a beautiful lightweight cotton. The details on this dress are just awesome! I love the front ruffled placket and I adore the patch pockets!

After my post yesterday I am also loving this spot in my living room for outfit photos! What do you think?

Speaking of favorites, I bought this necklace while I worked at Ragpickers. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it! I had to have it! I love wearing it with a simple t-shirt and jeans!
