Hey! Happy Tuesday! :DDD This will be a very quick post, since I'm only wearing a couple new things. I just wanted to show off this beautiful vintage surrealist print maxi dress. The artwork on the dress is a rad mixture of butterflies, florals and architecture from the Arc de Triomphe to the Brooklyn Bridge.
That being said, it feels like a dream when I wear it. It's super soft and I've always wanted an extra long cardigan in this color. Hopefully, I can convince myself to wear it more. It's just that its delicate knitting and the fact that it was rather expensive means I will want to wear it sparingly and carefully. Hehe.
Throughout the dress is a sort of old rusted metal texturing that gives the surreal scene a palpable retro flavor. The collar is more of a rectangular shape and the sleeves come just under the elbow on me. For ease of movement, there is a 20 inch long vent at the lower left side of the dress. All of these unique characteristics make the dress one-of-a-kind. I'm always looking for clothing that are limited or rare in nature, because I love knowing that I'll likely never run into anyone wearing the exact same thing.
The rad fringe bag is from Chicnova. I've had it for awhile now and I wear it sparingly. I usually save it for outfits that need an extra edge. Also, you'll probably notice a sliver of dark fabric at my neckline. That's just a protective garment that I wore to maintain the like-new integrity of the dress.
The surrealist print maxi dress is one of the more popular items for sale in my Etsy shop. Check out the product listing for more details about measurements, quality and fit! ^_^ I hope you liked this very simple pairing. I would have preferred to add another layer or two, but then you wouldn't have been able to really see the whole dress which would have been a shame, because it is just gorgeous! <3
