Unique Vintage Style Society | Garden State Dress
When I was a little girl, I had a mint green party dress with a white dotted overlay. I was a bit of a tomboy as a child, and I didn’t really care what I wore (I know, how things have changed, huh?), but damn, I loved that mint green dress. I felt like a princess in it – albeit a slightly dishevelled one, who always seemed to have scraped knees and her pigtails falling down, no matter how carefully her mother had tied them in place.
Well, I no longer have the scraped knees or the pigtails (although my hair is pretty dishevelled in some of these – some things never change!), but I HAVE finally managed to replace the dress, thank to the Unique Vintage Style Society, which I wrote about last month. This month’s pick is the brand’s beautiful ‘Garden State’ dress, and it probably goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that this is one of the few times on this blog when I didn’t actually wear the outfit in “real life” – not because I don’t love it, I hasten to add, but because this is a special dress, designed for a special occasion, and unfortunately I don’t have any of those planned for this week. Or, you know, ever. Hey, why have none of you invited me to a fancy party lately?!
Anyway, wearing this in day-to-day life would’ve been a bit much even for me, but you’re never too old to play dress-up in the privacy of your own room, and that’s exactly what I did: I think my 5-year-old self would’ve thoroughly approved, and as long as my inner princess is happy, I’m happy too. Well, it would be hard not to be in a dress like this one, wouldn’t it?
