My Happy Dress

I scored a couple sweet finds at the last SWAPmaine. I added to my ever expanding cardigan collection, found an amazing vintage coral maxi skirt (I’m sure it will be making a blog appearance soon), and picked up a couple cute tank tops, among other things. However, my biggest triumph was this vintage sheath dress.

Dress: vintage, via SWAPmaine
Gold flats: Gap (years ago)
Straw belt: thrifted
Bag: Michael Michael Kors
Watch: Michael Kors

I think my eyes bugged out of my head when I saw it. It is PERFECT. I love yellow and blue together (see my wedding for proof) and this silhouette is one of my favorites – flattering, comfortable, work appropriate, and shows off the gun show. Heh heh. I love that it has vintage appeal, but looks like it could have been designed this year.

Trench: Bloomingdale’s (via consignment)

This is definitely my new “happy dress” – which in Laura speak translates to “a dress that makes me feel my best.” Here is one of my other happy dresses, which not coincidentally is a vintage printed sheath.

Ring: In Pink (via a gift card I won somewhere)

Do you have a happy dress?

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
