Cotton sundresses galore

Vintage clothes have the minutest details, especially the handmade dresses. Someone spent a lot of time putting this one together and then adding lace, two bows and a contrasting trim. My stockpile (err, my mom's closet) is filled with vintage cotton dresses that are perfect for the heat, but none so simple and easy to wear as this one. I'm not sure if its still my style anymore, but summer can be exhausting and its very hard for me to be motivated to get dressed up or to focus on important tasks when the weather is hot. I am exactly as exhausted as I look in this picture, and I can't believe I'm still awake tapping away at the keyboard, ah well.

  3. You do look tired, but that is one beautiful dress. I find in summer I'm less bothered if things are "my style" or not. If it's pretty, wear it! : )

  5. Your hair is so cute here. :)
    I wish more vintage dresses could be found here in Budapest, second hand shops usually only store stuff that's only a few years old. I guess a troubled history doesn't do good for 50's-60's dresses. :)
