Dress: thrifted vintage
Necklace: belonged to my grandmother
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
I’ve been shy about wearing this vintage dress that I found at Quality Thrift because of its brightness, but I finally decided to be LOUD in orange, yellow, green and red picnic plaid. I know I’ve seen Peggy Olson wear a dress or dresses like this on Mad Men in more demure tones. I like to think this is the California version of her drop-waist picnic plaid dress(es), with its citrus colors.
I don’t think my grandma would approve of my wearing her pearls with this dress. My mom’s mom was a black and white, Chanel-inspired kind of lady. So I felt a little wrong adding them to this outfit even though, really, this dress just HAD to be worn with a strand of pearls and this is the only strand I have.
