Vintage Style: Printed Shirt Dress


Who knows what happened… I haven’t been wearing as much vintage as I used to. Maybe it’s the prices, maybe a few experiences having to make repairs, but whatever it was, it’s been a while since I have purchased a vintage dress. The other day, while working on a project, I found this vintage printed shirt dress at Amarcord Vintage down the street from my office. It’s the perfect cotton summer dress with a beautiful print with horses, rabbits and all kinds of things, it’s like a page in a book of fables, but on a dress. It is amazingly comfortable and the cotton is sturdy… certainly unlike what you would see today, partially because advancement of textile technology and generally people like soft fabrics to wear, but this is a special piece, and I can’t wait to get more wear out of it this summer.

    Yes, the vintage prices in New York can be very high. Have you tried the big vintage shop in the Lower East Side (can’t remember the name but it’s expansive and reasonable - I think it’s on Ludlow). Then there is Screaming Mimi’s in The Village which has good prices and the premium stuff is roped off upstairs. That dress is very nice with those shoes.

    A classic print is perfect for a sunny spring day, and paired with a leather shoe like that really takes it to the next level!

    Oh my goodness with the shoes. I think I must have commented on them already but just wow. That dress is perfect. I think a printed vintage dress with a trench and neutral shoes, especially skyscraper-high neo-classic heels (!) are the perfect combination for spring.

    Beautiful shoes! I’m in love!
