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.
