Vintage Embroidered Dress

{Vintage embroidered dress // Soludos wedges // Origenes purse I bought in Mexico}

Over the holidays, I raided my mom’s closet instead of going on a shopping spree. She’s a babe now, and she was a total babe when she was my age (she was a flight attendant back when they were still called “stewardesses” and had to do now-illegal things like weigh-ins). I inherited my hoarding habits from her, so I figured I would probably come up with some gorgeous vintage looks and I was right… She held on to so much cool stuff from the ’70s and ’80s, and one of my favorite finds is this embroidered shift dress she bought before I was born on a trip to Panama (where her mom, my grandmother, grew up). I’ve been wearing it non-stop lately, but thought it was especially perfect for our recent trip to Mexico. I wore it to the local farmer’s market and so many vendors were selling similar handmade dresses; I wish they were just as prevalent here in the states because this dress is so comfortable and perfect for spring (or all year, if you live in L.A. like me). But, I found a few similar vintage styles for sale on Etsy (here, here, here, here and here) and around the interwebs here, here, here and here. As always, my sweet sweet hubs Tony was #InstagramHusband’ing it up, because Instagram Husbands never get a vacation. Especially not on vacation.
