You know I don't miss the Randolph Street Market.  Now, I have been successful there before, but this trip was on a whole 'nother level.  Jen and I were like a shopping SWAT team, searching and rescuing only the finest vintage goods.  

Our loot:
60s navy blue enamel necklace
just the thing to gussy up a rather blah A.P.C. dress

70s Gucci linen wrap skirt
perfect with just about everything (after a good ironing)

oh, NBD, you see one of these every day

And most importantly, the pièce de résistance...

my silk secretary dress!!!

The problem is, as Tim Gunn would say, "it's a lot of look."  Can I pull it off? 

Biscuit is skeptical.

Seriously guys, this print is beyond.  It would be a crime to allow this dress to languish in my closet.  Do I just wear it as is?  Remove the bow to tone the look down a little?  Or maybe layer it with a navy blazer?


  1. Cute loot! I love the blue wrap skirt. The dress is adorable on. If it were me I would perhaps:

    1.) Wear a navy pullover sweater and let the bow hangout. Breaking up the print a bit.

    2.) remove bow and wear a collar necklace (maybe even a fun contrasting one?)

  2. Ooh I hadn't even considered the sweater idea! Could definitely work.

  3. sarah i am seriously in love with that print!! wowzers

  4. Feel like it could definitely pass as Tucker or DVF!
