The Vintage Strapless Dress

I love the sweet and simple silhouette of this 50s floral strapless summer dress. Whisper light cotton strewn with pastel flowers faded by time. I didn’t have a strapless bra in my kit for this shoot, so I decided to make it more 2019 with visible bra. I liked the harder edge of the bedazzled denim vest, with a studded gold shoulder bag and laser cut metallic leather espadrilles.

With the proper undergarments you could do a summer princess look with a ballerina bun and coordinating ballet flats (soft aqua, blush pink, or fuschia would be the best colors). A strapless push up makes the most of the bares shoulders and collarbone, a waist shaper, and there’s room for a crinoline to fluff the skirt out. Plus some sweet little white gloves and a pastel colored clutch. Too cute.

This is a great summer in the city look, mixing that old fashioned floral with rocker chic edge.

See you next time!
