tickling the ivories


A few weeks ago, Unique Vintage had an amazing sale – dresses for only $25!  I had never ordered from them before, but it seemed like a good opportunity to give them a try.  Plus, I have been stalking their website for months and have many items of my wish list!


Overall, it was a great experience.  I purchased two dresses (this red one and a black/white dress), then crossed my fingers…final sale!  This dress fit pretty well, but sadly the other is too big and long.  Since it was so cheap, I don’t think I’ll mind taking it in a bit.  A quick zip through the sewing machine and I will be all set!

My accessories for this look include a delightful piano clutch, sunglasses, headband, handmade bracelet (nerd alert: I call it my double helix bracelet because it looks just like one if you twist it!), and cute phonograph pin.

    Soooo cute – and may be even cuter since it was such a steal!! Too bad the other one is a bit big – but yes, it should be a quick fix! Better to be too big than too small! Can’t do much with a dress you can barely zip into! AH!!

      Haha, good call on the sizing…not sure what I would do if it was too small! 🙂

    This dress is SO cute! I love the little bit of tulle peeking out! I’ve never ordered anything from Unique Vintage, but there are so many things I would like to order. Haha. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for their sales! And your piano purse is the best.. the photo of you playing it is adorable. 🙂

      Thank you Lindsey! I’ll have to let you know the next time I catch a sale. Their sale page on the website always seems to have a lot of items, and even when the are not running a special promotion a lot of the prices look really good! Shipping was pretty quick too…always a good thing! 🙂
