Bare Back



I bought this vintage dress in Camden Loch - its a little big, so I'm going to have it taken in and maybe up and perhaps dyed black. I adore the shoulder pads but I'm not so in love with acid wash, still, its fun to pair with a pink lip. Taking pictures was a hassle today because we've had an uncharacteristically cloudy, windy, nasty day for this month. At least it isn't cold.

dress, Vintage
necklace (worn as bracelet), vintage
booties, Nine West

really? i think the colour is fantastic

Zanita said...

Yeah its not too bad, I just feel acid wash has kind of been done... black or navy would be far more polished.

That dress is so cute! And I think you should keep it the acid wash...I think it kind of makes the dress...but I guess if you don't like it, your the one wearing it you know? Looks awesome though!

caylee said...

what an awesome dress.
i love the acid wash, but i can definitely see it being more practical once it's black.
i also love how the wind is blowing your hair in your face!

i love the colour! why don't you leave it as it is for now and dye it later? once you feel like the dress needs a change.

I actually really like the acid wash - not sure it would look as good in black.

Looks great paired with the boots!

I think acid wash is a fair bit more unique. Anyway it does look awesome with neon pink lips, I agree! You are a little inspiration :)

Ooooooh I love the cut - I even love the acid wash! But I can see dying it too - acid wash is a tad trendy. Anyway, these are great pictures. I love the lighting - mayhaps the clouds weren't so bad after all!

Mary said...

great find!
lovely back! :D

mmm...acid wash has been done and done again, but i still can't get enough of it :)

I think the acid wash is amazing but agree that it needs taking up. The length has got to match the acid wash if you get what I mean.

SUCH a gorgeous dress, don't dye it !

heleen said...

woooh gorgeous dress! I like the acid wash because it makes it a bit more 'rough', when it would be black it would probably be too fancy for my taste.

yOka said...

olga said...

MITICA ILLUSTRATIONS said...

wonderfull dress!! i have one similar on my blog!

Crystal said...

that dress is such a good find, plus windy days make great for great photos. your hair blows around and looks very editorial :)

Raych said...

Omg your style just kills me. You are stunning!

I think you should leave the dress as is, but if you do take it in, don't tighten it, instead, shorten it.

Would you like to exchange links? I love your blog.

I'm not usually a fan of jeans unless they are pants but you make them look H.O.T.T!! Great photo!

rachel kathleen said...

I get what you mean about acidwash being "done". But it's only really been done in torn jeans and high waisted pencil skirts - this dress is so unique! I think that dying it would ruin it. And how many black dresses are there around?!

hey lady!

ooh thanks for posting all these backstage shots! If you meet a hottie called Lauren Macksimovic she is one of my besties - tell her Bel said HIIIII! :)

OKAY for the dress - I THINK, the current colour is still hot, so wear that a few times...and THEN go black, so it's like a whole new garment again..just a thought. either way, SUCH a great find lady.
