Happy ((Early)) 4th of July!
|Meet the Tie Sleeve Lucy Day Dress|
Say hello to the Tie Sleeve Lucy Day Dress in Red + White Polka Dot and Blue + White Polka Dot. Amelia: I have always been a huge fan of shirt-dresses, because they seem so effortlessly "put together". I'm so busy that it's nice to have pieces in my wardrobe that I know will be stylish and are still sensible for my hectic schedule. June: Like Amelia, I absolutely love shirt-dresses. When I first got into buying vintage, I bought a ton because they were so easy to find and very inexpensive. I feel like there's nothing better or more figure-flattering than a good, patterned shirt-dress.
One thing we noticed with this dress is that it is a tight fit across the bust. So depending on your bust and waist measurements you may have to size up accordingly. We recommend measuring your bust + waist and checking the size chart! Amelia got a small and found the bust a bit snug and June got a medium and took the waist in quite a bit (over 2 inches on each side) but the belt definitely helped as well!
Amelia: Another good thing about this dress is that it can be styled in so many different ways. Since we were celebrating the 4th of July early, it was a no-brainer to match blue accessories like my BAIT Footwear shoes, Erstwilder brooch and Luxlite earrings with the red dress. June: I love the versatility of this dress and the beautiful shade of cobalt blue. I can't wait to wear it on a casual Friday with a blazer or cardigan + flats for work.
Pinup on a BudgetLe Bomb Shop is a great company for the pinup on a budget! We put together a few of our favorite items from their shop to share with y'all! We LOVE the wiggle dresses. Check out the link to see the back of them, which is just as cute as the front. Also, the top row second from the left dress has convertible straps which can be worn four different ways (which is pretty awesome.)
June: Also, just to mention, I thought my mail lady lost my dress for the post, and Melissa was incredibly sweet + accommodating about everything while I was busy being frantic over the whole thing. Luckily my 3 houses down neighbor walked it over a day later, but they were incredibly amazing about communication and also accept returns + exchanges.
Some other awesome things worth mentioning are that they offer free U.S. shipping on all orders (no minimum) and free international shipping on orders over $250.
