Dress: Vintage / Necklaces: Olive + Piper
The other day I was marching around Robson Street (the main shopping street in downtown Vancouver) as a woman on a mission. I wanted a unique piece of clothing, something new, something DIFFERENT for crying out loud. Finding something that fulfills said criteria in Vancouver is next to impossible because we love to all do and WEAR the same damn things here. If you have ever walked into an Aritzia you will understand this uniquely “Vancouver” phenomenon.
After shopping my way through all the usual suspects with no success, I happened upon a small vintage shop. It was like a beacon of shining light amongst the mass-produced crap we normally buy. In highschool I used to always shop vintage and found some of the coolest pieces. So, I decided to give vintage another go and was THE MOST excited about what I found!
Let’s start by pointing out the fact that I was clearly born in the wrong era. I am a 70’s girl at heart — so naturally I was drawn to the most hippie dress in the shop. 😜
BUT NOW I AM SO HAPPY. I AM A LITTLE FLOWER 70’S PRINCESS IN THIS DRESS. 😁 😁 😁
Anyways………… *ahem*.. Next time you are out shopping — try something different! Go vintage. It also feels like you are hunting for treasure, which makes the experience that much more fun.
