Smoky Topaz - Ghetto Trade Vintage Floral Dress - I surrender happily.
HYPE 18
  1. vintage floral dress

    ghetto trade

    , in Floral Dresses

hello lookbookers, i must say to you that there is nothing that gives me such a rush as buying new clothes. shopping makes me so giddy, even for days after! today i got a bunch of great clothes, and this dress is one of the items that mum picked up at ghetto trade. i looove it!
ANOTHER THING!!!!! i won the best vintage weardrobe contest look! i won a 50 dollar gift card for spanish moss vintage. i also had to do an interview after winning, so here it is!! ( i won with the look that i have on here called 'we can dream our lives away.)

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.
i am a sixteen year old lactose intolerant vegetarian, whom is overflowing with passion and love. i am obsessed with art, reading, thinking, traveling, magazines, painting, sketching, pottery, lockets, animals, dresses, and australian accents. astrologically, i am a total scorpio. a november baby. i can come off really cool, detached, and unemotional, but like the saying goes "still waters run deep," underneath my cool exterior is soul filled with intense passion, strong will and drive. i am constantly asking questions. not to question people exactly, but i just like to know how things work. call me curious george, if you will.
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING IN THE PHOTO AND HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO PUT IT TOGETHER?
In my winning look, i am wearing a floral dress from costa blanca, a long pinkish red BDG cardigan from urban outfitters, a pair of black flats, and a gold beaded & braided necklace from urban outfitters. i chose to wear the dress is so comfy! i always find myself cold though, so i threw on the cardigan for extra warmth. for the picture, i completed the look with a vintage luggage bag that my mom bought probably eight years ago from an auction. i actually use this sometimes for a luggage bag when i go to my dads! it fits so much!
WHERE DO YOU GAIN YOUR STYLE INSPIRATION?
I gain my style inspiration from everywhere! magazines, paintings, books, old family pictures, celebrities, pin up girls, marilyn monroe, other weardrobers, people on the street, you name it! for instance, take the quote by Coco Chanel, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." I only discovered this quote last night, but its what i already live by!
HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT GOES IN/OUT OF YOUR CLOSET?
Everything comes out of my closet! my clothes are everywhere, you wouldn't even know i had a floor underneath it all. in my mums opinion, my room is a living hell, but its just how i live. i like to see all of my stuff together in one place, like a collage.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING IN YOUR CLOSET? AND WHAT DO YOU FIND YOURSELF WEARING THE MOST?
the favourite thing in my closet is the dress i am wearing in the photo. my floral costa blanca dress is my go-to item, and no matter how hard i try to wear other things, i always find myself back in it!
WHAT GENERAL FASHION ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHER GIRLS YOUR AGE?
Don't go with the flow! break the mold, and be yourself. don't look to current trends and celebrities to tell you what's hot and what's not, decide yourself! sure, they can provide a little help and inspiration, but in the end, what is created by you is what is beautiful and unique.
