I love vintage-inspired pieces. Halter necklines, cinched waists, circle skirts- all right up my ally! When I saw this sweet little cream-colored shirt dress from ModCloth, I had major heart eyes.
I adore the halter neckline, with the notched lapel detail. It is not something you see often, and I was instantly drawn to it! I also adored the buttons that go down to the skirt, giving even more of that shirt style. I love the thick, retro-inspired waist belt that matches the dress perfectly. It really pulls your waist in, and emphasizes the flair of the skirt- giving that vintage silhouette. The back of the dress is smocked, so it is super comfortable as well! The cream colored fabric is adorned with the sweetest eyelet lace details, which is a fun and feminine detail for this "shirt" dress. I am typically a dress size 2, I ordered the small and it fits like a glove! This dress makes me feel like Jennifer Nettles in the Babe music video in her 50's getup, or Rachel McAdams in The Notebook- which is really all I want in life.
