Hello! I am so so pleased to announce, that thanks to the support of people like you, I won ModCloth's Marvelous Manicure Contest! I absolutely cannot wait to see how the ladies in ModCloth's Nail Klub interpretation of my nail design for the blog, and am planning on what I should get from ModCloth with my $75 gift card (any suggestions?) *_*

Meanwhile, how gorgeous is my dress?


DRESS Vintage AZURE BAG c/o Oasap TIGHTS Forever 21 SHOES Kohls

My mom actually bought it at a thrift store in the late 90s, and I am so glad she did! The detailing on the dress is just so beautiful! It was made by "House of Bianchi", which opened it's doors in the late 40s! I am no vintage clothing expect, so what do you think the date on this dress is?
Meanwhile, I am completely in love with my new bag from Oasap! The color is gorgeous, and the inside of the bag is just roomy enough to fit everything I would need in one place! The shoulder strap is detachable, so you can use it as a hand or shoulder purse. This is my new go-to purse for every occasion, I love it that much *_*

I hope everybody had a safe and fun fourth of July, and things might be a tad bit quieter around here for a while! Until then,

KISSES,
Kailey

  6. That is a gorgeous dress, it looks stunning on you! What pretty details. I love the purse as well, I am in dire need of a real purse (all I've ever used is tiny pouches or tote bags) and that one is looking like a great option!

    Congrats again on winning the contest! I've never bought anything from ModCloth, everything is so wonderful, I wouldn't know how to even start deciding what to get! So good luck with that! ;)

  13. Congratulations! And that dress is GORGEOUS. Generally plastic/nylon zippers weren't used until the 60s or so. That's about as helpful as I can be!

  44. I love history of fashion, but it's hard to date it, the label seems quite modern, maybe the 60's or the late 50's, but I can't guess well from the photos, anyway it's stunning!!
    This outfit is amazing, I love how you accessorized this precious dress!
    Congratulations on winning the competition, I don't have a facebook account and I was really sorry that I couldn't vote!

  64. That dress is amazing! The length and collar are very 70s but the nipped waist gives me a 50s feel. Probably a 70s does 50s type of dress, I LOVE IT!

  69. That's a great dress! Because it has a nylon zipper and the style is Victorian/Edwardian revival, it's most likely going to be from the 1970s.
