03 Oct Vintage Anniversary
Hubs and I just celebrated our third wedding anniversary in one of our favorite places, Pismo Beach. We always like to go out to one super fancy dinner and this is THE fancy dress in my closet. Not to say it’s the only one, but it is certainly a fan favorite and a great way to achieve a vintage meets modern look.
Would you believe it’s a bridesmaid dress? I mean, I didn’t buy it for a wedding but it is from David’s Bridal. Still though, crazy right? And bonus–I recently had to have it taken in from a size 22 to an 18. Nice to know something that could flatter me 35+ pounds ago can still do it’s job with a little tweaking.
I really played up the 50s vibe of the dress with three-strand pearls (which was my first anniversary gift from hubs) and a floral monogram cuff from Anthropologie. The modern touches are few but bold–a colored smokey eye and pointy-toe flats is my only peak into the present but it really packs a punch!
