I have been trolling Etsy for similar cotton shirtwaist dresses from the 50s/60s — this is why! They are perfect, modest for summer. I have an ancient one, green, that I've patched together so many times it's really not decent to wear anymore, though I still do — The Sartorialist would not approve! It's beyond grunge; the fabric has worn off the buttons, etc. I had another, in blue, dropped it at the drycleaner's, and someone stole the buttons off it!
What a vision! I love the turned up collar of the gorgeous, flattering dress and the matching sneakers, I also love the way she is holding her arms and the delightful (and delighted) expression on her face – she is delight itself!
Classy and classic! Love the simple chic sneakers as well. Nice to see a young woman looking like a lady rather than another disheveled downtown cool outfit that are getting a bit passe. Bring back the effort girls!!!
