dress: vintage via Think Twice - wedges: Texto - straw purse: Pimkie - sunglasses: c/o Oasap
Some time has passed since I was almost exclusively shopping my gear for pennies at Think Twice. The whole obviously vintage look doesn't appeal to me as much anymore, and it is just too easy to pick up garbage when it costs less than a sandwich. But I still think there are treasures to be found while thrifting, and this dress is definitely one of my luckiest finds in all of my thrifting years. It is obviously hand embroidered, 100% cotton and straight from Mexico: the kind of piece they'd try and recreate at Forever21 or H&M, but without the authenticity. And yes, I'm enough of a postmodernist to not bat an eye at talking about authenticity even though you might as well see me wearing a knock off tomorrow. SORRY NOT SORRY. Whenever I see it, I imagine some really glamourous, free spirited 70s woman picking this up while sojourning in South America.
I do think you're supposed to go with the vibe of beautiful pieces like this one. I would try and "fashion it up" by wearing it with like, sneakers. A dress like this needs a solid 70s shoe, like a wedge or a clog. I'd pair it with something like these classic Le Comptoir Scandinave clogs in a heartbeat!

And no belts. A sack dress should be free to be a sack dress. AMIRITE? Nice and airy for hot, Mexican summer days.
