I never would have thought that a vintage floral button through maxi dress would work paired with a blazer, but this is a combination I discovered while in San Juan (I can hear you thinking - "when is she ever going to stfu about Puerto Rico?" Answer: never). We went out at night for cocktails, I was wearing a maxi dress to deal with the heat and I just slipped on my blazer to shield my shoulders from the incessant airconditioning everywhere - et voila, a perfect combination was born! I absolutely love it. Unexpected, but not as forced as the whole leather-jacket-with-femme-dress shtick that's been done to death. This look, however, is FRESH TO DEATH.

Now that I see these pictures, I can't believe how long I doubted before buying this dress. It was only 3€ in the monthly Think Twice vintage sales, and yet I was going back and forth in my mind like "will I ever wear this? Isn't it dowdy"? Uhm yes and uhm no: it's the most gloriously perfect garment for my personal preferences, and it looks sexy as fuck while still being somewhat elegant. Can you say leg action? Also, it's 100% cotton. If thrifting and vintage shopping has taught me one lesson, it is to never walk out on anything made out of cotton or silk.
