Retro Red

It's Sunday evening yet I hardly have any Sunday blues because this is a short work week for me!  I was clever and decided to combine some vacation days with the 4th of July and the weekend.  So it's work Monday-Tuesday, play Wednesday-Sunday.  Woo!

dress: c/o eShakti | shoes: vintage (c/o mom) | necklace: gift

I love this dress.  It's super retro-cute and it's also 100% cotton which is soooo nice.  I love 100% cotton items, and they're not always that easy to find!  Many thanks goes to eShakti for sending me this sample dress to style.  It was so hard to choose just one style so after I received this one in the mail, I went on and bought myself an additional dress!  They've sucked me in with their generosity and design capabilities.

Where do you find your vintage-inspired dresses?
