Scrolling down #vintagedress on Instagram, I found Blue Fennel Vintage, a vintage clothing and accessories store on Etsy owned by Stephanie. I fell in love with a skirt from the 60s and I made the purchase without giving it much thought. The listing said the waist was 28″ minimum, two inches bigger than my natural waist but I knew I’d alter it. Not really having an occassion to wear it, she has been hanging safely in my closet, unfortunately.
About a month later, Stephanie posted what I like to call a “skirt teaser” and I adored the lavender flowers thinking they would pop with my hair color. She told me I could pay in installments and I took advantage of her offer. A week and a half later, I was the happy owner of this amazing dress.
Blue Fennel often has great sales and that’s how I got this beauty:
The fabric is a little warmer than what I usually wear, so I’m waiting for cooler weather to show it off. What do I mean by cooler weather? 70°-80°. Ah, the joys of living on a tropical island.

I hope you find the vintage dress[es] of your dreams! What are your favorite vintage shops?
