Dead Stock

I got a lot of compliments on this outfit at work today. And really, what's not to love about a mid-1960's dress and jacket set that hasn't ever been worn until today?? I found this at the Vintage Fashion Expo over the weekend, and the sales lady told me it was 'dead stock' -- apparently an item that is unworn but vintage. I'm pretty certain that I gasped upon rooting this out of a tightly-packed rack of garments; I may have even emitted a squeal of joy as well. Even Mark had to agree that this one was made for me.

I was extra motivated to wear this set today because with the increasingly springy weather, I feel like my window of opportunity for wearing a thick, lined wool dress might be closing for the season. And anyway, this bright lemon yellow is just perfect for spring, while the dress itself is plenty warm and insulated for the still chilly temperatures.

I think I prefer the outfit with the jacket on but left open, though I've included a picture of it closed as well so that you can see the shape of the jacket. I also love the fact that the jacket is designed to be flasher-length -- that is, longer than the dress it's made to be worn over.

Turtleneck: H&M
Tights: Sock Dreams
Boots: Fly London

You mean your work colleagues noticed! Oh the shock, oh the horror! But how could they not notice how perfect this is on you?!

And, if you are concerned about this gorgeous number not getting any wear in the next few months, send it over my way...it'll be winter soon in my neck of the woods!

Great colour combo and the shape is perfect for you.

Beyond perfect for you, I love the color combined with the cut of the dress and the complemetary coat, but I have to say I love the dress alone more than anything else. So flattering!

Also, I am seething with jealousy now.
