Maximus! Maximus!

Dress: Vintage, rescued from the dress-up bin at Cary's aunt's house
Jacket: LOFT
Shoes: Tiny shoe shop in Melk, Austria
Belt: Target
Earrings: Gift from Cary
Necklace: Brian Moody

I love love love this dress, not least of all because I found it in a dress-up bin amongst 80s prom dresses. I wore it about a month ago with pearls and red flats, but today I wanted to make it a little tougher-looking, a little less June Cleaver.

So I added the denim jacket and necklace from Brian, which seemed a little tougher than pearls. As the pièce de résistance, I put on gladiator sandals, because nothing says tough like shoes you might wear while you are fighting/being fed to the lions. And I think it worked - I mean, what gladiator didn't wear a dress from 1960 while fighting for his life in the Colosseum? Right?


  1. Love that dress! I love how you dressed it down with the jacket and sandals. Perfect combo of dressy and casual!

  2. Thanks, Erica! I meant to come back a couple of days ago and say that. Thanks for visiting - I love your blog, so I'm excited to see you over here!

  3. Your blonde bob combined with this dress reminds me so much of Twiggy! Such a great find!!

    Thanks for sharing and stopping by! :)
