80's Blues

I currently have 41 fans on Google Connect, 2 on BlogLovin', 20 on Twitter and 23 on Facebook ... THANK YOU all so much for the love!  I really enjoy blogging and promise to bring you more interesting posts.  Better photos are coming soon - I just got a new camera!  :)

I've got the BLUES in a good way!  :)  I know that stripes are definitely in this year, but I purchased this lovely stripey blue vintage dress well before knowing of that trend.  I am an advocate of purchasing what you love and not of what's necessarily in season.  Fashion is about setting your own trends and marching to the beat of your own fashionable drum and that’s what I did in this number!  :)  

I purchased this dress from a vintage store in Jacksonville, FL for about $30 back in January 2011 and I adore the poofy sleeves and large pockets.  The back of the dress has 5 large buttons.  I wish I would've had my Hubby take a photo of the back of the dress.  The original dress length was longer, but I had my mom take off a few inches to have the dress hit a little below the knee with heels (thanks again mama!).
I paired the dress with a vintage bone crocheted belt that my mom gave me years ago.  Also, I wore high-back Aldo pumps in a bone color.  I’m so in love with these shoes…they’re very different and are certainly me! 
What do you all think of the total look?  I would love to hear from you.
Fashionably yours - Shellena
