Delores

Unique Vintage 1950s Style Mustard & Black Dot Delores Swing Dress

Yesterday was the first official day of fall and for once it actually felt like it!  The temperatures didn't rise above 80, which for us is quite cool.  Bianca and I took advantage of the lovely day by visiting one of her favorite parks.  She happened to meet a little boy there and they became fast friends.  After two and a half hours I had to peel her away from the park and her new friend.  I often feel guilty for not giving her a sibling, so I justify that choice by letting her play with other kids her age as much as possible.  I mean, so far it's worked out just fine!

While the Delores dress from Unique Vintage is a fan favorite, it's the first one I've ever owned.  I was really excited to try it!  I can't help but fall for a dress with polka dots and a mustard colored background.  It really embodies the fall season, which just so happens to be my favorite.  The fabric is a stretch bengaline, which is perfect for hugging your curves.  Since it has sleeves, it's important to have stretch fabric to not only accommodate your arms, but give you a full range of motion as well.  I'm always saddened when I buy a dress and I can't lift my arms up.  It's a total deal breaker!  While this dress is a little too low cut for my comfort, it's nothing a safety pin can't fix.  The skirt is quite full, but it doesn't need a petticoat.  I usually wear an underskirt with full bodied styles but the Delores looked perfect on its own.  I definitely understand why everyone loves this dress so much!

I'm looking forward to a work-free weekend with my family.  Our home is officially in escrow, so we're starting to get organized for this move.  I seriously cannot wait.  Our home is so perfect and beautiful, I can't wait to make it ours!  If everything goes as planned, we will start this new chapter in our home in November.  Fingers will remain crossed until our escrow closes!
