Black and White Hamilton

Unique Vintage 1950s Style Black & White Stripe Hamilton Swing Dress Southern California Belle

Black and white stripes are my weakness, so I guess it's no surprise that this Unique Vintage dress found its way to my closet.  While this dress can easily be styled for cooler weather, it really strikes me as a fun summer dress.  I've been wearing it non-stop ever since it arrived and I'm sure you can see why!

The Hamilton dress features self-tie straps, covered buttons across the bodice, a full gathered skirt with one exposed side pocket, a rope belt, and a side zip closure.  Because it's made from cotton, it's perfect for withstanding those hot summer days.  I decided to size up to a S in this dress (my pink one is an XS) and I'm happier with the larger size.  While the waist is a bit big, the bust is just right.  If you tend to be between sizes (or have a larger bust) I would definitely recommend sizing up.  I wish this dress came in all colors of the rainbow, it really is one of my favorite styles!

I'll be taking it easy today because I unexpectedly ended up at a Nine Inch Nails show last night.  I hadn't seen them since I was almost nine months pregnant with Bianca, so it was one of those must-see shows!  Unfortunately, I'm also in my 30's and have a toddler/dogs who don't let me sleep so I can't hang like I used to.  I have a feeling my couch is going to get a lot of love today!
