I bought this dress on sale from asos recently. (Boo, not secondhand, I know...) I had been on the hunt for a white tunic dress with angelic bell sleeves for months and had no luck with my usual thrift and vintage sources. While I have great success thrifting accessories, separates, shoes, and outerwear, I find that solid dresses in my preferred shape and size are the most difficult to score. But dresses like this make the best backdrop for all the interesting vintage costume jewelry, scarves, and bags I like to wear.
These deep purple tights came from Ruche years ago. They've held up amazingly well, considering how often I've worn them. I am very sorry to see that Ruche is closing. I hadn't shopped there in a long time, but I have fond memories of their pretty lookbooks. Additionally, the headband I wore at my wedding came from Ruche. So many businesses and online shops come and go, but it's a shame to see such a lovely spot on the internet come to an end.
I don't have much of a social life, but we have some events coming up this spring - a party, the odd evening out, and a graduation - where this outfit will be just the thing. I'm a complete sucker for a little white dress.
