Benny and Joon

Outfit Details: Dress & Bag: Vintage//Floral Crown: DIY//Necklace: Target//Tights: Modcloth//Shoes: Gift from Mother




I found this dress at a vintage shop the other week in Philly and pretty much knew I was going to snag it up very quickly as I had one very similar as a high schooler in the 90s.  So I guess you could say it was kinda an ode to my teenage self.  Benny and Joon, Empire Records, My So-Called Life, Friends, the Gin Blossoms and Pearl Jam...Meg and Tom and ooh that Johnny Depp. The days of awesome romantic comedies and good radio are long gone, but well this corduroy baby doll dress...I think it's here to stay:)

Love bunches,

  19. Oh my goodness Marisa, I feel like I always repeat myself but you seriously put together the most beautiful outfits. That dress is gorgeous on you, and don't even get me started on the tights!

  20. The colour on that dress is beautiful and corduroy is such a great fabric for winter - nice and cosy! I'm wearing a corduroy shirt that I've borrowed from my partner - nice and warm! And, yes, those pictures were Instagram - it's a winner, isn't it?!
