Recently, I have been really inspired by textile design. I know that Scandinavia has been known for their clever fabric prints and is one of the best places to study textile design.
I was out at the thrift store not too long ago when I found the dress I wore today. To my surprise, it was made in Sweden. I was really drawn by the complementary color scheme. I've never been too keen on floral prints, but I felt like this was not obnoxious. It was an ankle length dress, so I decided to shorten the hem.
Dress: random thrift store (Dallas)
Brooch: 1960's via my mom
Sandals: Seychelles via Nordstrom Rack
I paired this dress with plain brown sandals and a 1960's enamel flower brooch. I thought that the neutral colors of the brooch would tone the loudness of the dress. (Hope that makes sense) I took this pin from my mom's millinery supplies. She had forgotten she had a small stash of enamel flower brooches.
