Too Dolled Up?



i bouhgt this cute little 70s does 50s sundress some weeks ago and i wore it a lot since ... here are two of the outfits ... summery version:  huge spotted dress: flea market // leather belt: old h&m // shoes: deichmann // 50s necklace: thrifted in the states // 40s bag: ebay  // bracelet: flea market ... fall-ish outfit: cardi: thrifted // my beloved 'worn-to-dust' flats: primark // straw bag: flea market

i bought this dress on katermarket here in berlin from a friend. she told me that she really loves this dress but everytime she was planning to wear it, she felt like being too dolled up. i really was surprised when i heard her words, because i got this dress as an everyday piece. it's fun how different people feel about the same clothes ...

I love your black and white shoes and your black and white cardi. When did you buy those shoes. Do you think Deichmann has them still in stock? They would match with almost every vintage outfit, wouldn't they?

Love the first pair of shoes! One can never be too dolled up.

I am of the opinion that you can never be too dolled up. I love the dress. Why only save it for very special occasions and never get to enjoy it!

It's funny because when I just wear one of my casual every day shirtwaist dresses people ask - "where are you going?" - since we live in a society where looking your best basically means putting on skinny jeans and a tshirt just putting on a nice dress makes people think you're going somewhere fancy!

That dress is BEAUTIFUL and you are very lucky to get it from your friend, I'm sure you will give it a lot of wear :D I also LOVE LOVE LOVE your shoes, they are gorgeous!

No way, it's perfect, you can dress it up or down!
It's a sweet frock! X

Too dolled up? What language is this? It doesn't exist in my vocabulary! You look gorgeous. x

I think you are dolled up just enough! Polka dots are always an excellent choice, you look fab in both versions :)

Thank you, I'm going to look for them this afternoon. Maybe I can find them at our Deichmann. And 20 €, that's a real bargain!

Ich weiß ganz genau was du meinst! ^^ Teilweise kommen Freundinnen zu mir und fragen, ob die Bluse, dasnKleid etc. nicht etwas zu viel für einen bestimmten Alass wären. Ich schau mir das Outfit dann meistens an und denke mir: "Okay, du trägst jetzt ne Jeans mit einer Satin Bluse und Ballerinas. Wir gehen ins Theater. was zur Hölle soll daran "zu viel" sein?! Da geht doch noch viiiel mehr :D "
Man hat als Frau so viele Möglichkeiten und die meisten Damen nutzen sie einfach nicht...

Oh, please! That dress is beautiful, even to go to buy bread at the corner store. I'm also curious how the clothes affect people ... many people ask me if I'm going to a wedding when I was wearing with my dress ... so much fun!

blau und polkadots das allein sind schon 2 gute gründe genug um dieses Kleid zu lieben, find es auch nicht zu dolled up, aber gut ich bin kein mass der dinge, manche Leute sagen mir regelmäßig ich bin overdressed;) zum Glück sind wir nicht alle gleich und erstens muss es ja einem selbst gefallen und zweitens hat es auch keinen sinn schöne Kleider zu haben und dann nie zu tragen weil sie zu"schade" sind

People would always ask me why I was dressed up even when I wore the simplest of dresses. People are weird! This dress is a perfect day dress. Why look boring and frumpy when you can look adorable and feel good in a great dress?!

it would be too dolled up for my current lifestyle, but there has definitely been years of my life when this would have worked perfectly.
