Sunday Bests / / Denim Flare

Welcome back! This is the first post of my new fashion series “Sunday Bests!” This series will be filled with the outfits I wear to church on Sundays. Some of them will be fully vintage while others will be vintage inspired. I may not be able to post for this series every week, but I will try! I hope you find some inspiration in this series!

  This is one of my favorite fall and winter dresses. It fits just right, looks vintage, and weighs about thirty pounds! Ok, maybe not thirty, but it is heavy! It’s not quite a full-circle skirt, but it still works well for twirling. I couldn’t wear it for the longest time because I didn’t have any cuff-links for the sleeves. Without them, the sleeves just stay open and look sloppy. Later I found a pair of golden horse cuff-links at a flea market that were perfect for this dress. To finish off the outfit, I added a brown belt with a gold buckle (to match the cuff-links) and my new blue denim ballet slippers. I LOVE THESE SHOES! I got them on clearance at Target and have been aching to wear them with this dress! They are utterly dazzling, I think! Unfortunately, they aren’t very good for dancing as they are very flat, stiff, and quite pointy at the toe. Nevertheless, I adore them!

This dress is quite plain and I didn’t add a lot of accessories to it, so it stayed nice and simple.

Yes, these are the shoes! You may not be able to see it, but the laces go all the way past my ankle, just like real ballet shoes. They also remind me of a medieval style shoe for a lady-in-waiting! And yes, I still make up stories about knights and castles (thanks Princess Bride)!

Do you like The Princess Bride?

Do you like to dress up plain outfits or leave them simple?

    I didn’t read the Princess Bride till I was 13, almost 14. I helped a yellow flag sale (yard sale) my church did. And towards the end I was just sitting down waiting for my mom. And the pastor’s wife handed me that book cause it was one of the books on the table. I finished that book in two days. It captured me, and I was completely fooled with the trick the author pulls, “Old story his father told him.”

    The shoes are so elegant looking 🙂
