Vintage Sundress: An Outfit Video

A Vintage Sundress

Ah September. Every year all of Los Angeles swelters this month, but for the past two years my favorite backless vintage sundress has come to the rescue. I bought this dress from the wonderful Citizen Rosebud two summers ago and have worn in the intense heat of both Sacramento and Palm Springs. Now you can see the full circle skirt swirl and twirl as I walk. It’s really something. Normally I don’t feel all that sexy when it’s hot out. I just feel sweaty. But this cotton sundress is so lightweight it catches every breeze. In the outfit video I wear it with sandals and a ladylike purse. The video is a little over a minute long and set to music. I hope you enjoy it.

      Hi Josep-Maria. I’m so glad you like the dress! There are links in the post to two other outfit posts featuring the dress, unfortunately I think my writing was unclear. I’m really sorry! I’ll send them to you on Google Plus.

    What a lovely dress. That cute little pink colour in each flower. A great buy. Fits you like a glove. I love how your husband films you. He caresses your skin with the view of the camera. He really does. And what a skin. Unbelievable. Please enjoy it. It might “go” when you get older.
    First thing that popped up in my mind (sorry about this), she is not wearing a bra, my goodness, how does she do this??? Honestly, you defy ageing.

      Thanks you Greetje. This video was particularly romantic. As for the dress, yes, it’s bra-free. I don’t really like the sensation, but the bodice on the dress is so tight that it keeps everything kind of in place. As for the skin, I’m doing my best to keep it looking good! Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen…

    Forgot to say: love the bag. Works so well with the dress.

      Thanks Greetje. My mom bought it for me earlier this summer. I thought it would be perfect for late summer – early fall, because it’s so warm here.
