SUNFLOWER SEEDS


(everything thrifted from head to toe except bag)
altered vintage sunflower dress, vintage denim bullets jacket, Zara faux fur leopard bag, old fishnets(obvi), vintage chunky lace ups, vintage cross necklace, Romwe spiked cuff, eBay evil eye chain ring harness, DIY spiked leather wrap cuff, Target socks, old beanie and random rings

Oh the 90s sunflower dress. You can find a bagillion of these at your local thrift store/charity shop but it's all about finding the right fit and print for me. Everything was perfect about this dress...the black with the bold realistic sunflowers down to the pleated babydoll effect. The length was a bit too Amish for me, I like my thighs to breathe, so I hacked it! I literally cut the dress before walking out the door...seriously, gotta love my last minute fishtail!
I  added denim to the mix and since I decided to go there I might well bust out the chunky shoes too.

Ugh I love grunge revival cause you can dress down but still be overly fashionable!

Love it? Let me hear ya!

Absolutely gorgeous! I always look for a sunflower dress and I am yet to come across one smaller then a size 16... I may just have to take one in.
You look great :)

Sheena said...

I wish Australian vintage stores had an endless supply of sunflower prints i've struggled to find any, which is depressing so would probably explain why I have resorted to growing them in the garden. x

The reason why I love my black skin tone is that dark colors look good on me. Your sunflower dress looks amazing!
