O.O.T.D: Everything en Blanc

The Deets:
Sunglasses: Vintage
Earrings: Vintage
Costume Pearls: Gift
Belt: Thrifted
Lace Jersey Dress: H&M
Ankle Boots: Vintage
Beaded Clutch: Vintage

This was the outfit I slapped together for Dîner en Blanc in Niagara on the Lake the other night.  I don't really wear any white because I am so pale, so I hit the malls last Saturday to find something to wear. I was almost out of options when I found this lace jersey dress at H&M.  All white, inexpensive, and I can dye it and/or repurpose it after the event.  Score. 

The sunglasses were also purchased this past weekend, at the St.Lawrence Antiques Market. We had some time to kill before a movie, and Ephraim spotted these. They're a mother-of-pearl-esque look, with rosy lenses; uhmazing. Also they were $16.  BEST EVER! This is my second pair of vintage sunglasses, and I must say I'm quite smitten!

Do any of you like to wear vintage sunglasses, or have prescription lenses in vintage frames? I think they make such a great statement!



  1. Beautiful glasses! What an absolute bargain!


  2. Lovely outfit, I fear wearing white, mostly because I am still a messy child deep down! I have one pair of vintage sunglasses and I love them almost too much, it's such a shame it's not very sunny here at the moment so I haven't worn them much!

    1. Thanks Rebecca! Haha there was a jar of blueberry sauce at the function that night that NOBODY wanted to handle, lest it should explode and turn everything purple. I'm still shocked I came out unscathed, but then I restricted myself to white wine juuuust in case.
      Thanks for stopping by!
