Perfect Vintage Shirt Dress

I recently found two vintage shirt dresses that I love.  I'm wearing one of them today.  I've always liked this look, and this dress is perfect.  It's actually made of polyester, so it's very wash and wear.  I'm definitely taking this to Tokyo this summer….


Isn't this an incredible belt?  It's very, very heavy.   I have recently purchased several belts from a private collection in LA.  All of the belts were purchased in the 80's, and it's a really interesting grouping.  I'm excited to put these belts on Close up
Carrying my favorite oversized Chloe bag.  Those are not Jane's glasses, they're my bifocals, and sadly, I need new lenses for them–I'm really going blind!

These Pradas are almost old enough to be vintage–but I still wear them all the time.  One of my favorite pairs of Pradas….Shirt dress
I put several new things on the Group chains

    You look wonderful! I have that same Stephen Dweck amber bead necklace – you make me want to wear it layered with chains (I normally wear it by itself, it seems like such an showy piece).

    The dress is beautiful Judy! You wear it well, and I love how you accessorized it. Sadly, I need new glasses, too… I’m waiting to find a pair I really like.

    I love the print of the dress! You got me thinking about shirtdresses, and your whole look has a stylish summer-y vibe.

    I never got a ChloΓ© heloise bag because a lot of people had problems with the handle breaking… hope yours isn’t giving you any trouble!

    the chemisier dress is an evergreen, always feminine and glamorous. I really like the animal print in shades of blue which seems more an abstract design that an animal mantle and the way you’ve paired the look with these beautiful accessories is amazing! I love the vintage Trifari Collier … I’ve seen has already been sold! Bravo Judy, you’are doing such a great research job!

    Hope you don’t mind me saying, but I think your best accessory is your lovely skin. From a pale girl who was always self-conscious of her “white” skin (growing up in Texas with all the tanned girls was hard), thanks for being a role model!

    Love shirtdresses! I’ve found myself having to hold menus, etc. a bit farther away than usual! It really hits home that I’m actually getting older…dammit! I have a gold link belt that’s about 3 inches wide. It’s 26″…sadly…I am no longer!

    Judy Judy I’m going to Japan this summer as well, from May 19th-28th. I’m actually so excited, my first time! I’ve been dreaming to go there since I was a kid. Is it possible to know your schedule, when do you plan to go? It would be awesome if I can run into you and Jane!

    You look like an artist!
    I’ve never really thought of piling on bold necklaces, belts and cuffs at the same time — usually just stick to one or two, but this inspires me to change that.

    You are BEAUTIFUL!
    I wouldn’t be able to tell the ‘age’ of those Pradas…Tory Burch just came out with bags and shoes, all pyramid studded. Giles Deacon for Mulberry also never stopped with these studs.
    I’m loving your outfit!

    It’s obvious where Jane gets her fashion taste from. You both have impeccable style!! And though your other daughter may not get much picture time, she is absolutely adorable! That bunny cake that she made is amazing! I wouldn’t be surprised to see her on one of those cake challenges show on food network =P
    Please post where you end up shopping in Tokyo! I’m going to Japan this summer as well and am basically a Tokyo shopping virgin!

    Judy, this may be my favorite yet. I just absolutely love all the accessories — the bracelets and necklaces are beautiful and perfectly layered, and the glasses look fantastic. Don’t even get me started on the belt! Heaviness could be a good thing — it’ll have you working out without even trying! Bravo all around!!!

    That dress is perfection! And that belt! Oh my! Agreed on the Pradas – I actually have the same exact pair and still wear them all the time, too. So cool and versatile – I think they look great with black.
    Love the blog! Thanks!

    A problem? – I worry about the charming chef’s tobacco addiction – he should live a long life – he’s does good stuff, but at the rate he puffing them down, who knows?
