Bloom under the rain

It was raining and I needed something to lift my spirit. A floral dress circa 1992. Can you believe it? This was one of my favorites and maybe the reason why I've kept it soooo long and I'm glad I did. I had originally worn this with tights underneath but the tropical weather allowed me to wear it tight-less. This is one of those baby doll dresses, empire cut waist with cap sleeves. The hem on the front is shorter than in the back thus giving it a longer appearance from the back. I soo love this dress, flow-y, feminine and comfortable.









dress: Contempo circa 1992 (USA)
shoes: American Eagle Ballet flats in plaid gift from cousin (USA)
necklace : pomander necklace circa 1992 (USA)
earrings: SM Department Store SM City Marilao
