Style Staple: Vintage Dress

I am obsessed with Ruche. Specifically I am obsessed with their vintage dresses. AFFORDABLE vintage dresses. Seriously. Any and every dress on this site rocks my world. I forced Serge to bookmark Ruche, told him "anything in medium" and he's already bought me two dresses, one of which you can see in the photos here.

I like this one because it feels a tad conservative, librarian-ish even, what with the necktie but also kind of sexy as it's on the short side, but not too short. Sexy librarian: the ultimate porno plot. Oh, and the super forgiving elastic waistband is a mom's best friend. I wear this dress to drop off the kids at preschool, to the grocery store, out for drinks with friends and even in the garden pulling weeds because it also feels a bit like a country sundress.

It's called the Georgina Checkered Dress (in a medium, which fits just right for me at 5'3 and 135 pounds) and the best part of all is this dress costs $39.99. You can find it and a ton of awesome spring/summer vintage dresses at totally reasonable prices on Ruche. Check it out.

P.S. I am in no way affiliated with Ruche nor is this post sponsored by them. I just dig their stuff. Also, thanks to Serge for pretending to be a photographer "A leetle to the left, YES. YES! BEEE-YOOO-TEEE-FULL. Make love to the camera!" while I pretended to be a model.

P.P.S. Comment #4, Adriana, was the winner of the Bibbles Bib and will be contacted via email. She's pregnant with her first baby, so it's kinda cool that she won. Yay Adriana!
