Dress:Vintage Brooch: Vested Bee Vintage

This dress is the result of a recent obsession of mine - knitted things! I've been, actively, procuring knitted skirts, shirts, dresses, etc. for the past few months now. This dress is so comfortable that I, sometimes, changed into it when I get home from work - a la Mr. Rogers minus the loafers and sweater.

About one of the accessories: I won this brooch a little while ago from Vested Bee Vintage. I've been wearing it with everything to add a little extra somethin' somethin'. Head on over to her site to find more terrific stuff.

Lovely. I really like that length on you, I think i've said before. The magazine I was just reading predicts the "midi" length is the new big thing! x

That brooch is so perfect for your dress, especially with that dainty necklace! Love the color of your dress although any knit material would be unbearable for me to wear right now in this heat.
