Lady Like Construction

This dress is one of my beautiful North Carolina vintage finds from Something Old Something New. There is the prettiest detailing in this dress with the intricately embroidered floral design around the skirt and bust area. I kept my accessories pretty lady like for this look, with a delicate bow handbag and sweet suede wedges. This super feminine style was such a fun contrast with the dirty construction site I just knew I had to share it with you in these photos. Surprisingly, I didn't even get that dirty while clambering around on this huge machinery.
