One should always make friends with your local vintage shop owner. Not only is she a great gal, but she also lets you have a sneak peek at all the new goodies for the season. And then you get first dibs on amazing pieces like this asian-inspired romper.
I'm pretty sure I gasped when I first saw it, and then was way too excited when it fit like a glove. (Can we just take a momen to thank the wonder that is a butt gusset? Seriously, why don't more clothing makers utilize them?!) I've been waiting for a good hot day to debut it, and Friday was just that. Unfortunately, all that humidity did cause a bit of a wrinkling issue, but life goes on.
The addition of the funky shoes made for a really bold look, but I love how it keeps the look feeling modern and not too vintagey. It's the best of both worlds, really.
