Modern with retro flair! The Colette Penny was my last summer hoorah before I transitioned over to Fall and Winter pieces.
This particular October in San Francisco has been super warm, so I’ve gotten the opportunity to wear this dress more frequently than I anticipated!
The vintage-inspired selling points for me were the following:
- The cummerbund (super 50s and I love how it looks like my waist is smaller than it is haha!)
- The A-line skirt (flattering and very 40s in its simplicity)
- Buttons all the way to the top (very vintage-office-chic)
The change I would probably recommend right off the bat is…
to add hooks, rather than snaps, to the cummerbund “belt”, especially since it ends right where your arm might pop off the belt (having the hooks there just makes more sense to me, anyway!)
