Vintage Florals



1. Forever 21 Sweet Happenings Woven Dress $19.80
2. Forever 21 Garden Spaghetti Strap Dress $22.80
3. Topshop Floral Stripe Vest Dress by Love $60
4. Topshop Grid Floral Oversized Tunic $90
5. Topshop Floral Cup Bust Dress by Love $68
6. Forever 21 Sunny Florals Sun Dress $22.90

As summer quickly approaches, I find myself gravitating toward feminine floral prints that remind me of clothing my mom wore when I was young. I saw that Piperlime is calling them "Vintage Florals" and that's exactly what I love about this look. They're pretty and feminine, but they also look detailed and unique. These are a few of my current favorite "vintage floral" tops and dresses.

Jessica said...

Of course I love the two most expensive!

Sweet Southern Prep said...

These are so pretty! Yes, vintage floral is the perfect description. As usual, I gravitated toward the most expensive one, the E & J one.

I love their line! For as horrid as Mark Kate dresses, they sure have a great collaboration, when it comes to clothes for their line. :)

Jess said...

What great finds! Love the top from Elizabeth and James - just wish I could afford it!

I like 5 and 6. I'm very into ultra fem florals right now. I just can't help it, the sun comes out and I want to bloom. (get it, bloom, I'm so funny, funny). You are so good at providing a variety of options within the same theme. It also helps that the price points vary.

Erica said...

I’m so loving these prints lately as well. I think I may have to take a little trip to Forever 21 this weekend to snatch up # 6! ; )

I keep seeing this term "vintage" and I'm trying to figure out exactly what it means. I get the floral part, but what about vintage? I think any of these would look great on you by the way!

Nikki said...

I love all these dresses! You always pick the best ones. #5 is my favorite, so so cute.

I love them all! I have been absolutely loving floral dresses lately and have been trying to find the perfect one to buy.

Marcie said...

I saw that add on Piperlime too. I really like #3. It would go great with tights for those chilly nights. In the Bay Area we don't stay as warm as LA ;)

be still my heart...i love #4

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

The sleeveless Tokyo top...I want I want... I saw other colors/patterns too.. I repeat, I want I want :)

this free bird said...

Isn't it interesting how spring and summer brings out the love of florals in us? #4, #4, #4 for me please!!

I have to say I've seen the E&J up close and I just don't see how the price tag justifies the garment. I understand it's MK&O's line, but still? With all the other options and for what you get for the $$ I'd take any of the others.

ps - #2 for $22.80?? Hel-lo-ooooo

SabinePsynopsis said...

Totally struggling with florals, but these are some cute picks. Especially Topshop #1 is lovely.

Hello~

I just wanted to say hi and thank you for stopping by my 'place'! It's so funny because we have many things in common (read your 'favorites' post). I LOVE licorice too; in fact, I have 2 packages sitting in my pantry right now that I've been dying to eat [for breakfast:)]...but I actually bought it for the kids AND us, so I've been pushing my temptations back!

Melanie said...

Love #5. So cute.

Hey Valerie,

Just saw your comment and realized that I completely forgot to mention the 'item in common' that I thought was the funniest...your favorite music. Seriously if/when I fill out that section of my profile, I could see myself putting the exact same thing (except I'd probably put "Grandpa" instead:)).

Great choices! I love how feminine florals equate to summer. There's nothing better than a day in the sun!
