Floreat Monroe Dress


Feminine and lovely vintage 1940s cream and celery green ditsy floral print midi dress. This vintage 40s dress features a scoop neckline that will show off your decolletage so nicely, short puff sleeves, tapered in waist that then flares out near the hip, perfect for you gals with an hourglass figure. Side metal zip closure.

How To Wear It: This vintage 40s floral dress would be lovely paired with a messy updo, a swish of lipstick and pearly drop earrings for an elegant date night or semi formal look. To dress it down for a casual afternoon spent at the farmer's market, pair this with espadrille sandals and your hair in Heidi braids and wear large tortoise frame sunglasses for a bit of glamour.

Sustainable Clothing Care

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.

  • Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
  • Wear your garments more than once before laundering
  • Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
  • If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
  • Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
  • Spot clean garments immediately
  • Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
  • Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
