Inspired by storybook tales and a love for ballet, this Spring cream midi dress is perfect for happily ever afters...

Perfect for making a feminine statement, this storybook vintage inspired buttercream midi dress features short puffed sleeves, wide pleat accents on the skirt, and long delicate ties you can wear criss-crossed across the body and wrapped around your waist. This dress is bump friendly since the waist is cut quite loose and open and can be adjusted depending on how you configure the ties.

How To Wear It: We're just a little in love with this pretty dress and can't help but think of fairy tales and ballet. Pair this dress with Mary-Jane ballet flats and keep everything else simple, the dress is quite a subtle statement in and of itself. A pair of sunglasses and soft rose red lips are all you'll need. In cooler months a pair of black opaque tights and multi strap buckle heels channels something Lolita-esque.

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.
