It's all in the details

Having a great dress is nice, but to really get that great look, you need to have all the details!

I love, love, love this BBQ dress!

But since I was wearing it to church and not a BBQ, I needed to glam it up. 

First up, a great vintage hat! This light weight black sun hat is great! The velvet ribbon is an added bonus.

Jewelry is also a great way to add glam to an outfit. I choose my vintage crystal necklace and my newly converted to post back confetti earrings!

This black velvet belt is probably my most used vintage accessory but oh so important to this look!

Lastly, I added a new to me pair of vintage black gloves! It's amazing what a pair of gloves can add to an outfit.

What's your favorite vintage detail in an outfit?


  1. Wow love the cute BBQ print!

    For me, a hat is always great to complete a vintage look. I find buying hats quite difficult and also difficult to wear sometimes (depending on where I'm going) but its one those things that I'm always looking for.

  2. LOVE the hat! and the dress is adorable :)

  3. I've been contemplating buying this dress myself!

    Gloves are a favorite of mine too! But I do a door a good brooch!


  4. That hat is really elegant and so classically pretty, it was an ideal choice for the feminine cut of this super cool dress.

    *PS* I'd say that my favourite accessory varies with the outfit, but generally speaking, top billing goes to either my gloves, hats, or a brooch.

  5. I saw a hat sooo similar to that at my local antique shop. I debated on getting it. If it's there next time I'm snagging it up. It's such a great staple.

  6. Oh so pretty! What a clever outfit! Love it! xox

  7. Hands down, one of the cutest dresses I have seen in a long while. I LOVE it

  8. I saw the hat on Fancy Hat Sunday love the dress its adorable.

  9. You are so right, your look is amazing with all the little details! I'm loving that black hat. Usually black hats can be a bit common and blah, but yours has the lovely ribbon and gorgeous shape that makes it so special! You look great!

  10. I have that exact necklace! My gran gave it to me 15 years ago :P

    1. How sweet! Mine was a gift from my husbands grandmother. :)
