SOFT PINK ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

Friday, June 22, 2012


OK we're not gonna lie. This dress is almost too pretty or too "precious" for its own good. I couldn't resist picking it up vintage because it was literally $4. But every time I wear it, it seems difficult in my mind since everything from the color to the cut screams 'sweetness'.  How do you harden something like this up? This has been the question I ask myself every time I wear it. Finally I gave up. I took the edgier necklaces off that I tried to use to make it less sweet, and just let it be. You might remember me talking about a Grace Kelly look that I had a while back? Well here it is. Take it or leave it, but as a little girl I would've loved it.  And I must admit in the few times I've worn it I had one women tell me it was the most beautiful dress she had ever seen and another who said it was "the perfect modest dress". Well, what do you guys think? Is it too tame? Or could it sort of fit in with some of the Valentino looks below (notably the simple white button-down dress)?


  1. This is so pretty! I LOVE what you paired it with it --it's perfect!

  2. If it's cotton you could always stick it in a vat of purple dye (or colour of your choice) to make it less "pretty in pink". I've done that successfully with a beige dress that I loved the style of, but the colour looked terrible with my skin.

  3. Such a cute dress! I'm so jealous! $4 is a steal! :P
    Pastels are definitely on your color chart!
