Purple and Pink

Pink and purple vintage dress made in Argentina, similar sans print, orange and fuchsia look alike 
 Nude heels Flexi, almost identical - Brown tote bag Coach 
This dress was last worn in 2011 and it use to be big on me. I purchased this vintage, Argentine made dress of thick polyester probably sometime around 2010 during a trip to Buenos Aires. Spotted it at a sidewalk stand at the San Telmo Sunday market, where you can usually find a lot of vintage and antiques. I recall the lady whom I bought it from. She was speaking really fast and kept asking me questions, it was kind of annoying but I slowly and quietly searched the clothes racks she had. She mostly carried vintage women's wear and it looked like she had emptied an entire closet from the 60's era on the sidewalk. It was quite a treat to search through.  Finally, I walked away with this dress and another light brown one. 
One of the things she asked when I was reaching for my wallet to pay her, was if I was looking for clothes for a 1960s movie production and when I replied "no, they are for me..." she gave me the oddest look ever.

Oh, you know I love this one! Vintage, floral and a faux wrap, three of my favorite things. It looks great on you. Sorry to hear about you scrapes and scratches-hope they heel quickly!

That would have been such a fun collection to go through - and this is certainly a great classic wrap dress!

That is a beautiful dress! I love wrap dresses, and pink and purple always look good together.

I think some people have a hard time comprehending that vintage things can still look modern and stylish even years after they were made and worn, sounds like that seller thought so anyway!

¡Hola, Lorena! Con solo una mirada ya me figuraba yo que era un vestido vintage... Me alegra que lo hayas rescatado, porque te sienta de maravilla (aunque no sea para una película de cine jajaja).

Un beso y feliz semana,

I don't think I would have guessed that dress was from the 60's - I do love the large floral print and the wrap style. Pretty funny that she didn't even think anyone would want to wear her clothes as something other than a costume!
