Fruit Salad

Indulging my love for color and quirky prints I recently picked up this vintage dress at a lovely thrift boutique in Menlo Park, The Shop, which benefits the Junior League Of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula. A hidden gem, it is a great place to find some designer and one-of-a-kind clothes.

 I had a real challenge styling this piece at first. As much as I tried to play it down with neutral accessories, black seemed to harsh of a contrast to the bright hues and nude ended-up leaving me a bit washed-out. Instead this dress begged to burst with some summer flavor and throwing subtle out the window, I added a tangerine statement necklace, embracing the looks citrus hues. Fruity fun this dress was perfect for an SF fashion show cocktail party I stopped by.
