{Review} Pretty Dress Company Hepburn Dress - The Dressed Aesthetic

I always get a frisson of excitement when I feel the first few whisps of autumn. Don’t get me wrong – I can (and do!) wax poetic about my sundresses. But, there’s just something about autumnal layers that gets me excited about the fashion possibilities. Textures and plaids and some of my most favorite tights can come out to play. So, I was super excited to see some of the fall offerings at Unique Vintage these past few weeks and I was especially thrilled for the opportunity to take this perfect plaid Hepburn dress by The Pretty Dress Company out…

{Review} Budding Beauties Alice Dress - The Dressed Aesthetic

I don’t know if it’s just me, but as soon as the collaboration between Micheline Pitt and Unique Vintage hit cyberspace, I was pretty much drooling over every single piece. The prints, the full skirts, just take my money now and save us a whole lot of trouble. And when this Budding Beauties Alice Dress flew straight from Unique Vintage and into my arms, she did not disappoint.

Sister, Sister - The DressedAesthetic

I’ve always been a fan of color. Not one to hide in the shadows, I eagerly reach for vibrant reds and electric blues – any way to bring a bit of brightness into my day. So, the neutral ends of my wardrobe can be a bit sparse. It’s not that I don’t enjoy black and white and browns and beige, but they just aren’t always on my radar (particularly when under-caffienated).

Hamilton - The Dressed Aesthetic

Ever since I was young, I’ve been obsessed with Broadway musicals. While my sister was rocking out to the latest boy band, I was belting out showtunes in my bedroom. And I knew them all: I languished over Les Miserables, playing Eponine and her unrequited love. I was Christine, both fearful of the Phantom and hypnotized by his music. I hopped and skipped around the furniture to Cats, rode the horses in Carousel, and allowed myself to be eaten by the greed of Audrey 2 in Little Shop of Horrors. It’s safe to say I was a dramatic teenager.

Your Own Brand of Fabulous: Reviewing Unique Vintage - The Dressed Aesthetic

When readers email me and ask for advice, I’m more than happy to give my opinion. More often than not, it’ll turn into a post of some sort: my favorite crinolines or my makeup must-haves. Well, lately the running theme seems to be: where can I get the vintage look in modern sizes? And whether you love vintage but want a few vintage-inspired pieces to mix in to your wardrobe, or you love the look but don’t have the time to put into the care true vintage requires, or you’ve become a bit frustrated with your favorite vintage-inspired retailers: this is the…

A Princess State of Mind - The Dressed Aesthetic (Priscilla Candy Stripe Midi Dress)

Let’s face it, every now and then a gal gets in a Princess State of Mind. Don’t get me wrong – this is not a mood that solely inspires lounging on a throne while being fed grapes (though that sounds nice too). No, in my world, Princesses get things done. But, some days I wake up from a long, deep sleep and the birds are singing (alas, they don’t help me get dressed) and the day feels imbued with a hint of magic. It’s the kind of mood where I feel inspired to wear a tiara and bejeweled slippers (and no one bats an eyelash). And it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the perfect…
