Mary Van DAAAMN!

red dress in the elevator

Dress: Vintage Dorothy O’Hara from Red Light Vintage in Portland, OR (scored it for a mere $7)
Gloves: surprisingly not vintage, and didn’t come with the dress. Found these in a store near Red Light and was amazed that the color matched perfect.
Shoes: Bunny’s Shoes, Santa Cruz
Stockings: new old-stock, ebay
Purse: my mom found it at an estate sale, or something like that.

    Thanks Twila! Redlight is always, always on my list of stops when I go to Hawthorne. I’ve found some of my favorite dresses there and for so cheap!!! I actually live in San Francisco. I get a lot of my vintage (almost all of it!) from Portland when I visit once or twice a year (my sister lives in Beaverton). The no sales tax thing is also a huge bonus : )
