Roman Holiday

This dress falls right into my sweet spot: a 1950s shirtwaist with a flared skirt.  The flared skirt allows a ladylike pose on scooter handle bars, my preferred mode of transportation, especially when the scooter is manned by a young Gregory Peck.  It has nice details, too, like an on-seam pocket in the skirt and a nubby texture to the navy blue fabric.  The necklace is pretty spectacular in its own right.  I am wearing it in honor of my friend H, who I know exerted great self-restraint in not keeping it for herself.  The whole ensemble is from Lula Vintage Wear, save the belt from Nordstrom.
