I love vintage, romantic, indie styles. Op-shopping is where I find all the gems in my wardrobe.
Oh and I do not own any of the photos unless otherwise said, so well done to all you wonderful photographers out there!

Top 15 Dress Countdown for Audrey Hepburn by ihideinmymusic
#3. Off-Shoulder Ball Gown Worn in Roman Holiday, 1953 Designer: Edith Head This gown is simply breathtaking with its divinely regal shape. It has an off-shoulder overlaid neckline with a knot at the middle for a more enhanced bust, a fitted waist with an angled seam, and a voluminous pleated skirt with a lace petticoat underneath for additional fullness. It is made with gold silk brocade (although Edith Head said it was silver in a video, it is clearly gold) with exquisite shimmery raised embellishment. In the film Audrey plays a princess and so she dons royal accoutrements, as shown in several photographs, which pair nicely with the dress; I love the sash and the ribbons. The opera gloves she wears blend in with the dress to create a lovely faux long-sleeve look. I’ve always thought this was a lovely dress, but after seeing color photographs of it—as well as photographs sans the accessories—I realized just how gorgeous it is. I admire the dress’ structure, similarly as I did with another dress on the countdown, because you can tell that it’s high-quality with its heavy skirt and durable fabric. With or without accessories, this is a showstopper.
