Least Favorite Things

1960s shift dress via Va-Voom Vintage

Over the weekend we had some errands to run. It was such a hot day so I threw myself together in a few minutes with minimal hair and makeup. I'm trying to wear some of the things in my closet that get neglected. Things that I love to wear around the house but not so much when I go out. These are a few of my least favorite things paired with a favorite brooch from Broesj.

Pj likes to give my dresses silly names. There's The Cauliflower Dress, The Good n' Plenty Dress (not yet worn on the blog) and this one is "The Floral Holodeck", for you Star Trek fans.

The strange print and 1960s sack-like nature makes it one of my least favorites but its a comfy, easy dress to wear for a run to the store or a day of chores so I hang on to it.

I also wore it with one of the first hats that I thrifted when I first began blogging. This is an 80s felt hat that would be fabulous with a new adorable hat band but I haven't gotten around to a makeover yet.

  2. What a great name for the dress! Can't go wrong with a Trek reference in my book, and I can see exactly where PJ is coming from as well.

  3. Very cute dress (and great name--I too name some of my clothing!). I'm curious why you don't like it? It has a nice shape, esp. with the belt.

    1. Also: I have a brooch from that etsy seller too, and she is great to work with! I sent one to my sister as a gift and she loved it too.

    2. I love her!! I jave a couple from her and they're all some of my faves. I think it was mostly the bizarre print that I wasn't crazy about but the fabric feels so nice and its a giid shape too. I think that I'll wear it more often now that its "The Floral Holodeck" lol!

  4. Ha, I love the name of that dress! You can't beat a bit of nerdery. I've been trying to wear more neglected clothing too - it's great to get more wear out of things.

  5. This is so fun! I love the baby carriage pin too (closest I want to get to owning one). The name is perfect too. I love when SO's are on board and don't just whine about everything!
