Is this Pucci-vibes goddess dress a total dream or what? Y’all know I love me a mumu. And to find one in this killer print? I mean, come onnnnn. The mandarin-esque collar and sexy side slits really push this piece over the edge of epic and straight into legendary. And. It. Has. Pockets.
I am always looking for expertly curated vintage shops on Instagram, and when I stumbled upon A Part of the Rest, I knew I had found a true gem. The owner, Kam, has an incredible eye for prints and patterns, which (and I know from experience) is no easy skill to master. You should probably buy this beauty before I do. Kam spent 10 years as a designer in NYC, and sells some of her own designs online as well. This jumpsuit of hers may make its way into my closet… Every piece in her shop looks super expensive, but her prices are totally affordable! I loathe when vintage shops jack their prices up too high—it makes their products totally inaccessible, which is what I hate about the fashion industry in the first place.
One of the main things I look for in a statement piece like this is versatility. Can I wear it to more than one type of occasion? Can I layer something under it to create a new look? Does it work with and without a belt? Can I wear heels and flats? And this piece checks all those boxes. I can imagine throwing this on over a bathing suit as a beach cover up, or pairing it with strappy sandals for a summer wedding. Imagine layering a white blouse with balloon sleeves under this baby. Talk about show stopping!
