We've all gotten those invitations before: "vintage party, wear your Sunday best." My Sunday best? You can usually find me in some sort of mishmash of sweats that I call pyjamas, hair in a top knot and with the glow of my laptop on my face on Sundays. With this in mind, you can imagine my panic when receiving a invitation to Rethink At The Races, a vintage garden party hosted by Rethink Breast Cancer (with proceeds going to support and empower young women concerned about and affected by breast cancer.) With such a good cause, and fun event I knew that I had to find an alternative to sweats for the day.

The dress was the most obvious choice for me. I have been staring at the gorgeous white TeezeMe dress in my closet for weeks wondering when I would have the opportunity to wear it. I love the simplicity of the front and the elaborate back detail of this white dress; perfect for a dressy affair. If only I had found this dress for my bridal shower years ago, it would have been perfect!
My first thought was a fascinator. I wanted something hand-made and beautiful, with the hat being made in Canada is possible. Thankfully Maria Curcic Millinery totally came through with a hand-made fascinator that is totally me: white flowers, pale pink accents and lots of height for drama. Maris also does hat rentals, so I'm definitely going to be taking advantage for my next vintage affair. Check her out on Instagram!
What do you guys think? Do you like the white dress and fascinator combination? What would you wear to a vintage garden party? Let me know!
