Vegan style: Vaute Couture & Vegan Shop Up Field Trip

I wore this to:
- eat brunch @ Champs
- visit the Vegan Shop Up
- go to my Vaute Couture appointment

I got this amazing '50s vintage dress (new with tags!) at Rosebud Vintage in Crown Heights.  When I sacrilegously had the tailors hem it for me (sorry, collectors) they marveled at all the 60 year old tags in perfect condition still on the dress.  It's not something you see every day. 

The pattern is traffic signs and sayings ("Stop Look and Listen") and is a generally informative dress if you need to learn how to cross the street and I can only imagine what youngster would have wanted such an informative dress back in the day.  (A nerdling?)  I am only too happy to have it now.
