The Outer Banks III: Lost Colony

This is going to be my last post about my trip to North Carolina and coincidentally I am wearing one of the first pieces of vintage I bought. I found this dress at Sid Vintage in downtown Northampton, MA a few years back and have been loving it ever since. I think it is the vibrant colors that do it for me.
I wore this dress to go see an outdoor play about The Lost Colony. Ever hear about this? Another colony who came over about the same time as the pilgrims and were never heard from again. Apparently the first U.S. baby was born here and named Virginia Dare. I'd tell you more about this creepy story, but we never actually got to see the play as it got rained out. After we drove an hour out to see it. We then proceeded to drive home in the scariest thunderstorm EVER. Thought we were going to die. Luckily that was not the case.

  12. what a bummer that you didn't get to see the play. it's sounds so interesting, and how cool that the first US born baby's last name was dare! Says a lot about America I guess. love your first vintage purchase too! looks smashing on you, my friend.

    And I saw your return email about NYFW. I'm crossing my fingers and toes in hopes that you'll be able to make the event!

  16. that dress is amazing, like 20s-via-60s cheongsams, demure and elegant but completely unique in colour and design. true vintage, i think.
    and that play sounds amazing, what a shame you didn't get to see it!
