Retro sunnies

This weekend I noticed that a shop in my town, Coco's was having another $10 tent sale. Last fall when I went, I made out so well and once again I was excited to see a bunch of things I had to have.
Retro Sunnies
I'm not entirely sure if these sunnies are a bit too over the top, or just the perfect amount - but the brand is Emmanuelle Khanh Paris, and they were handmade in France. Which is enough of a reason to buy them. Plus, they were only $10.
Retro Sunnies
This gingham top from J.Crew is another of my $10 Coco's finds -- it was a touch too big, but with the sleeves cuffed and tied over a dress, it is summer perfection. The condition is near new, and I might have to tie it like this over every dress I own before the summers end.

I also got an enameled bracelet for $1.60 and a really unique belt for $14 - I forgot to take photos, but I'll post them soon.

What is this Coco's you speak of and where can I find one?

Also, I absolutely love the dress.

Shey said...

This is such a nice summery look, those glasses where a great purchase and that last picture is gorgeous, are those flowers real? Great picture Lyddie!

Wow, love the gingham and floral together! Great outfit, the sunglasses look fab.

Theresa said...

I love love love your dress! It's so bright and lovely. Red is truly a great color on you and I love the glasses as well! ♥

I'm loving the print on your dress, so spring! I can't believe you scored those sunnies for only $10, what a find. I am actually loving oversized button ups right now. I love how they look tied over dressed like you have here or open over bathing suits as a cover up. They really are so versatile, hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Love the sunnies! And YAY for the Kohl's dress! I can't wait to start wearing mine again, haha :D

Wow, what great finds for $10! You look like you're all ready for summer :)

Yeri said...

The sunglasses aren't too much, they're just right!

Good score on the JCrew shirt too!

Jess said...

I love the large floral print on your dress. And your shoes are fab. I am so envious of your shoe collection.

kris said...

Love this outfit!!! Totally over the top but in a reasonable way. You've inspired me (as always) to rethink my remixing options for my gingham top.

hurricanekerrie said...

Those sunnies are awesome! Not over the top at all! I love the way you dressed up your summer dress. Red blue so totally go together. ;)

Frannie Pantz said...

I have a pair of white sunnies that I wonder about as well. But I think these are perfect. I love the gingham/floral combo. (Though I am partial to gingham anyhow.) And the location is beautiful.

Kavery said...

The sunnies and the mixed prints all mix well to make this a complete look. And your dog is so white and fluffy!

The Fancy Teacup said...

Those sunglasses are a terrific find, I love Vanessa Bruno clothes, and she is the daughter of the founder of Emmanuelle Khanh. And I love the siren red on you!

What is Coco and can I find one near me? (PA) Cute outfit I like the mix of patterns. Can't wait to see how the gingham looks with other pieces. The sunglasses are "KEEPERS"!

eek said...

Those shades are perfection! Looks like you got some pretty cool deals. I love the gingham-floral combination!

I like the retro look! PLUS, you mixed patterns! Hoorah!

DaniellaBella said...

I love that amazing dress! So perfectly summer. I never would have thought to tie a top over like that but you are right: Summer perfection!!

I love the gingham with the floral- retro vibe but still totally fresh and modern.

FutureLint said...

Awesome! I love the shirt knotted that way and the bold pattern mixing! Cute!

Lea said...

Just found you through EBEW, so hii.

AH. The sunshine in these photos is so pretty. And I love the idea of tying a collared shirt over a dress. I've obviously seen it done before, but have definitely never felt motivated to try it. I love the gingham with the florals. So springy and pretty. The contrast between the two is really awesome :D

The sunglasses are so pretty. I can't believe you found them for so cheap.

Bre said...

I need to make it to Coco's stat! Great stuff and lovely outfit. I really like you paired your florals with gingham.
Cheers,
Bre

Amber Blue Bird said...

those shades are rockin, cant believe you scored them for just 10 bucks. You have all the luck :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Shut up, I love this outfit (I know you didn't say anything but I've been quoting Mean Girls all day today). Those sunglasses are great, love white sunglasses and yes they are always a little dramatic. I freaking love that blouse too and everything about this look says ready for summer!

Style Eyes said...

I love this pattern combination! I works so well together

Shea said...

I don't think the sunnies are too over-the-top; I think they're awesome! And I LOVE the print of this dress paired with the gingham top.

Frances Joy said...

Love, love, love! This look is so spot on perfect! You totally scored on those sunnies, since they are just the right amount of over the top. Obviously.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

You got some amazing things Lyddie! Those glasses are beyond chic...xo

BiblioMOMia said...

Gingham and poppies are GORGEOUS! I have a pair of white sunnies, and I've been wearing them almost every day. Glad I found you through EBEW!
