2 for 1: Vintage Dress Remix from Annika of Pineneedle Collective!

Welcome to Annika from Pineneedle Collective! I've been eyeing her style for quite some time and we've become friends in the process of my creeping on her. She willingly agreed to participate in a wardrobe remix with me! Enjoy! :)
Look one: She took a beautiful vintage dress and made it the main garment to work from. This is the dress itself paired with knee high socks (she put the heart patches on herself!), a brown leatherbag and red accessories.
Look two: Annika calls this the "sneaky stolen collar look" because she is wearing the vintage dress under another dress. Genius! She says, "It gives the blue dress the appearance of having a collar. If you have a nice collar on a dress or shirt, then layering it under other items works well because you are basically creating a new dress! I've also used the belt belonging to the purple vintage dress on top!"
Look Three: "The vintage dress is now worn as a blouse. It's super easy to turn a dress into a blouse with a high waisted skirt or pinafore! I ended up feeling like a bit like a maid in this outfit..."
Look four: "The vintage dress worn under a cropped sweater Layering a collared dress underneath a sweater can give the dress a new look and also make the sweater look super cute!"
Look one: I also chose a vintage dress for my remix (haha... of course). I paired it with my mom's vintage hunter green knee socks and chevron wedges and a red hat. A bow tie to top it off.
 Second look: I paired the vintage dress with oxfords found at Goodwill, my Great Grandmother's fur collar with a vintage pin on it from my mother, and orange gloves from Dandelion Vintage.
Look three: I paired the vintage dress with taupe and white flats found at Salvation Army, a lace crop top from forever 21, a green thrifted belt, and an antique sleeping cap from 1905.
Look four: I wanted a bolder pop of color for this look so I added vintage blue bow heels from Salvation Army and a electric blue blazer. Green vintage pearls from my mother and my Great Grandmother's white mesh metal purse from the 1950's/1960's.
We hope you enjoyed our remixes and learned a trick or two in the process! XOX
love, Polly and Annika!

The lace crop top over the yellow chiffon number is my favorite combination... layering this way (like the collar under the blue dress) can really change the whole look of the outfit! Super cute, guys!
