Sweetheart and sweet square-ish necklines, delicate ruffles and embroidered details on curve-loving silhouettes over twirl-worthy frocks. Make your dressing game extra vintage, romantic and fun this peculiar year.

As part for my recent love for nostalgic feminine dresses, I’m about to share with you pretty lil’ midi dresses I just stumbled upon while on Etsy.

These dresses got my attention and it was their feminine tailoring that whispered to me as I immersed my eyes in their beauty.

Translation: I’m all about that square-ish angular necklines that these dresses are designed with as they open up and elongate your neck area. I’m also all about the strategic tailored and fitted bodice just before the waist flare. Retro details such as the embroidered floral stitching, vivid patterning, short puffy sleeves with a ruffle twist are all style features that make these modern midi dresses feel like a loving nod to a distant fashion era.

My rambling aside, please scroll to appreciate the midi beauties. Let’s go!
