Vintage 1950s cotton day dress + Vintage skinny belt + Ash Italia sandals

I was really excited when I found this dress a couple of weeks back! It's easy and simple!  It came with it's original skinny belt but I decided to wear one of my favorite skinny belts instead for contrast and to tie in my sandals.  These days I've been focused on making on my vintage pieces look more modern instead of looking like I came right out of a particular era (although there is nothing wrong with that if that is your thing, I tried that for a period of time ;-)  This is what I wore on Sunday:

Vintage 1950s cotton day dress - Avalon Exchange Pgh
Vintage skinny belt - Thrifty score 
Vintage jewelry - Etsy, Ebay, Thrift & 2nd hand boutique
Ash Italia sandals -
