Over the holidays I picked up the cutest vintage style mini dress from Christy Dawn! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect fall/winter mini dress for awhile and the Mischa Dress checks all the boxes.
The Perfect Vintage Style Mini Dress
Christy Dawn Mischa Dress Review
I picked up the Mischa Dress in Noir Dancing Chamomile right before the holidays. And even though it was technically a part of their Holiday Collection, I think the print is versatile enough to be worn year round.
Fabric + Fit
Like a lot of Christy Dawn’s dresses, the Mischa dress is made from 100% Regeneratively Grown Cotton. The bodice of the dress is unlined making the top semi-opaque. The skirt is lined however so you don’t have to worry about wearing a slip. The material is soft and lightweight so if you are wearing it in cold weather it’s important to layer up!
I’m wearing the size small, which is my usual size, and it fits true to size. The dress has a loose empire style waist which can be tightened using the attached ties. What I was excited about was the length. Usually I skip the mini dresses because they look too short. But the size small Mischa dress is 34.5″ long and I feel it provides enough coverage for a mini dress.
Vintage Style Dress Details
It’s the details that really make this vintage style mini dress special. There is a button closure up the front of the bodice that leads to a bib with a floral eyelet design and scalloped edges. The balloon sleeves hit at the elbow with a cuff and little ruffle. And the empire waist seam has pleats that turn into a full skirt. Not to mention the beautiful chamomile print against the black background.
Overall, this has turned out to be one of my favorite Christy Dawn dress styles! It’s very easy to wear and the dress style is very comfortable. I also love the versatility. I think it looks really cute styled for winter with tights, cardigans, and boots. But I’m also really excited to wear this dress sans tights with a pair of sandals and a cute straw bag for summer!
