Two years ago, Anthropologie came out with a dress made from vintage Kantha fabric.
At the time I had just lost sixty pounds (I would go on to lose more) and I had very little clothing that fit me. It felt like a miracle to find this dress that seemed like it came from my dreams.
The dresses were by my favorite designer, Vineet Bahl.
Each one was different and unique as they were made from vintage fabric.
I paired the Vintage Kantha Dress with these kantha clips I purchased this year from Free People. I love that they match the dress perfectly.
I own four of these dresses.
Yes. Four! Each one is more amazing than the next. The inside of each dress is done in a different vintage Kantha fabric. This one has a purple Kantha inside. I have been trying to figure out how to wear them inside out, too.
These dresses are my favorite pieces of clothing in my closet. If I had to choose one item to personify me, this would be it.
The coin necklace seemed like a good fit on this day (similar here).
Look at that detail on the dress.
I just love it so much.
I cannot wait to share the rest of my Kantha dresses. They are so special to me. I own them in orange (shown here), pink, maroon, and green. I would buy more if they were available.
I bought mine on a discount. The maroon one was a steal. But, regardless of price, they are the pieces of clothing in my closet I would save in the event of a fire (after family, pets, documents and art, of course).
What one item in your closet personifies you? How long have you had it? Do you own more than one?
