If you are a longtime follower of Sea of Shoes, you may know that I have a lifelong affinity for all things Ralph Lauren. I always feel completely at home wearing anything Ralph, it’s a very natural extension of my personal style. I’ve been a long time collector of his old label Rugby Ralph Lauren. It was like a younger, preppier, more playful version of classic Ralph Lauren. We used to have a Rugby Ralph Lauren store here in Dallas and it was heaven on earth to me. My closet overflows with it because I can’t bear to get rid of any of my Rugby. When the stores and label shuttered I was pretty heartbroken. I was very happy when Ralph Lauren launched the new Polo Ralph Lauren, which is a lot like Rugby used to be.
This dress is Polo Ralph Lauren, and I actually found it on Instagram when Prototype Vintage in Austin posted it. I called the store right away and got my hands on it. I’m wearing it here with some very old Giuseppe Zanotti lucite wedge boots, a vintage belt, and a vintage squash blossom necklace.

Bravo! My daughter and I miss that store too. Hanging on to all of our R brand items as they were well-made and timeless. You perfectly accessorize. Makes the look!
So stunning – but I suppose Ralph Lauren deserves only the best
Such a beautiful dress, lucky find! Your squash blossom necklace looks great paired with it!
Gorgeous dress! I love how the fabric moves in the photos.
So nice cut!! This dress is just amazing. I like the boots so much. And the belt gives so much value to this outfit. You look great!
I love that squash blossom necklace! My mom has one that used to be her grandmothers. I hope to inherit it one day!
