Morning Guys & Dolls!
Day off today which means blog catch up day!
I had plans to go vintage shopping today, but so far my day has consited of playing dress up and listening to this wonderful CD my beau bought for me.
Whilst I decide weither or not to venture out I thought It about time I debuted this little gem I picked up at a miliatia fair two weeks ago,beautiful crepe dress and what's more..
Its a TWO PIECE! be still my beating heart!
when I reluctantly accompanied my Soldier to yet another military event I never imagined I'd be the one
bringing home a bargin prize!
The stall I found her on was run by a sweet old man who was clearly far more at home pricing bomb shells and uniform patches as I got my beautiful suit for a tiny £20!
Now onto the details, both dress and jacket are made of beautiful dove grey crepe,
with black beading.
I love the high neck and elbow length sleeves!
There is a little discolouration on the jacket, but that doesn't really bother me,
I like a little character in my clothes, it shows they have a history.
In these pictures I have also been showing off my beautiful new shoes!
I purchesed these to wear on my birthday, I'm not so sure they will go with my dress but
heck who cares! They could have been taken directly from a 1950s vixen's wardrobe!
I feel very bettie-page-at-a-car-show in them and who wouldn't want to feel like that?
They are the Bordello genie ankle strap and I ordered them from american amazon!
thats all for now, I guess I better put some warm clothes on and venture out!
has anyone else had any vintage luck recently?
Love Hollie xx
