It’s no secret. I love vintage clothes. If I could afford to buy true vintage constantly, I would. But unfortunately, vintage clothes are getting more and more expensive.
Today I wore my favourite 1940s dress. It is true vintage. It is handmade and it is the most beautiful dress I have ever had in my wardrobe. It is one of those dresses that I get so concerned about. I don’t want to stain it or get it dirty because it is that special.
I bought it off ebay about a year ago. I never really wore it that much because I didn’t want to ruin it. Now? I want to wear it and take care of it. I don’t want it to become one of those dresses that just sits in my wardrobe only to be looked at and not worn!
I put on my new belt from Smoove (that I bought yesterday especially for this dress) and also my pair of 1930s/40s deadstock shoes. They are still tight, but I’m trying to stretch them out more by wearing them every so often. I did get them professionally stretched (by the local shoe fixer person) but they are still tight.
I had no one to take my photo, so I had to improvise by balancing my phone on my laptop to take a photo using the timer. I would have used my laptop but I wanted to put the outfit on instagram!
Straight after my mum’s birthday party, we had to go out. So I changed outfits:
Vintage Wrangler shorts from the 1950s (deadstock – so never worn..another ebay find!).
A bag from the Ladies Market in Hong Long.
A striped Bardot t-shirt from Dotti.
Retro style (1950s) wedges from Number One Shoes.
The Necklace is from Burma.
My view of the city when driving over the Harbour Bridge:
I went back to Smoove while my parents were at the dance workshop (I was going to go but I didn’t get my name down in time).
So, all in all I had a busy, tiring day.
I’m signing out now..zzzzzzzz
