Zipp a de doo da





So after much sifting yesterday i came across a rack of 1950's dresses which after controlling my excitement and trying not to yelp in joy because there were a few girls lurking around the rack threatening to pounce on me... i grabbed about 6 of them and ran for the changerooms, i came out with two of the cutest dresses and the lady in the vintage shop was nice enough to tell me that they were all handmade with of course original 50's fabric.... so i skipped home and couldnt wait to give them a good wash and wear them...

Well i put on the other dress its so beautiful red with large flowers all over it, and ping the zipper broke it was very worn out and i guess you take your chances with vintage clothes.. i guess i should have looked a little closer instead of bouncing around in excitement...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i almost cried :( so now i have to get it re-zipped.....super dissapointed, but anyway in the meantime here is the green one... im in love i swear!!!

I think next time ill wear it with a brown belt instead of its original belt so it ads a bit more to it!!! perfect for summer and Autumn :)

I have started a little project i hope you will all love ill keep you posted...i love projects :)

Great find! Also, way to handle the lurking girls. Vintage shopping is a sport. Never be afraid to grab the ball and run, or throw a few elbows.

Your style is just perfect. Definitely one of my favorite bloggers. I love your idea about being pen-pals! We should totally do that.. even trade a few clothes here and there?!

hello there. I just started following your blog & just love your style! It's innovative, yet girly & classic. I'm a little jealous of your vintage pieces, they just look so darn cute on you. I might have to visit my local goodwill now to find some lovelies of my own.
