Its almost officially Summer and i am itching to break out all my cute dresses its also a good time to hit the thrift shops because all their summer stock is in yay!!!

Its almost my birthday also :) the 16th to be exact i am having a few drinks with some close friends and that is about all im doing to celebrate.. but i was thinking this may be the dress ill wear..hmm its a casual Sunday drink so i dont need anything too over the top... but the decision is do it hem it or not....... i need help!!!! i sometimes have an issue with cropping certain dresses mainly because i like to keep the asthetic the same as it wasin the era they were made and the majority of the time after hemming them i dont like the result in the end and wish i never did it....

Although i am thinking mayb a little bit just over or on the knee and this dress would be the perfect length...what do you think???




I have been having a pretty fabulous week so far i have found a few cute dresses for the shop and im looking forward to the Beaufort Street Festival which is on saturday im going to stuff myself silly with pastries and spend way too much on handmade goodies.. i love a good street festival!!! A very big Happy Thanksgiving to all my American/Canadian readers and Happy Friday to the rest of us... even though im not American i think i can still say that im thankful for having such a wonderful supportive family..Love you guys XX

(Wearing: Vintage Triangle & Circle Dress, Patent Cream Pumps & Vintage Spotted Belt)

I think the dress is perfect the way it is! I'm in love with it.

I also think it's pretty funny that you're excited for summer and I'm preparing for winter!

This dress is GORGEOUS on you! I love the print and how you mixed it with the polka dot belt... so chic! I think the length it has right now is very pretty, but if you hemmed just a couple of inches so that it would be above your knee it would probably look very pretty too. Either way sounds good!

Love the dress and those shoes are A-MAZING (see, they are so amazing I had to take a deep breath and rest my typing fingers before finishing the word) ;)

A very sweet 16!
