On Sunday i re-visited an old friend Lindy Hop! over a year ago i took a beginners workshop and took a few classes but was unable to afford my addiction at the time so sadly i had to let it go for awhile!

I am so so excited i decided to go back because now the jitterbug (bug) has bitten me again except a little harder now! i want to spend all my time practising and am constantly going through the moves in my head! (its any wonder how i am getting anything else done)

I also went to the Beaufort Street Festival on Saturday where i munched on sugared doughnuts and squeezed my way up the street in the crowd it was such a blast! i also picked up this little number from a vintage stall it was perfect for my Lindy Hopping the next day...easy to move in, dosent show i am sweaty (too much info right?) and cute to pair with my blinding white target cheapy sneakers!

That dress is amazing. I absolutely love it. I actually had a couple of friends who learned the Lindy Hop. They tried to teach it to us but as I have discovered. My dancing skills are non-existent.

Such a pretty dress! And I'm a little jealous you're learning lindy-hop - any time I've seen lindy-hoppers in action it looks like they are having the best time!

Love the dress! I have to admit I am a tad jealous. I have been wanting to learn swing dancing and keep meaning to, but can never find the time or money. I think I will have to try a little bit harder next year as it looks like so much fun.

i miss dancing so much. ... the bf and i want to attend swing class when my foot is totally recovered (hopefully it will someday). dancing makes me feel happier than shopping awesoem vintage dresses - and this means a lot.
have fun dancing - and you look so gorgeous in this cute dress!
