Blue Lagoon...

Photobucket

Photobucket

I had such a relaxing weekend filled with reading, hemming, eating vietnamese and writing letters. Z was working most of the weekend so i caught up on watching Downtown Abbey (because he cant stand watching it) and Becoming Jane which i surprisingly enjoyed! I also had the chance to wear my new vintage dress i op shopped during last week. The pattern instantly caught my eye it is so vibrant and happy (and i am all about that my friends) it fits perfectly is in great condition and only the hem needed lifting to make it a little cuter.

This year i have decided to focus more on the fabrics i buy, i admit i do have quite a few easy to wear polyester and rayon dresses and i do love my cotton dresses too but i gigured i would look at a few vintage dresses made in silk and softer fabrics which are a little more comfy and breezy to wear.

I have been working on a few cute pieces to put in the shop this week, including an amazing 1950's choker so hopefully one of you snaps it up! because i am already having pangs of regret for selling it! Its divine.

Hope you all are having a fab start to the week Xxx

That pattern is truly gorgeous, and such a lovely neckline. Despite not owning any, I do love enamel floral brooches and very much enjoy scrolling etsy for them. Your point about fabrics has had me thinking, I should probably get more nformed on different fabrics when it comes to buying vintage and all that. :D

Gorgeous dress! I love the colour and print. I need to focus more on the fabric I am buying too with vintage dresses. I have a few dresses in gorgeous summer prints but because of the fabric they are actually quite hot to wear in summer.
