This amazing dress is what i wore to the Masterclass last weekend at the Voices of 2013. Since i decided to be savvy and only take carry on luggage (this was to prevent me buying up every vintage store in Sydney) i really had to plan my outfits and take exactly what i needed and nothing else. It did however make me sweat a little thinking i was over the weight limit and i had already started mentally deciding if need be what items would have to jump ship and be left behind to lighten the load!

I found this 1950's original at Bluebird Vintage on Cambridge street they only have a small selection of dresses but "oh my" they are carefully selected, in perfect condition and sold with love! The watercolour print and perfect fit sold me and even though it was a little out of my budget i couldnt walk away without it. (sometimes clothes just sing to me)

Another bonus is that it's also extremely comfortable which is great because since we were seated at the masterclass for a few hours it was lovely to relax and really take in the day instead of wondering if your seams are about to rupture in a room full of people (its happened before) sometimes vintage dresses give up on life at the worst times!

I will be uploading my next outfit on Friday (A pretty incredible dress) so keep an eye out!

(Wearing: 1950's dress, Vintage belt, Lola heels)
