Pastel Dream...

One drab wednesday night i was flicking through Etsy on my phone while warming my tootsies by the heater...when i found this incredible tulle pastel dream of a dress in near perfect condition, normally i have found these dresses with fabric pulls all over...so lucky...plus it was a complete steal at $40 and i mean lavender and blue come on!!! I naturally bought it straight away and then spent a few agonising weeks waiting for the postman to deliver it!

I am a firm believer that every woman should have a ready-to-go ball gown (just in case) in her closet and i sure am glad to add this adorable number to my wardrobe even if it is to twirl around my apartment in!

I have cute visions of it being worn to a school dance in the 50's paired with some cream gloves and a flower corsage (cute overload) i guess thats half the excitement about vintage dresses you know they have seen so many things in their time but we just have to use our imaginations as to what those things may be!!!

Oh that is just divine! I totally agree with you that every woman should have a beautiful dress for SUPER special occasions. I really want to get myself a beautiful formal dress like this one, though I am likely to just walk around the house in it eating tim tams.

$40?!?!?!?! for tulle! what an absolute bargain you did so well! this is totally beautiful and completely up my street! but dresses of this calibre on etsy are always a little bit pricier! I cannot wait to see you in it! and that back detail with the flowing scarf is going to be so darling! xxxxx Rebecca

Holy moly how I envy you now! This is a pure dream-come-true fairy dreamy dress! I also thought instantly of prom and cute little creamy gloves .. how beautiful would that be with beautiful blonde curls and red lipstick. Pure heaven, you are so lucky to get this beautiful piece!

Much love from Epp,

My jaw literally dropped. I am on a lose baby weight mission and when I reach my goal I have convinced my husband to let me buy an extra special dress... Lavender and Blue may be just what I need!

Love love love!

Such a beautiful dress. I think I'm going to have to take up your advice on having a just in case ball gown!
