Pleats & Teal...

Last week while rummaging around my local op shop i found this gorgeous raw silk teal dress lurking amongst the clothes in the dress up rack, although it needs a little work with possibly some darts, and the sleeves are a little worse for wear, it still has retained its charm and those pleats just kill me....too much to handle!

I wore it out over the weekend to a Nanna and Grandpa themed 30th (hence the glasses and french roll) and since it survived a few rounds on the dancefloor i think its a keeper!I do get dissapointed sometimes when i find the vintage dresses from op shops are beyond repair or are just not practical to either sit down in or do rapid movements in (just in case you split your seams) But Huzzah! not this time.

I also spent the rest of my weekend eating a copious amount of pastries and catching up on a little bit of writing! Have a fab week!
