Pink Lace...

As i am sure you already know, i have a little bit of love for an 80's does 50's dress (the ones with an elasticated waist probably not so much) sometimes i find a dress that has all the gentle sighs of the 50's era, beautiful cut, full skirt and on occasion still in perfect condition. 

So on Tuesday i wore this little lace number out to a themed work party! Nothing like a dress with a bit of versatility right? It's rather funny as i still feel like admitting your love for such a dress is still taboo, like you have been caught out squirting whipped cream into your mouth in front of the fridge...stammering out excuses when all you want to do is express your love for the whipped cream! So i say...embrace it..shout it to the rooftops if must be!! I am ( - insert name here - ) and i have a slight obsession with 80's does 50's dresses....there...now lets hug it out!

I have SO many plans this weekend, photographing an extra special series of posts for next week that i simply CANT WAIT to share (sorry for shouting caps..but they are absolutely necessary) many gins to be had to celebrate a special birthday and of course dancing! Xx

(Wearing: Op Shopped lace dress, vintage basket bag, Modcloth shoes)

I love 80s does 50s (though I agree that elastic is a deal breaker). I also love 70's does 40s/30s. AND 80s does 20s. It's all GREAT!

I have a really similar 80s does 50s dress and I love it! It has a satin bodice and lace skirt though. I find it too fancy for everyday wear but it's a good dress to attend weddings in! I love yours. It looks gorgeous on you!
