Bluebird Bluebird....

A few months ago I fell in love with this incredible 1950’s wiggle dress, it would hang taunting me on the racks at Bluebird vintage and each time I would visit it would still be there begging me to take it home, I am pretty sure I tried it on each time too and begrudgingly put it back on the hanger thinking of ways I could muster the funds to bring it home before someone other lucky lady snapped it up.

One thing I can say about my love is that he is the most thoughtful man I have ever met, upon finding out about my dress crush he did what every woman dreams her man would do and surprised me one afternoon after swing dancing practice, I literally walked in the door like a sweaty mess and there it was hanging in the doorway…I am pretty sure I almost knocked him out with a flying hug and was on a natural high for the rest of the day! I truly am the luckiest lady.

So now I have all the plans and more for this little dress, it was already a favourite before it came to be mine but because my incredibly wonderful man gave it to me it will always hold a special place in my heart!

Your impeccable style and, even moreso, amazing hairstyling skills never cease to amaze. And such a sweet story behind a lovely dress!
