Outfit 30 May 2009

30 May 2009

The computer is partially reinstalled, I managed to get to this photo onto my external hard drive just before the laptop gave up completely, phew! Anyway, this photo is from the first part of my birthday celebrations – because I was away for my actual birthday on the 7th of June I had a night out the weekend before, and a meal the weekend after.

This dress is the most I have ever spent on vintage (£50!), but is so beautiful, it was totally worth it. The label said 1950s day dress, I guess because it is made from cotton, but its so dressy, I can’t imagine everyone walking around wearing this sort of thing every day! It has little bows at the waist too, although you can’t see them very well, because they’re made from the same fabric.

    hm. I keep failing at comment leaving here, let's try it again…

    I love that dress. I love it, I love it, I love it. You're lucky I am far, far away, Otherwise I would probably knock you down, strip you, and run off with it 🙂
