Outfit 30.7.10: fifties dress

After all that talking about the ethics of wearing fifties clothes here is my favourite vintage dress! From the 1950s. It’s a day dress and I still can’t quite believe that people used to wear this kind of thing to do the hoovering! I wouldn’t even wear this to work, it’s too dressy. This time I wore it for drinks and dancing, for which it is just right!

dress – vintage shop
shoes – clarks

    Wow, what an incredible dress! I was watching Mad Men this weekend and had the same thoughts about some of the "day dresses" they wear. They'd be far too fancy for most of my activities!

    That dress is so beautiful. I love getting dressed up. If I waited for a special occasion to wear my dresses, I would never wear them.

    Love that dress, the color combo is so pretty!
    And every time I wear my nice clothes to do housework, I completely regret it.
