This is from a couple of weekends ago, worn to go for a lovely girly afternoon tea birthday. The vintage dress is new from the ever trusty Sally Army at the bottom of Leith Walk. I will not be going back for a while because I am seriously running out of space in my wardrobe for dresses.
I was adventurous and paired it with a vintage jacket which I scored for something like £6 years ago, but haven’t worn much, oddly. I love the retro pattern and its reversible! Though the inside is a very unevenly faded brown, so not sure I’ll ever wear it the other way round. It’s my main jacket at the moment, so its time has finally come.
While taking these pictures, I realised how hard it is to take pictures in really bright sunshine! That’s me squinting away in pictures 2 and 4! It’s so much easier to get the lighting right when its overcast, as it usually is round these parts of the world at this time of year. Not that I am complaining about the sunshine!
The brooch by the way was only worn once and has now made its merry way to Australia and Sarah at Misfits Vintage!
