Coral and Clogs..

There is something to be said about taking a dress home without trying it on and it fits like a glove! especially when its vintage and the cuts are a little more specific, i guess im lucky most of the vintage dresses i find i can fit into (even if i have to squeeze myself in...without breathing) or use a belt to make it a little smaller..but i love not having to try and make it fit to me..when you can find a dress that makes you feel like it was made for u!





Im in love with the triangle cut out back and that large button makes me swoon! (its all about the small details) and i think this flower print is the prettiest i have seen in a long time.

Im off to get my hair fixed tomorrow (lets see if i have the gumption to cut it) my colour is all over the place and im a little sad about it..but hopefully tomorrow it will be right as rain!

I had the most exhausting (but lovely) weekend, after a sweet lady came and chose some pieces from my shop i hemmed for a few hours and then had a few glasses of wine while the sun was out! Then me and mah man took my niece to The Royal Show.. after hours of crowds and listening to kids yelling "Can i have this" a few failed attempts at winning any prizes (i suck at games) and scaring the life out of my niece by taking her on the ghost train (ok...in my defence i didn't know she was too young for that! scarred her for life i think) we watched the fireworks and walked half a day back to the car! its so nice to go and see the rides, stuff yourself full of fairy floss and wear a blue wig for the day though..So fun!

I realised i accidentally matched my nails to my dress (i tend to do that all the time) a gorgeous coral colour i pinched from my friend! i cant remember the name of it, but i think next i will do a soft lavender..just before the weekend!

Im also frantically choosing pieces to put in The Vintage Valley Shop this Thursday..some more cute dresses and blouses..Well im off to make another coffee...i need it this morning!

(Wearing: Vintage floral dress, Sachi clogs, Vintage purse, Sportsgirl sunglasses, Vintage brown belt, Collette heart earrings)

Women were so lucky in the past, all their clothes were made specifically for them or tailored versus today where we have to squeeze into predetermined sizes. The dress is perfect on you, I like the back cutout as well and the print is wonderful for summer.

I love the beautiful print on this dress, and I find the little sleeves very sweet - also, what a great purse! Hard to find vintage purses in white that are still in good nick. They look so fresh and summery!
