Hello! I just wanted to show you my favourite dress ever!
I bought it from ebay in February (well, technically my dad gave me the money for it as a birthday present!), and I've been waiting to post about it for a while because it felt almost too beautiful to wear. Like I should frame it and put it on the wall or something.
But, clothes are for wearing and that is what I shall do. (I think I may have unintentionally bastardised a Nancy Sinatra song there.)
Ahhh. I am just in love with this dress. Too lovely for words. The Marie Antoinette-esque toile de jouy print is so darling! I love the pastoral scenes and the architectural style details and the pretty pink exotic birds. I just love everything about the dress haha!
This dress just makes me want to float around a summer garden making daisy chains and twirling a paper parasol. The full skirted, 1950s shape makes it perfect for swishing about in a feminine manner.
dress - vintage via ebay, headscarf (I know, I know, I wear this too much!) - vintage, petticoat - charity shop, tights - dorothy perkins, necklace - car boot sale.
Back detail of the print.
Sorry for the lack of wordage in this post, but I'd rather let the dress speak for itself this time.
