Overture Part Two

Do you remember when I said I had found the perfect dress for my own graduation exhibition opening? Well, I got to wear it on Wednesday as the night in question finally arrived! And here is the dress in all of its glory -

Outfit details: poppies - for Remembrance Day; diamante necklace - Diva; 1950s cotton dress - Exclusive Vintage; diamante bracelet - Diva; silver shoes - Payless.
And here's a collage, because I couldn't resist using that little caption -
Anyway, the night was quite a success. I managed to sell one of my photos (it was 'S Wonderful, for those of you who are interested) practically immediately! I arrived just as the exhibition was officially meant to open and the first thing I saw was a little red dot next to my work. I'm not sure who bought it, yet, but it's encouraging to know someone else loved my work enough to actually want to own it. Here's hoping I sell the other two pieces.

After the show I headed down to the Casino, again, to see Lucky Seven with a friend from swing dancing but we only stayed long enough for one set, which was better than not seeing them at all. They're having a Tiki themed night in a couple of weeks which I'm rather excited about.

I am currently quite exhausted (I actually had to have a nap when I got home today) but this dress has inspired me to put together a little post about all of my favourite vintage things of the pink persuasion, so keep a look out for that!

Love,
Andi B. Goode
