I've been testing out some of my not-yet-worn summer dresses in anticipation of warmer weather. Of course, as it is not yet warm, I've had to wear cardigans and things but I've at least had a feel of whether or not I really like the dresses. This is just one of said dresses, which I wore...somewhere. It's a mystery! I bought it from etsy, a couple of months ago.
So, that was what I wore during the day on Friday. On Friday night I went out for yummy Indian food, shared with lovely (and possibly yummy) friends. I decided I needed a black dress for the occasion and spent a week, or so, scouring local vintage shops in hopes of finding one that I both liked and would fit me. I began to despair but then I found one that was perfect. Lucky me!
Early '60s dress found at Honey Hive Emporium, Prospect Road. It's the same label as this dress - fashioned by Gina of Melbourne. I think it's the third or fourth dress I've come by that was made by Gina. They've all been very simple. Oh, and a lovely girl told me I reminded her of the 'brunette that Marilyn had with her' - I assumed she meant Jane Russell. I was extremely flattered, of course! I love Jane.
And no more regrowth! Yay.
One of my favourite brooches. I don't accessorise much. I forget to put on things like rings and brooches, I stopped wearing necklaces as I found they get annoying when you're Lindy Hoppin' (and as I got out of the habit, I forget about them, too) and I often find bracelets irritate my skin. But some outfits just need a little bit of sparkle, don't they?
