Outfit(s): Friday & Sunday

The other week I watched Sally Potter's The Man Who Cried (which I mentioned in this post) and I've been meaning to do a post on it ever since. However, I have an awful lot of screenshots to go through and I hurt my foot today and I've decided to sulk a little bit and do an outfit post instead. So, here are some shots of me in two of the dresses I bought when I was in Melbourne.

I wore this one out to lunch with my dad last Friday:

Outfit details: 1950s/60s dress - American Rag Vintage; belt - ?; shoes - Rubi Shoes.

This was hemmed so that it sat above the knee. It was, in my opinion, yucky. Though you can still see where it was folded over for years and years (after pressing it twice, too) so we're soaking it and pressing it again. Anyway, much nicer length now I say! I wore it with a paper nylon petticoat I bought at Hero Vintage before they closed (er, obviously before they closed). It's quite different to anything else I own, which makes it a nice change, I think. As a side note, I was completely in love with my hair that day.



I do enjoy taking photos of my feet...

As an extra surprise Dad brought 'round his old portable Philips transistor radio for me to keep!

Philips Transistor Radio

Isn't it lovely? I think it's from the early '60s. I really love the design and it's a very lovely shade of grey, too.

Then, today I wore this lovely pink dress...I've been wearing it belted but I'm having a lazy day today so no belt. I think it still looks OK this way, too.

Outfit details: 1950s dress - Vintage Garage; socks - ?; shoes - Spendless.



And here is a picture of my lovely mum looking lovely. She doesn't know I'm posting this! Sneaky.

Hope everyone is having a swell weekend! I'll be back with a post on The Man Who Cried, soon, as well as last night's outfit post.

  1. I love the first dress! The crease isn't that noticable, at least not in the pictures (might be different in real life), I didn't think about it until you mentioned it. The lenght is perfect now! And I like the soft fullness from the petticoat, very cute.

    What a stylish mother you have! I can def see a resemblance... =)

  2. I am in LOVE with that first dress, so summery and fresh. And it looks great with the dainty ballet flats. Your mums dress is pretty sweet too, what a cutie!

  3. What a cool radio! And a cool dad too for keeping it all these years and gifting it to you.

    Love your striped dress. So fun and cheery.
