A rather brief post, this time, to show off my lovely new-to-me yellow dress! I was waiting to get my new black petticoat to wear with it but, alas, it did not arrive in time - I'd had my heart set on wearing it when Mum and I went to see Wicked (for the second time, the first being in Melbourne in 2008) so I had to wear it with my other petticoats...all three of them!
Details: 1950s hat - etsy; black belt - op-shop; 1950s dress - Exclusive Vintage; gloves - Salvos; vintage stockings - ?; shoes - Rubi Shoes.
I really love the design on this dress - I suppose it could almost look like the paving on a Yellow Brick Road, couldn't it?
And here's a shot of Mum and I together.
We both enjoyed the show a lot - it was every bit as magnificent as I remember it being and I even cried a little, despite my best efforts not to, lest my mascara run. I'd write more but I'm not in the mood - the costumes, sets...everything was amazing. I'll just leave it at that. There are a few other blog posts I've got lined up but they require putting more effort into text so I'll tackle them when I am in the mood.
Hope everyone has been enjoying their long weekends, if you celebrate the holiday or not!
