Plaid, pockets and buttons

As I'm on a very strict budget at the moment, I've not bought very many new clothes, either new new or new-to-me vintage. However, before I put myself on a budget, I bought one last vintage dress from etsy as I just couldn't resist it - it's plaid! It has buttons and pockets! And contrasting cuffs & a collar!

It was an instant favourite and I had to wear it out straight away - so, I wore it to the Adelaide Ukulele Society meetup - and even wore it a few more times after that...

And, because I first wore this out to the Adelaide Ukulele Appreciation Society meet-up, here's a ukulele video for you all! I was asked by one of my YouTube ukulele pals if I would play the song Born Too Late by The Poni-Tails, so I did. It's a really cute song and I hope you enjoy my version of it. Here's the original for reference.



Oh, and while we are on the topic of ukuleles I did a guest post at Lollipops and Roses where I show off my uke, Sugar Kane.

Love,

  5. That dress was definitely worth breaking your budget for... it's so darling!!! What a great vibrant plaid, and I like the vaguely waitress-y detailing! Also, the "Ukulele Appreciation Society" sounds like the cutest and most fun thing ever.

  6. Love (!) your hair here, sweet Andi. There's something so delightful fun, girly, and youthful about partnering braided pigtails with a big bow. If I can somehow coax enough thickness (or rather, the smoke and mirrors appearance of thickness) out of my hair, I'll have to give this look a shot once the weather warms up here.

    Wishing you a gorgeous Friday & weekend,
    ♥ Jessica

  7. That dress is so lovely you did right to buy it, it would have been so wrong to let such a gorgeous thing slip away!

  8. When I saw "plaid, pockets and buttons" I knew I would love the dress--and I do! And white piqué trim, too! Lovely song--could be the theme song for all us vintage lovers. Brava!
