I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to wear this dress ever since I bought it (at the Unique Vintage store in LA earlier this summer), and I figured this weekend was as good a time as any! No special occasional, really, but then, you know me: I don’t really need an excuse to get totally overdressed. (Well, you can’t take it with you, can you?)
The shoes are also one of my favourites:
These were from River Island, and I bought them last year, to mark Shoeperwoman.com’s first birthday. Because yes, I buy shoes for my blog. Ahem.
This weekend I finally learned how to use one of those hair donut things to make a bun, having owned one for years without having the slightest idea what to do with it. I think I’m just going to wear my hair like this ALL the time now: it was so quick and easy to do, I was kicking myself for not working it out sooner!
This was also the first time in a long time that I didn’t absolutely hate every photo I took of myself, so I may have gotten a little bit carried away.
The single pearl I’m wearing here belongs to my mum, and I wore it on my wedding day, along with the pearl bracelets. I liked the way they looked with the lace of the dress – a nice, vintage kind of feel!
These shoes also fall into the category of “been wearing them, just haven’t bothered to photograph them”. Because I wear such a lot of navy, they work with a large percentage of my wardrobe, so I’m glad I finally got round to officially “saving” them!
