God bless America - outfit post

I have long longed for something vintage from the U S of A. I have had some dodgy duffs in the past (although the customer service had to be battled for -  I did get a refund in the end and got to keep the dress - so I can't complain) and I have had some glorious winners.

Apologies again for the kitchen shot. It's the only relatively decent light. There is no excuse for the hat hair.

This -  for me -  is one of them. Now  - it is not strictly vintage. I say this, because it's 80's -  and being born in 1980, I take umbridge with being "vintage". That's just me. But, it is lovely! I can deal with being that. *wink*


I'm not too sure what it is made out of, but it washes well and I love the colour and the neckline. And it was a steal for £10.13 (god bless eBay lurking too)

Over and out .

  1. Love that print. And the 80s are a rich rich source of older style vintage, all you gotta do is take out the supersonic shoulder pads! x

  2. Oooh that is a great print.

    I love 70s and 80s stuff, so much of it has a really good 30s and 40s style AND you can fling it in the washing machine!
