Red, white & a dash of black - outfit post


I am a little bit in love with this particular 80's does 40's dress. It was one of the first frocks I bought from Etsy and I was worried that it might not have fitted. But, I need not have done.



From this picture, you can see that I stepped out on what must have been a sun shiney day. Which means it did not get a lot of wear this summer. But I am toying with the idea of teaming it with trusty brogues or some red mary janes for the cooler months ahead.


Or, I might just wash it and store it for next year, wherein I shall eeeep with excitement at finding it, having forgotten all about it. It makes me feel decidedly home-maker-ish. And, dare I say it, a little lady like.

For those of you who know me, when I open my mouth, all such illusions are instantly shattered, never to return. Ho hum.

Yay for Etsy and it's illusion creating dress -  for under £15 including postage.

  1. I think you were wearing this at Ewell, and mighty fine it looked too. We went to Hammersmith Vintage Fair on Sunday which was fab, if you ever fancy it.

  4. The dress is lovely, I am sure it would look lovely with brogues for the Autumn and then maybe you could squirrel it away until next spring, to be re found and re loved.

  5. Cute dress and I also think it would look nice with brogues for autumn as the red looks quite autumnal!

  6. I think it would work very well for Autumn too, with a cardigan and some tights, it's really pretty. I can't be trusted near my computer at the moment - I bought a dress this morning before I'd even had my breakfast!
