This was the first 1940s dress I bought myself, and it remains a favourite. It's comfortable and easy to wear, and I adore both the colour and print. In fact it just occurs to me that the print would make a great companion to my ballroom belles vintage repro print - it dates from the same era, too. Anyway, although you've seen it several times before I love finding new ways to wear it! Versatile clothes are the best.
Notice anything different about my hair? I had a few inches off at the weekend - a bunch of us got together at Shona's house with a travelling hairdresser for the day, before going to the launch party for Style Me Vintage (an absolutely delightful book - my review will be up later this week) in the evening. I love my hair when it's just been cut and styled professionally - she gave it a lovely bouncy, loose curl, which is why I decided to wear it loose with the headscarf rather than tying it up. (sorry about the squint - the sun was really bright as I was taking these!)
Dress, ebay; Cardigan, from a family friend's mother's estate; Swift brooch, car boot sale; Pearls, gift from mother; Polka dot scarf, purchased in India; Swiss dot tights, Lidl; Gloves, can't remember; Shoes, Marks & Spencer; Earrings (you can't really see, but they're little pink hats!), purchased in Thailand.
And also... Happy pancake day everyone! What's your favourite topping? Mine's classic traditional lemon and sugar, though very closely followed by maple syrup. PS: Mummy, please no more comments about weight gained - am on diet.
