red floral dress, puff sleeves

red puffs a

I got this dress a month or so ago, and have pretty much wanted to live in it ever since. I love how the '70s referenced the '30s and '40s, and this classic '70s-does-late-'30s-slash-early-'40s (say that three times!) is definitely a new favourite.

And these are, I believe, my most comfortable pair of heels ever. I got them months ago from Re-Mix Vintage Shoes and I absolutely love them. The pink bows are clips, and I wore them in this post here – I think shoe clips are a nice little thing to have. In fact, I love these shoes so much I have a pair in ivory on the way... and I wanted a pair in the red, too. And the black... oh dear!

Gorgeous dress and perfect accesories.

Stunning outfit, the matching hair flower and shoes really make it. It is so fortunate that there was a bit of a 30s revival in the 70s, because actualy 30s stuff is so hard to come by these days... not to mention often very tiny, and in precariously delicate fabrics!

wow your dress is amazing, beautiful print :)

Trishna said...

This dress is so simple but so gorgeous and I kind of understand why you'd think the shoes are comfortable. I have a pair much like it and just the combination of the heel height and platform makes them my go to pair of heels, they are now so worn down that they have holes in the satin, so I am going to check out remix vintage shoes right now.

Love the flower in your hair, reminds me its spring in the faraway country you live in.

Love from Toronto, Canada
