black rose vintage dress

blaflo a

I have this beautiful vintage dress, but as it is quite a formal one, I haven't worn it as much as I'd like. But, now it is (so much!) colder here, I can wear it layered with cardigans and jackets, and hats and gloves...

vintage dress and gloves, jacket and scarf from an op shop, hat from barkins online, flower from sportsgirl, tights from welovecolors.com, shoes from melissa

This is from a couple of days ago, when it was really cold but also really sunny. Perfect for being in the snowy mountains, if possible...

And this is what trees in Melbourne look like in winter.

Even though it's layered under your coat, I can still see the "prettiness" of this dress! The print is absolutely gorgeous:)

Lovely! I'm very taken with floral prints lately... My psychology study tells me it's because in times of economic downturn, women aim to enhance their femininity. I think it's jsut because they are beautiful sxo

Blithely Unaware: thanks love, you too! :D

Q's Daydream: thanks! I have been looking at her website a lot lately :)


Sher: thanks! It really is one of my best finds :) I took pics of just the dress but I still had my beret on so I looked a bit ridiculous hehe ;)

Sarah: really, that's interesting... I guess there are historic patterns to support that, too. I just love floral prints, like you do! :D

Vanessa, Take only Memories: thanks! And I'm sure you don't :)

retrostyl: thanks very much!
