I have a new obsession – novelty prints from the 1930's and 1940's. This palest pink rayon dress has a swirling wagon print and I love it! I wore it yesterday for some shopping in the city. Thanks to John for snapping these!
vintage dress (1940s), bag from mimco, shoes from next.com., bracelets from lovisa – and I will post about accessories and jewelry very soon!
I love the old buildings in Melbourne, and the great shops hidden away upstairs. Look at the view!
Coffee and rosehip tea were absolutely necessary. Shopping (this time for John) is thirsty work. Thirsty, enjoyable work! I actually prefer shopping for other people!
We got the train home, rather than the tram. It was a revelation; getting the train is about a billionty times better than the tram. I love the view from the train, too. It's a great way to see another side of inner Melbourne.
This dress is definitely a new favourite. The rayon is so amazingly comfortable. The only down side is washing it; I hand washed it once, and while I am chuffed (and relieved!) that the colours didn't run at all, it did shrink the tiniest bit. This time it was a good thing as the dress was a little big for me. Now it is comfortably perfect. One more wash, and will it shrink to be well fitted? And then sung? And then what?! Time will tell..! I loathe dry cleaning, but I might just have to suck it up in this case. Anyway, that's a small thorn. I am going to have to find me some more great print rayon dresses!
