vintage red dress, flowers and a party

vintage dress (1940s), hair flower from sportsgirl, socks from forever new, shoes by zu, bag by mimco, bangles by lovisa

Every now and then I find something that is just so right for me. Yes, ok, it tends to mean dresses, sometimes it's shoes, but it is really nice to have something that you feel so completely comfortable in. Something that feels so right.

This vintage red dress is one such thing. Another 1940's printed rayon dress, the colours, the print and the style are exactly – exactly – what I want. I feel it expresses something for me perfectly.

I wore it for the first time to a party at Domain Flowers. You may have noticed that I am rather fond of flowers! Being surrounded by beautiful arrangements is heaven to me. As is being surrounded by lovely people.

The floral print on your dress is so unusual! All of the parties you've been going to lately look so decadent, it's like you're in a Sofia Coppola film :)
