cloudy lavender and soft powder blue

1950s-prom-dress-vintage e I've been thinking a bit about my 1950's blue prom dress lately. It's so beautiful and I've only worn it once. It needs to get out into the world a lot more! 1950s-prom-dress-vintage d I love vintage tulle dresses but they aren't the kind of thing you can wear everyday, really! I was so chuffed to find this one, as the pale powder blue, lavender and touch of silver are just perfect. 1950s-prom-dress-vintage c Although I will try wearing it again this winter, with a jumper and heels – we'll just have to see if it works. 1950s-prom-dress-vintage f 1950s-prom-dress-vintage b Because floaty clouds of soft tulle feel wonderful. 1950s-prom-dress-vintage a

I've never really cared what others thought, if I felt like dressing in a certain way and I was comfortable with it and it's wasn't to unfit for the situation (stilettos and dozens of metal accesories in the airport par example) I'd say go for it! It's a stunning dress, it should really be taken out in the world <3

Lots of love,

That really is the kind of enchantingly beautiful vintage dress that makes one sigh dreamily. It's so very gorgeous...I wish I had one just like.

Lovely! I just adore tulle too! I wish I went out more so that I could wear it.

Love these colours together and adore that prom dress. So very cute, I have a dress that I love just as much but have only worn once, really need to get it out of the closet and find a good occasion to wear it out! xx

It's a shame there is a dress code for some places. How happy it would make me if tulle ballgowns were allowed to be worn in an office

Becky said...

It is absolutely beautiful. You're very lucky!

Just wear it, that dress does not need an excuse to be worn... the prettyness IS the reason to wear it.

I adore that dress, I'm still looking for a similair one myself...

What about layering a creamy or powder blue LS merino tee underneath? Paired with a classic string of pearls, naturally! Ruby
