mondays, 1930s dresses and vintage cocktail dresses

pink-1930s a Happy Monday to you! I think it is appropriate that I am posting these today as they are from a Monday, although it was two weeks ago. I don't think time has ever flown so fast for me in my life! Anyway, no matter, they are of when Trish and I went to a local bar for a wine and a tea (yes, really!) and we were of course wearing our vintage. Why not dress up during the week? Trish was wearing a great brown and black cocktail dress and I wore my shell pink 1930's dress and my vintage white fur cape. pink-1930s b pink-1930s c I love the ruffles at the front although I look kind of grumpy about it all, ha! pink-1930s h And it was really nice to soak up the sunset, and feel the last warm rays before the cold night settled in. pink-1930s g pink-1930s f trish-brown-black And it was especially nice to pose in front of nice looking houses, followed by the nice bar. I think Monday nights spent like this should become something of a regular thing..! trish-brown-black b

You both look glam...love the dresses...lush!! It's nice to see dressed up gals, even if its to a bar...most just wear ragged jeans with not much thought. Life is too short not to play dress up every day :)) Wish you a wonderful week x

Miss Louise : oh thank you! It was fun all day with the dress :)

Anders E : we were really lucky to be there at that moment, it was great :)

Roxie Roulette : thanks! I want to do better and better ...

laura redburn : haha thank you :) I am kinda picky with what I post!

Circus Girl (Zoë) : oh thank you! It's funny how we can get out of the habit with doing hair, isn't it. It seems like it takes so much time but it's never really all that long. And it's fun!

Lucy In The Sky : :D x

you look so good! how do you do that? you look amazing in every dress and colour, peachy pink, bright pink, soft, dark and hard yellow, green, red, brown, grey,... your skin is always so beautiful :-)

You both look lovely! I believe one can never be overdressed, or that going out on a weekday for no particular occasion in your best vintage is a no-no. It's better than it sitting in the closet!
