"About bloomin' time."
Are you looking forward to Autumn? Winter? Still enjoying Summer?
Okay...this is a very different post for me... I only ever post photographs of what I wear NOT what I will wear or might wear or would wear. I don't dress for my blog. My blog exists because of the way I dress.
...but this dress is not what I wore today...well, I did wear it obviously, but not 'out'. I was in yoga gear most of the day. I broke my code. Sort of.
At the start of every season I 'transfer' my wardrobe... for the first few weeks, it's in 'transit', [eg. winter in to spring, there's still a few cool weeks ahead but I pack away all my heavy winter gear and make heaps of space for all my spring and summer wear! I love winter layers but they sure as hell take up a lot of space.]
Whilst I was doing this I decided to dig out my vintage dresses, seeing as I was feeling a vintage vibe this week plus I have decided to list some on eBay (maybe!)... found this delightful dress that my mum bought for me from a vintage store in LA in 1992 and seeing as I hadn't worn it for a long while (see last pic), I thought I would sell it so I put it on to photograph it.
Then I didn't bother taking it off until I had to go to yoga!!... and seeing as it was such a delightful day and the first day of Spring, etc, etc, I put on some lipstick, earrings and shoes and... I broke my code... sort of... I was already wearing the dress... and I fully intend to wear it somewhere soon again!
This photo was taken in 1997... last time I wore this dress! It was a retro themed night.
This is one of my old bands (our band leader in the white tie), a great bunch of musicians.
