Overseas Package




This morning, a lovely package arrived for me from Singapore. I buy things from Etsy a lot, usually originating from the US. I think this is the furthest away from which I have ever received anything. There is something so lovely and old-fashioned to receiving a package or letter through the post. As much as I love the fast pace of technology, I'm definitely a traditional and old-fashioned girl at heart.

This adorable pink vintage dress (yes, another!) I found through flickr and bought from this site. I love looking through this girl's photographs, everything so feminine and girly - just what I like! The dress is a perfect fit, I fell in love it immediately when I first saw it - thank you so much Karyn!

This is insanely beautiful! The buttons and belt detail - just gorgeous. You should model it!

Love it!
I buy almost everything online...all the vintage things, because Italy is not exactly the place for vintage, but also new things. I live 200miles away from the nearest H&M and the stores here in my town are not properly affordable, so...

Yes I love Etsy too...once I shopped a print from Etsy and the girl sent me the picture in a pink bow...it was so adorable.

The dress is beyond beautiful.
Congrats, great choice :-)

I only came across you blog today and it is so gorgeous! I love your pictures, especially the one of the party rings. I've not found many English vintage blogs apart from Sadie really so I was pleased to find you. I've added you to my blog list
