3 New Dresses

Yesterday, I received not one but three new-old vintage dresses through the post from Etsy. I must admit that clothing makes me very happy. This may make me sound superficial but I guess a lot of you are probably the same, that's mostly why we have fashion blogs at the end of the day.

I know for a fact that if I begin my day wearing a beautiful dress, I am going to have a good feeling which will last throughout the day. Granted, my choice of beautiful will not be to everyone's taste. But then, I don't really care about that. Fashion for me, is how an item of clothing makes me feel, it's not about anyone else.

  4. These dresses are gorgeous

    I love the colour of the green one, the stripes of the middle one and the beading on the first champagne coloured one :) :)

  5. it's definitely best to go for what you individually like rather than what everyone is wearing. you've got such an individual and distinct look. i think all the dresses look gorgeous. my favourite is the first though. xx

  8. Clothes really do have the ability to lift the mood! I don't think that's being superficial at all - a bouquet of flowers, a cup of tea with friends, sunshine - all of those give us good feelings, too. And yes, your taste is your taste; if it makes YOU feel good, that's all that matters! Although you know that all your blog readers think you look amazing in EVERYTHING you wear, and that you have SUPERB taste, so if anyone says otherwise... they're wrong. :P

  11. So so lovely. I especially like the stripes - that would cheer up any day! Are you going to make any alterations?

    I totally agree, whenever I feel a bit down, I put on a great outfit and heels and it makes you feel so much more confident and ready to face anything!

    I'm on my .com now if you like to swap links? :) Sarah x

  12. Great finds - I love the cream and the green one! How do you do it? I find lots of lovely things online but am pretty poor at judging the quality and guessing whether it will be the right size. So I chicken out...

    If you ever felt like doing a how to guide, I'd be number one in the queue to read it!

  22. Clothing, and dresses in particular, make me insanely happy. There's nothing like slipping on a new dress, a pretty pair of shoes and heading out for the night - it makes me feel alive.

    Your dresses are prettier than most too, so you must be extra happy! :)

  27. What beautiful dresses, I bet they look even nicer on! Often in real life I feel guilty for getting so much pleasure from clothes and pretty things, it's nice to have my lovely online world where everyone is happy to admit the same!

  30. Oh I love that green one! What a great colour. I know what you mean, sometimes I feel superficial for being made happy by clothes so much, but I'm sure other people are made happy by much worse things haha

  32. The lacy one is to die for! And the green one certainly will look amazing with your dark hair. :) You really have a talent to find amazing stuff on the internet! There is so many nice vintage dresses I'd love to buy, but as I'm not really small in size I can't buy something without trying on first.

    And fashion should always be about our own personal style, not about following trends. You've got it absolutely right. :)

  33. I feel exactly the same way, a pretty dress makes even the worst of days have a silver lining. Especially vintage dresses for some reason..

  34. That green dress could not be any more perfect, huh? Can't wait to see you wear it!
