Birthday Dress

A couple of years ago I posted about the tradition of buying myself a dress specifically to wear on my birthday. The dress would ideally be vintage and a daytime style to be worn throughout the entire day, as I usually have things planned for myself on the day of my birthday. This year I have found a 1950's cotton dress in pastel pink and white with beautiful embroidery detail, mother of pearl buttons and petticoat. A little faded in places but no less lovable, it will be the perfect lady-like dress for the birthday activities I have in mind in a couple of weeks.
