This was the post I had lined up before one cycle trip, a coffee and a cat took precedence, hey sometimes life gets in the way of blogging!
One day a while ago I got an email from a blog friend Mel she was in Belfast for the day and had a surprise parcel for me. I arrived home to find a parcel on the doorstep inside the brightest yellow 1970's dress and a note from Mel saying that she thought this dress was made for me! Mel was right I love this dress, the shape and colour are perfect and I love the checked fabric detail however I had issues with the collar. Maybe it's because I have short hair but the collars did not look right on me. So after altering the dress to fit my size I decided to remove the collar and cuffs, and I love it even more now and feel much more comfortable wearing it! Thank you so much Mel for this gorgeous dress! It will be loved and worn forever more and that's the joy of vintage!
This Old Thing hosted by Dawn O'Porter, all you vintage fashion lovers are you watching? Dawn's wardrobe for the show is divine I can't argue with that but I would have liked to see some real life vintage wearing people like Vix or Curtise grace the screens, maybe next time channel 4 you'll feature vintage lovers not haters.
Have a great week everyone xxxx
