 Dear Fashion Diary,

 Warning: get ready for twirl pictures.

A lot of times when I wear a sleevless dress and don't want a sweater over it, I put a cardigan on Under it, so the dress doesn't lose it's silhouette. Totally worked!

This twirl shot was just outrageous enough to put up here.

Ok. This dress.  *new favorite*
 I was perusing all the vintage items at a local antique store flea market
when I came across my favorite seller. She always is 
stocked full of vintage goodies any girl would want! I have had a genuine vintage dress
 on my wish list for I don't know how many years.
When I spotted this beauty I knew I couldn't say no. She let me try it on,
and I barely squeezed into it (WOW they had tiny waists back then) and bought it!
Beauty is pain, right? Worth it.
I love the buttons on the side and on the left shoulder if you noticed. 
It even looks handmade. I wonder who wore it first?!
I could spin around in this thing every day. 
Sometimes a girl just needs to feel girly. (For me that's all the time....)

Dress: Vintage (flea market)//Shoes: F21//Cardigan: Gap//Necklace: handmedown//Belt:vintage

joy said...

Pretty pretty pretty! I LOVE the vintage dress (ahh it is always so interesting to think about who wore it before) and it is so perfect for twirling in! And the bow necklace is so cute. By the way, that is so genius to wear a cardigan underneath so that it won't lose the shape. I'll have to try that sometime!
