Lace dress








Just a little post to show off two recent purchases, this lace dress and these clogs. I'm still uming and ahing about the clogs. They are super comfy but I don't like to buy anything that I don't think I'll want to wear the same time next year, I like things to have a bit of longevity. So we'll see. I've been after a lace 60's style mini dress for months, and having trawled etsy for the perfect one, I ended up finding this in Warehouse sale. Sorry about the tights, I think this vintage Swiss dot pair are just too small, as I ended up laddering them trying to hoist them up, oops. The hat is vintage too, I felt slightly like I was going to a 1960s tea party in this outfit.

  3. I.LOVE.IT. the dress is gorgeous&fabulous and i love the tights (too bad they are no more...) i feel the same way about clogs--i've been coveting them like crazy but i can't justify spending $100+ on a pair of shoes that is so trendy. i'm still on the lookout for a bargain pair, though :) with a high, high heel of course!

  4. The dress is just lovely, I think that's going to be my summer hunt for next year, along with the perfect yellow dress!
    And I think you should keep the clogs. True, clogs were very trendy this year, but I think yours are a bit lower and less blinged-out than the catwalk clogs... more classic!
