On Saturday I went to a friends wedding. It's so strange when you start going to weddings where the bride and groom are significantly younger than you are. OK, it just makes me feel old!
Anyway, you may remember from this post that I was quite excited about choosing a vintage dress for said occasion. In the end, I resisted the lure of vintage lace and opted for this rather splendid vintage 50's house dress instead...
All the way from the lovely Two Squirrels Vintage. I just fell in love with the pattern. Also, I noticed it was among Helga's Etsy faves so I knew I was in good company! Despite my worries that it may not arrive on time, it got from New Zealand to me in just 4 days courtesy of the lovely Vanessa.
Ew, please excuse my strange pig face in this pic, don't know what happened there!
Isn't this brooch cute? It came all beautifully packaged with the dress.
These photos aren't the best quality. They were taken in a bit of a rush during a quick trip home to pick up calpol for Little Miss 5 as well as a sandwich cos we weren't eating til 4 o'clock and we were absolutely starving!
Despite it bucketing down with rain for the entire week prior, the weather on Saturday was absolutely glorious. The sun shined, champagne was sipped, along with lots of Glenfiddich, and a great time was had by all.
Dress & brooch: Two Squirrels Vintage
Tights: New Look
Bag: Vintage, gift
I'll leave you with some pics of today's outfit. We went to my sister's house which is part of a gorgeous old detached mock tudor, so I thought I would take advantage of the scenic background
I got 2 days out of my hair and cardi at least! Also, I finally got to wear my turquoise suede shoes again after weeks of rain
Hope a lovely weekend was had by all.
Ciao for now
