OOTD: Vintage Florals


I recently participated in a fashion show for The Grassmarket Vintage Festival. The dress I got to wear for said show basically stole my heart so of course it is now in my possession. 

Finally we got to see just a hint of summer over the last week which give me the perfect chance to wear my glorious vintage floral maxi dress!
This week I celebrated Sam and I's five year anniversary as well as his 34th birthday this weekend. I also headed along to the amazing launch night of Flamingosarus Rex, which I will be posting about very soon.

Of course all good weeks have their bad points. One of the biggest ones being the state of my health. After having the flu a couple not that long ago, I still seem to be suffering from the after effects of it. At the time of writing this, I am currently suffering from lovely sinus problems, mainly I seem to have gone a little deaf in one ear.

So when Saturday came along and it was time to celebrate Sam's birthday, I wasn't going to let my horrible falling apart body get in the way of fun times. So I shoved on my new vintage dress and hit the town!

Dress - Vintage

Boots - New Look

If you are a vintage shopping fan like myself you will know that sometimes it can be a frustrating experience. You may find the most glorious bit of clothing but alas the chances of it fitting are risky. So when you come across a vintage item that fits you like a glove, it is a beautiful moment. One that you should never ever turn down.

As soon as I was fitted into this dress for the fashion show, I knew it was meant to be. I never rarely wear 70s style dresses but I just fell in love with this one. From the beautiful heavy floral skirt to the gorgeous off the shoulder top. 

In keeping with my own usual style I gave the dress a 'goth' edge with my black leather jacket and cross necklace.

Have you ever felt that perfect moment when you have been vintage shopping? 

Till the next time!



  1. I love this dress! Especially teamed with more gothic style accessories.
    I tried on a really lovely 50s tea dress once and it fit like a glove which as you say is always the time you should snap a vintage piece up. It's a rare moment! Sadly I looked at the price tag and it was waaaay out of my budget. I was so sad to say goodbye to it!

    1. Thank you!

      Aw that is always such a gutting moment. You know if you were on budget, you wouldn't find anything. It is always the way!


  2. Gorgeous!! I am also a vintage lover and vintage florals are a massive fave! This dress looks amazing on you and I'm also loving your hair!! How lucky that you got to be in a fashion show I'm jealous!

  3. Love, love, love this outfit! I love vintage stuff, in both clothing and the home. I've just started planning my wedding and I can certainly feel a vintage theme coming on! ☺️ Xx

    1. Thanks!

  4. Wow that dress is beautiful! I am a huge fan of vintage X

  6. I love this on you, Emily! I never wear 70s either - it's rare you find pieces from that era that aren't like sacks on me, but this is amazing! x

    1. Thank you lovely. Yeah I think I tried to avoid 70s as it was so popular last year haha!
