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!
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

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!
