Love Quality Timelessness!!
I’ve always loved and appreciated beautiful things from the past and my home is full of many pre-loved pieces of furniture, rugs and bits and bobs.
It follows that I would also love to see such love of the qualities of the past translated into many of my clothing choices!
As a person who cares about the future of the planet and who likes to watch their budget, I’m very aware of the sustainability aspect of buying second hand clothing.
This 1980’s dress is in perfect condition and the fit is all that I could possibly wish for to celebrate a nice dinner at home to commemorate ANZAC Day, remembering the fallen soldiers from the Australian New Zealand Army Corps in past conflicts – a time where we may have attended the local war memorial to engage with community and pay respects, of course, with COVID-19 it was a stay at home situation – and it’s grateful I am to those that have sacrificed so much, that I may have a home to feel safe in and to enjoy!
The colours and print of this dress are beautiful and vibrant and are ideal for the autumn season that is upon us in the Southern Hemisphere, and a button down dress is always versatile.
Fine Fitting and Sweet Details!
I have been staggered that a dress that was actually home-made over thirty years ago is such a fabulous fit on me – the waist is cinched and comfortable and there is plenty of room across the shoulders.
Although I am petite I have a strong build, having developed broad shoulders from years of swimming every morning before school, lifting weights and enjoying the occasional bout of push-ups so it’s great that the style of this dress gives plenty of room for movement and that the sleeves are comfy on my lymphodoema!
I added my cute suede booties, purple earrings and sexy fishnets and lingerie so I could feel great from the inside out – I feel a sexy lingerie post on its way very soon!!
Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web and I hope you are going along ok during this very tricky time!!
