2012-08-18 Not Dressed As Lamb 003

In June of this year I started to fret that summer was never going to come to the UK (oh, the rain), and with that came the fear that all my pretty summer dresses would go unworn. But we have had a few gorgeous days, and if this was the only time that I got to wear my prized vintage eBay white cotton dress, then so be it!

I think the great thing about buying vintage is that it's less likely to date quickly. I hope so, anyway :)

Happy weekend everybody! Have a good one!

  3. Im heading to ebay right now in search of hats. I've seen you and a few bloggers wearing and they add such an edge to an outfit. Besides it much stylish than beanie hats in Winter. The dress looks great on you and I guess the beauty of not being able to wear your summer dresses is you can pair them with leggings or tights come next season.

  22. Absolute perfect again, Catherine! I ADORE the contrast of the feminine dress with the more masculine details of the hat, belt, and oversized watch. For me, this look is a 10!!! ~Sarah
