Hope you all had a good weekend, my lovelies (and see the bottom of the post for my GIVEAWAY details)!

I just  this dress… I don’t wear it nearly often enough, which is silly really because it’s soft, comfortable and made up of such pretty colours. And the belt I’ve added is a genuine 80s (so I’m told) vintage belt – I bought one each in black, navy and white a few years ago when I first discovered them on eBay. In fact if you’d like one, you should be able to pick one up that’s exactly the same (from at least the UK and the US) if you search for “vintage butterfly belt”. I did a search just now and found 12 of the same style, in red, yellow, blue, black… oh dear, I’m even thinking of getting one or two more now πŸ˜‰

I’m assuming then that these belts must have been a popular trend at the time – though strangely I don’t remember them myself. Does anyone else remember them first time around…?

Thanks for stopping by… oh and don’t forget my GIVEAWAY if you haven’t yet checked it out – I have TEN PRIZES up for grabs – click here to enter!

    Oh yes, I had a butterfly belt in the 80's, loved it then, and it looks so pretty now on you! Lovely dress too, it looks grand as a tunic here. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday!

    You look lovely. What a great outfit. That tunic is so unique. I would never have considered it, but seeing it on you, now I would.

    You are a perfect example of what I just posted about with regard to hearts and pink – done is a way which broadcasts wicked awesome style rather than grossly over-sweet – I know I keep saying this, but Catherine, you're stunning!

    Great look Catherine! That dress is lovely, looks great with the skinny jeans which you have then balanced out wonderfully with those gorgeous wedges! The belt is also a lovely touch πŸ™‚

    Take care,

    Ah, the 80's! I say get 'em in every color!!! I have seen variations on this theme at ModCloth and other retailers with a vintagey vibe. I heart your dress too, Catherine! ~Sarah
