cherchez la femme

19 June 2010

I love this dress. I feel like I have been transported back to the 60s (which of course is where I would very much like to be!). I was taking photos for my Trade Me listings (the usual Saturday drill) and decided that I wanted to play dress up even though I will not be leaving the house today. So I paired it with my new sheer polka dot tights and these cute little oxford heels (which you can't really see too well).

I am listening to old records that we found yesterday at the Salvation Army - Dionne Warwick, Connie Francis, Dusty Springfield, Nat King Cole - and wasting away the afternoon all dolled up with nowhere to go - and happy about it!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.


PS. I am currently playing around with my blog template. My boyfriend is going to design it for me! So keep an eye out for various states of change - I'm really excited!

Wearing: 1960s Mod Dress ( RedVelvetArt), Black Sheer Polka Dot Tights (Trade Me), Vintage Black Oxfords (Thrifted)


  1. i LOVE the dress! And you pull it off very well-hope you're not selling this one! And I am in love with your wall paper.

    xx Claire


  2. It's cute isn't it?! No, just bought this dress so definitely not selling it! I love the wallpaper too - my little apartment has floral wallpaper and retro fittings/nooks and crannies right through it - I LOVE it and will be so sad to leave it at the start of next year (we're moving) x

  3. You look fantastic! That dress is just adorable, and I loved how you've styled it with the dot-print tights and oxfords. x

  4. Sweet stuff.. there's definitely something happening with those hair braids, I've seen them on two other blogs very recently! Unfortunately my own follicles refuse to be tamed in this manner...

  5. How exciting that you are moving to Melbourne! I hope you find a place just as nice to decorate :) I love your hair as well--might have to try that out for myself!

  6. Cute outfit, and what a great afternoon!

  7. ooh this dress is so pretty!

    {no, it's not about birds}

  8. Perfect dress!!!
