I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart

Dress: vintage.  Belt: Primark.  Boots: River Island (old).  Lipstick: Revlon 028 Cherry Blossom.

Another day, another dress to add to my collection.  

This particular dress was another impulse buy.  I was coming home from the gym and walked past the market stalls that are set up every Saturday outside the market in Cardiff.  There are about 3 regular vintage stalls that are there every weekend and they have a great selection of vintage items.  They aren't the dowdy sad things you tend to see in the charity shops by train stations but carefully selected and collected by the stall owner.  I saw this dress and walked on but I couldn't get it out of my mind.  And here we are.  I love the print, the little collar, the fact that it has sleeves and the midi length.  I was worried it wouldn't fit me well (the constant battle of dresses with low waistlines clashing with my hips) but it fits me like a glove and sits perfectly.  What a dream.  It's from the 1950's and I managed to haggle it down to paying only £22 for it.  Can't wait to loose the tights for summer and wear pretty summer shoes instead of boots.  

Paris in two days! Squeeee
