Polka Dots and Giant Buttons

Visiting the Classic Car Boot made me want to wear something vintage, or just vintage inspired.I wish I had the commitment to dress full on vintage every day but in real life I work in an office and don't have the energy to backcomb a beehive every morning. I am so envious of those who do live out the vintage dream on a daily basis. Trends are so transient and having an era to dress for must make life easier in some aspects, hair styling time aside. Although I am a fickle girl and love dabbling in seasonal trends too much to only dress from one decade. If I had to pick a decade to dress from I'd be torn between the 1950s and the 1980s - I love the femininity of the former decade and the power dressing brashness of the latter. This outfit takes a bit from both (as well as combining true vintage and vintage-inspired).

  6. That's a gorgeous dress, I love my vintage dresses and for me it's the 40's and 50's style I love, although I think my dresses are probably from the 80's!
