I just about screamed when I found these shoes. Ok, well, I squealed like a little piggie (Eeeeeee!), which is kind of the same. They are EXACTLY what I've been wanting for ages, and even though they are the teeniest bit big, I just wear socks and all is well. It's a nice change from trying to fit into the same style shoes that are two sizes too small/narrow.
And the dress my dears, I just love this dress. It's that weight of material that clings and drapes beautifully, would make a great dancing dress if I danced!
Instead of pairing it with bakelite I went with a locket and and my mothers charm bracelet, they kept the look soft and romantic, and I jingled every time I moved :) You can see it here, I couldn't get a great picture of it in the fading light.

That is such a pretty dress!

So I guess you know how I felt when I found TWO pairs of black brogues at the thrift shop last time I went. Some times the thrifting goddess is on your side :)

I love it when you wear your cute white socks (just like the ones I always wear) with black shoes. Those shoes look really comfortable and go great with that pretty dress. Such a classy outfit!

A bit big? Wow! Lucky lucky. Shoes like that usually run so painfully small. I drive myself crazy trying to find them in my size (8-8.5). You look lovely as always!

I love your locket...I've recently found two that were my grandmother's in my attic. I was really pleased to find them as I've recently started trying to build a collection of vintage clothes- tricky as I'm 5'10 and everyone in my family down the generations seems to be under 5 foot! So what does everyone think the essential vintage buys are for a beginner? B x
