I finally figured out what Instagram is for.
To find new places to buy vintage clothing.
Thanks to Beth from One Sweet Thread that I found on Instagram I was able to score this authentic vintage 1960’s style dress in excellent condition.
Normally I would stay far away from a sheath dress that doesn’t define my waist, but I was drawn to the neckline on this.
This dress is just a titch tight across the stomach/hip area. I can get away with it, but I’d just feel better if I lost five pounds.
Go away five pounds. You’re not welcome anymore.
Sure you were fun to put on, disguised in the cloak of Christmas cookies, bread and chocolate, but now I’d like you to pack your blubber and leave.
I don’t care if I’m being rude.
You have overstayed your welcome.
I’m wearing a very sweet vintage insect brooch as well. At least I *think* it is vintage. Sometimes it is hard to tell.
The dress even works with my thrifted vintage leopard coat.
I love the cut and colour of this 1960’s style dress. I know many people don’t care for orange, but it is one of my favourite colours to wear.
How do you like my pouffy hair? Believe me, getting my hair to stand up like that is no small feat. My hair is fine and thin, but after adding handfuls of mousse to my dry hair, backcombing the crap out of it and hair spraying an inch within my life I was able to change the texture of my hair to borderline thick. Now if I only had the patience to do all of that daily.
I blame most of my attraction to 1950’s and 60’s clothing on my favourite series, Mad Men and my Mom who grew up in the 50’s.
Do you like any particular era of clothing? If so, why?
