But listen to the colour of your dreams

1960s vintage clothing

I recently acquired this beautiful dress, and it absolutely required me to get dressed up in my dolly best to show it to you! I've also been feeling a little blue lately and getting dressed up never fails to make me feel better.

The sleeves were what sold it to me. I love that the embroidery is carried over onto the cuffs.

Spring is nearly here and daffodils are in full bloom, another reason to be happy! I love how well they match my 70s vase.

    I've never seen a dress like that in my life. Cheers for such an awesome find.
    Hope you get to feeling better. Dressing up helps me, too

  3. You look just beautiful, and what a dress! Complete 1960's perfection. It looks like it is in such great condition too. Brilliant eye make-up as well, it suits you very nicely. I hope that you have been feeling better!

  4. Lovely dress! Where do you get all your vintage finds from? I only ever find good vintage clothes in very expensive shops, like £150 for a dress and that's way out of my budget.
    Completely get what you mean about getting dressed up to make you feel better. If im feeling crappy and im in my pyjamas with my hair scraped back, It makes me feel even worse.
    and I've been picking up daffodils alot recently as well, they are so cheap and pretty! :)
