People and flowers are one in the same



Outfit details:
Dress & necklace: 1960s vintage
Shoes: Orla Kiely x Clarks

I just love love love tent dresses, they're my absolute favourite thing to wear! They're just so easy, you can literally just throw one on with a pair of matching flats and you're guaranteed to look girlishly lovely. I know a lot of people are scared of them due to their shapelessness, but you really don't have to have a body like Twiggy to look great in one. I'm as pear shaped as they come and love how these dresses can hide a multitude of sins.

This was one of the very first vintage dresses I ever bought and remains one of my most favourites. I had long admired the '60s aesthetic but was still figuring out which style might suit me when I found this dress in a vintage store. Mia Farrow's style in Rosemary's Baby was what first drew my interest in the fashion of the '60s and I thought this dress looked perfectly Rosemary and so loved it straight away. It's probably the most worn piece in my entire wardrobe.

Lovely Mia

  2. This is a beautiful dress and you look so great. I can understand why you've given it a lot of wearing time! I agree with you - tent dresses are brilliant and can do wonders for shape. But I think I'd have to say my favourite type of dress is an empire waist mini.

  3. that's an adorable dress! i love the gathering at the bust line. My favourite dress shape i think is empire line or what most people call a baby doll dress. The empire line lets you have a wide bottom like the tent dress but you can also include cute ruffles or pleats in the bust! I love your one - great selection!

  4. oh! i love it! nothing shouts summer louder than a fun floral dress. both your's and Mia's are equally lovely. i agree, tent dresses are so easy and fun to wear, and suit so many body types.
    love your hair, you do have a great 60s profile.

    P.S. tagged you for the Sunflower Award, but if you've already gotten it or don't wish to participate, that's fine :)
