The polka dot vintage midiTuesday, September 09, 2014
In a swift departure from yesterday's style I bring you one one of my latest bargain finds which I'm so in love with. This vintage dress was waiting to be rescued from a local charity shop labelled up at somewhere between £1-3 (my memory fails me), but you can see why I've had a couple of large chazza hauls lately – how can I say no with prices from £1 for things I can't resist?
On this occasion I arrived home to try on everything (I never try on behind weirdy curtains) and loved the fit but discovered a small stain that although wasn't that obvious, was a deal breaker. Being loathed to take it back (and dreading seeing someone else walking around in it) we tried soaking it in stain remover which worked and it's pristine again, hurrah! It's good stuff that Vanish Gold.
Not sponsored to say that – I'm just well chuffed!
The dress is delightfully modest: capped sleeves, high neckline, midi length, loose fit with a nipped in at the waist with a matching belt. The white polka dots make it perfect for wearing with my white faux Litas which although perhaps have been long forgotten by the fashion world are still a style I'll reach for time and time again. A stinking great heeled boot is always a winner for me.
I'm thinking wedged trainers next time?
Much more of a ladylike outfit today, but who knows what tomorrow brings?
