OWN IT

Hey lovers

Most vintage dresses come from an era where clothes were tailored rather than mass produced.  Hence the unique sizing in each individual garment. On that note,  it also varies from decade to decade. Confused yet?! My tip is to not look at the sizing and just try it on. Then once you’ve tried it on, don’t be afraid to own it.

Having had a baby recently, my body now carries curves that I’ve embraced with open arms. I don’t give a shit that I’m weightier, feel absolutely no rush to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and try to not let people get me down. After all I did just pop out a human being. My friends have commented on how great I look (thank you) and I believe that has to do with my confidence and dressing for my figure.  With this new body, I now also have the opportunity to strut in vintage outfits that would have otherwise been to large me a year ago. Score!

Hope you love the look.

COVERED IN FLORAL

Hey lovers

Vintage dresses are far from being frumpy. In fact, when styled right, you can turn the granniest looking vintage piece into something that’s both stylish and unique. Aside from the great quality, the best part is that most vintage dresses from the 70’s and 80’s era also come with pockets.

When shopping for vintage, you really can’t judge a piece on the racks. In fact you need to either try it on or be able to imagine it with accessories, other wardrobe items and the perfect pair of shoes.

I wanted to give you a little inspiration so have decided to style a Laura Ashley piece from my Mode Madison collection. Although created specifically for a wedding guest look, the result of the photographs from this shoot reminded me of Frida Kahlo. All I’m missing are the eyebrows.

The ‘covered in floral’ vintage dress is one of a kind and available for puchase on http://www.modemadison.com for $49.00 AUD plus shipping.

Thanks for reading and I hope you love this look I’ve created. xx
