I’ve had one of those lovely weekends where I spend lots of time with the people I love. Last night was my dear friend Nikki’s 23rd birthday, and then today I went to go and see her baptised! It was a pretty special thing to go to… and even as someone who counts themselves as pretty un-religious it was certainly a moving experience.
Two lovely occasions gives me an opportunity to share two outfits!
The dress I am wearing is by Martin Grant, I bought it second hand a few years back at around 10% it’s original retail value. I have to say I was pretty shocked when I looked up online how expensive his dresses were new, but this dress is beautifully cut and made. The detailing at the waistline is particularly spectacular.
I’m wearing it here with some ancient Faith platforms ( I bought these when I was in sixth form!!) and a pair of vintage earrings.
I will admit the dress is a little bit too tight for me, so by the end of the night I did feel like the circulation to my hips was being cut off.
Today I wore one of my favourite vintage 70s suits (the skirt has a 22in waist- oh the pain). I teamed it with a little mint green 70s shirt that is by Bus Stop. It has THE best buttons.
I love the little hat I wore too, I think it is probably a 40s one- mixing up particularly unmatching colours (mint green and deep red????) as ever!
