Always the bridesmaid


 Never the bride, purchased this gorgeous vintage bridesmaid dress on eBay about a month ago and wore it on Monday. Mostly went to the supermarket, I am rock n roll. But just had to wear it, it was only £17, the material is gorgeous and the peach lining underneath makes me giddy. Do you have ridiculous clothes that you wear food shopping? or do you have places to go unlike me hah 

















 Have a wonderful weekend

  2. ooh that dress is so beautiful, such lovely colours. Are the flowers flocked on it? Some days ( like today) the supermarket is the only place I go so yes. :) Hehe I like to look nice for work but cant always wear my lovely vintage dresses as they get ruined when i'm up and down ladders and lugging heavy mannequins everywhere. xx

    1. Thank you, yes they are. Yeah I don't wear much of my vintage to work, not that I do any heavy lifting besides snacks from my drawer aha. Wish I could wear what I wanted all the time though! xxx

  3. Gorgeous dress!! It has a sort of 18th century vibe; so magical. And if that's just the bridesmaid's dress, I'd have liked to have seen the bride's gown, haha! Bet it was awesome.

  12. It's beautiful! I really like the scalloped neckline and the print. My sisters and I always used to dress up to go to the drugstore, but possibly never quite to the extent of wearing a bridemaid dress. :D
