my friend's mum's dress

One day, one of my colleagues was wearing an amazing dress
and I told her as such. A few days later she bought it in for me
as a gift, as she felt it didn't suit her. I re-elasticised the waist and
ta-dah! I believe her mum made this dress in the 1950s. Isn't it fab?

Shoes - Sportsgirl (on sale $29.95)
Tights - really old
Top underneath dress - Big W ($7.86)
Belt - Portmans


  1. Wow. That was such a lovely gesture. And it looks great with those shoes and tights. They're an exact match!

  2. Oh wow. That's such a treasure! I found a handpainted dress done in the 50s once, and it's my most favourite piece of clothing.
