This dress is possibly one of my favorite vintage pieces handed down from my Gran, to my Mum, and now to me – it has so much history – and thats really what I love about vintage fashion. The story. This dress has hundreds of stories I am certain, but one that I will share with you, is that this dress is my Papa’s favorite. He loved it on my Gran, loved it on my mum, and recently told me that he loved it on me, and that just makes my heart melt.

This dress is really odd, it is pure velvet heaven and the hem is pleated. Under the bust it is rouched to the left side, and the pattern of pinks, reds, and maroons alone should be enough to tell you that there is a lot going on here – yet it is all seems works so perfectly harmoniously together. With this dress I am not wearing any gems or jewels, the dress is its own statement piece. However the lipstick that everyone keeps asking me about is MAC Cosmetics – Film Noir.
