A Vintage Spring....

Wasn't yesterday gorgeous in London? a whopping 22 degrees - and same again today - woohoo! such a change from the last two days of rain and grey skies.  I ventured to my favourite spot in Soho again for lunch to soak up the sunshine, of course the rest of Soho was also there, but it is such a pretty spot - a little Church yard just on Wardour Street - anyone know it?


OK, so here it is ladies and gents, the first vintage dress that fits!  Now I do love vintage, but I always have problems finding dresses and shoes that fit because of my shape, height and rather wide foot!  But I've done it, I've found a dress that fits and suits me, its so pretty and Summery, the material is light and chiffon-y so super comfy and perfect for the Summer months which are fast approaching - what do you think?  

I found it in a little Vintager shop in Oxford called Very Vintage when we went down for Mothers Day.

Cardigan - H&M, Dress - Vintage, Belt - Vintage/Portobello Market, Tights - Primark, Shoes - New Look

This snake belt is another one of my vintage finds in Portobello Market, I love the way it does up - you basically hook the head into one of the knots and pull the tail through the other end.  I love it because its so unique!


I took loads of pics as I love this dress so much - technically it wasn't a 'purchase' as my Daddy-o decided to get it for me :)  I tried to do a twirl to show of the beautiful flowing material, though it didn't quite work - turns out it was a pretty hard to capture - here is one from about 7 shots - oh dear!



Is everyone else enjoying the sunshine in London? Glorious I say! :)

So nice to enjoy the weather! I am ready to put my feet in cool grass and have yummy picnics!!

And that dress is an amazing find! It really looks great with your skin and hair, and I love the belt you styled it with!! These photos are great, you look lovely!

On my blog you asked where I got my clogs -- I got them from ebay but they are from Topshop! And since you're a London lady, maybe you could find some there! <33 take care and have more fun, thrifting adventures!
