[outfit post] A sixties shift dress
|Good lord, an actual outfit post!|
I bought this dress, by Daroma, from Baboushka last time Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair was in Bath. I went to the fair to say Hi to Vix, and bought a great shirt dress from Kinky Melon, then had a good browse round the other stalls. I loved the print on this one as soon as I saw it. It's big and bold without being gaudy. I also like the way it gets larger towards the bottom of the dress.
I hadn't worn the dress to work before today. It seemed somehow a bit too attention-grabbing. (Yeah, I know. I have managed to convince myself that turning up dressed like an extra from Foyle's War is perfectly unobtrusive, but wearing a 1960s summer dress will make people stare.) However, today was going to be hot and most of my usual dresses are waiting to be ironed, so out this one came. Some people did give me the side-eye as I walked into work, but I keep telling myself that perhaps they were thinking, “I wish I had the guts to wear what I like” rather than, “Why is she dressed like a background from Yellow Submarine?”
