In hope of a light to pull the weeds out from the flower

Dress:vintage,black clover
Basket bag:vintage
Rings/ribbon bow:gifts
T-strap heels:Clarks
Lip color:MAC's hug me



I feel so ladylike today with this dress. Its weird for me sometimes to wear too girly,just feel funny at times. Don't get me wrong though,I love to wear dresses for sure.
This vintage dress I bought a few years back for a wedding dinner back then that I had attended. It simply a treasure to me because its vintage. Everything or anything vintage to me is extra precious. You will hardly be able or never find someone wearing something exact to yours.

It is a dream of mine(one of my many dreams) to open a vintage store. An actual store that stocks up vintage clothes to shoes and bags. With a small cafe at the side too,how splendid. Am I dreaming too much? Well,you'll never know.

Oh yes,do keep those questions coming in too! I will be answering all of your Q&A through an upcoming vlog. Will be so much fun,so start typing away. Ask me anything you want,fashion/non fashion related.

love love this outfit! it all goes so well!

I've always wanted to open a little boutique that sells vintage, handmade, rare items as well as wedding dresses and fancy dress (more couture fancy dress i.e. flapper girls than slutty trash ;) )

Faridah said...

This outfit is a dream. You look so beautiful!!! I love ladylike dressing every now and then. It changes things up for a bit. I too treat every vintage piece I own like it's treasure. It's so precious to own something with so much history, love and mystery.

Sher said...

What a darling, girlie dress! You look so sweet especially with that little bow in your hair and the trinkets on your fingers!

And the little picnic box is just so delightful, dearie!

Don't give up on your dream, it's a lovely one and may just come true one day:)

i think having my own vintage store is also one of my aspiration too - for vintage lovers, it would be heaven to have their own big massive closet... i wish you'll really have the store someday, along with me having mine too, so we can be partners! :P

this is probably toi late, but Happy New Year! I'm wishing you everything you wished for becoming true... Stay who you are, you pretty self :))

Love you sooo!

You're not dreaming too much. Is a great idea, and as you said that there are not too much stores in your city, you'll have succes with that.

What a cute outfit!! Gotta love that vintage basket :) so adorable!

denise said...

haha that picnic basket is so awesome. i love that you can dress cutesy and girly but then shake it up and dress pretty edgy and cooool.

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Wow, I so love this outfit. It kind of reminds me of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz - the blue colour, the red shoes? Hmm? I love your outfit, though. The pale colours are actually really refreshing - I'm becoming slowly attracted to such colours!

And I always think that starting a vintage shop would be so much fun. A quaint shop with classy, fashionable people (like yourself!) as clients. *siiighhh* I say: It's okay to dream!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
