I am a 40s, 50s vintage girl at heart, with an occasional bit of the 60s thrown in for variation. The 80s don't even get a look in. Until now!
I saw this little number and it reminded me of ric rac trimmed patio dresses of the 50s. The reality was a bit more polyester than I would have liked, but the overall feel was just what I wanted.
Although not technically ric rac trimmed, the ribbon and lace detail is super cute!
And I love any outfit that I can wear a hat with!
I don't have anything off the shoulder in my wardrobe, it's just perfect for sunny days!

It may not have been a wise move to buy an unlined polyester summer dress, but it was so pretty!
It is also made out of a see through lining fabric, which is only obvious in the sunlight outside. And when I say see through, boy do I mean it!
I realised in good time though so I ran back inside and slipped on a white linen pencil skirt underneath because I don't have any half slips! (Note to self- buy nude half slip!)
It was a lot of fun taking these pictures! I think the more playful an outfit is, the more playful you are for the pictures!
