There has been some delay between when these pictures were taken and when they have been posted, that is, now. It was still Autumn then, it is harsh winter now. On this day I received a parcel delivery from Bess Georgette, which is a vintage Etsy store run by a lovely lady named Teresa. She stocks a carefully curated selection of vintage pieces, all pristine and perfect and promptly delivered. As it so happened I was already wearing a dress I had bought from her before, when the parcel arrived with two more. I can stop any time I want, I swear.
The dress I’m wearing is my favourite 50s cotton day dress. It fits like a glove, not too tight, not too loose. I do like wearing green. The dresses I am holding, above, are another 50s cotton day dress, this time with a beautiful bright orange floral pattern, and a 60s mod shift. I want to return to wearing the 60s silhouette more often, a change. I think I will need to take this one up, because the proportions are all off for someone as short as me. I look a bit frumpy. Oh to be taller, to look like Megan Draper in a mini. I’m fairly certain that if I were taller it would solve most of my problems.
