Pick A Pocket In Blue

Another vintage number for you guys and this one is utterly lovely. I've found a new haunt to shop for vintage goodies and best of all, they're all so cheap! It's so hard nowadays to find genuine vintage items for prices of old so I was super happy when I found this dress. I always try to find the origins of a vintage item but it was difficult with this one, late 80s was the closest I could get. It's also a good indication with elastic as that didn't really come to the forefront of dress fashion until 70s/80s, so I'm pretty confident with that date. 
Dress: Vintage
Tights: Boots
Shoes: Simply Be
I absolutely adore the blue. Royal blue is my favourite colour and this is a little darker with more sheen. Blue really is becoming quite prominent in my wardrobe and I'm always surprised at how well it goes against my skin tone. The features of the dress are great too. The buttons are awesomely bulky, the flowers are made of rich colours, and as ever, I was thrilled to find another vintage dress with an elasticated waist. The gem of all gems though are the pockets! What I wouldn't give to have more pockets on dresses. The print and length makes this dress great for this time of year and I can't wait to ditch my tights for a bare-legged, sunshine spring look with sandals and shades.....speaking of sandals, head to Primark if you're looking for fab, cheap sandals. I bought a few pairs a couple of days ago during my lunch break and I aim to buy a few more come payday! 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
