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,

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
