Dresses galore

March 01, 2013

My outfit of today. Here I am wearing my most prized possession. A 1940s peplum dress that I bought at the marvelous shop 'Retro & Chic' in Amsterdam. Chic it is, as this is the most expensive dress that I own. But the money was all worth it! The dress has a stunning color of blue. I thought that March 1st could use some color, hence this choice. I love olives ( and I love olive trees the most! They are just so beautiful and I am searching for a dwarf olive tree for quite a while now to keep it indoors. They are stunning. *Click to see how to keep olive trees indoors*) so the olive branches at the peplum and collar are a stunning detail! It's just a dress to die for.

Yesterday I got inspired by my own post on 'How to dress like Ginger Rogers'. Ginger loved dusty pink colors, and so do I. I have an adoration for (water)colors that are 'barely there'. I stumbled upon a 1930w dress, coral colored, with dusty pink sleeves. I thought I died. I wanted it so bad but I have to be careful with my money. But my boyfriend saw that I went completely apeshit and bought the dress for me! I am thoroughly happy!

This is the dress, coming my way if everything goes as it should! I never wanted to see the mail man as badly as now.

I really cannot wait and I have my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong!
