Perfect Dresses #1

Perfect Dresses #1
IMG_9255-3.png

hey, here's something i haven't done in a while, an outfit post! i'm not trying to brag when i say i have so many clothes i literally can't fit them all in my overflowing wardrobe (and the wardrobe in my brother's old room, and several drawers...) but i know 90% of the people who read my blog are interested in pretty clothes, so i thought i'd share some of mine.

a couple of years ago i decided that from then on i was only going to buy perfect dresses. i was so sick of those horrible i-have-nothing-to-wear-i-hate-everything days and looking at half of my clothes thinking "i can do better." so i got rid of those cheap dresses i never wore and have been investing in perfect ones ever since. i feel like skirts and tops are less of an issue because you can always re-invent them and pair them with different things, but when you wear a dress, that's the whole outfit. it's so worth paying a little extra because now when i'm having one of those days or if i'm in a rush in the morning i can just put on a perfect dress and i know i'll feel great.

this particular dress is vintage and it came to me at the lady luck festival in the blue mountains last december. sometimes when you see a dress you just know it was meant for you before you even try it on. and i love finding perfectly sized vintage because it means it once belonged to another girl or woman the exact same shape as you. please excuse the unusually booby nature of this dress, i don't own many clothes with such a low neckline, but sometimes a girl just has to! the letterman jacket i'm wearing is also vintage, found at the retrostar warehouse sale in melbourne when i was down there in february. also you can't tell from the pictures but the polka dots are actually velvet and the belt buckle is made of faux diamonds, perfect!
