A 'Special Occasion' Outift Post

We had a the Mister's niece's Christening to attend a few Saturday's ago, and I finally got to bust out one of my favourite a-little-too-nice-to-wear-on-a-normal-occasion dresses and matching bolero.

Sadly the little shop I purchased it from no longer exists, and I found this on my first and only trip...the little old lady was gone the following weekend! But many long-time vintage lovers in Brighton have informed me that it was Brighton's best kept vintage secret, the tiny shop up on Upper St James St in Kemptown where apparently Kate Moss used to get most of her bits from.

Anyways, I've had this dress since my 21st Birthday, which was um....nearly 3 years ago now, and have only worn this on 3 occasions, my 21st Birthday, my friend's 30th as seen here with me sporting my oh so sexy wrist braces, and for the christening! It even proved to be dog-proof too...pretty and practical? Score!

Me flashing some bling-bling for a change:

And a hat with a GIGANTIC flower set off to one side:

Now to organise some more special occasions as an excuse to get the others out of their plastic covers! I may just decided to go back to what they used to, and wear my best on Sunday's every week, special occasion or not! Anyone care to join me? Liberate those rarely worn lovelies!

  2. Gorgeous outfit! And I'll totally join you with Sunday best dressing - I almost do that already anyway, as my more exciting dresses tend to come out on the weekend, while the rest of the world seems to be dressing down! We should absolutely resurrect the Sunday best principle.

  3. Thank you ladies :) I am making sure I'm wearing my Sunday best this weekend! Especially as it's my dad's birthday lunch! Lets resurrect our Sunday best's! Let me know if you post anything up on your blogs, I'd love to see please!



I love your comments, they make my day :) I'll answer any questions just as soon as I can!
