Outfit

When it comes to fashion, it is probably obvious from my blog, that my favourite items are pretty dresses and mary-jane heels. I am truly obsessed with them and I simply cannot resist an item of this description, often spending way too much money. A beautiful dress or pair of heels can instantly make me feel happy. On Saturday I experienced this when I finally decided to buy this 1950s inspired mint lace dress from Portmans. I've had my eye on it for a few weeks now. It is probably the most expensive dress I've ever bought myself. I'm very impressed with the dresses in Portmans this season. The store has a number of unique vintage inspired pieces which I adore. The other one I have I displayed
here. I wore my new mint lace dress to a baby shower on Sunday. I received many compliments on it. A few people even asked me if it was real vintage which, in my opinion, is the ultimate compliment. I think I may have a new favourite dress!
