A TRUE LADY WEARS VINTAGE

Will i be tickling your female ego if i tried to tell you how to wear a dress? Yeah? I figured. Because really, some things are just not learned but come naturally. A girl is born and immediately a dress is put on her but with time she gets to either hate it or learn to appreciate it and decides to wear it with pride.

Maybe i was a closet vintage dress lover but believe it or not, as a teenager, i passed through that phase where in my mind, wearing dresses was just not cool enough. Whaaaaaat? Oh yeah, maybe you once felt the same way about something, only to love it later like no other. I am absolutely smitten by dresses but with much love for vintage dresses like this lovely Sandy Gray dress i have on. There is that element of class and a lady-like satisfaction i get from it. There is also always that need to carry myself with poise and i love it. I learned with time that i don't have to be rich to be a true lady.

Do you like to wear your vintage, drink it.... or both? Nothing wrong with that ;).

I know what you mean, Bu :) Lately I've been discovering more and more some vintage pieces - from my retro wardrobe, from my mum's and even my grandma's. Not everything fits me, but I'm learning how to style up and appreciate garments which I didn't like before.
Your dress looks stunning - it's so vibrant and feminine!
