80's does 50's Frock Friday

I bought this dress sometime last year at Salvos for $6. It was mid-calf length and I wasn't sure if I'd ever wear it, but I thought if I shortened it and created a belt with the off-cuts I might be more likely to wear it. It's a button front so it's handy for feeding. I quite like it now. Occasionally those dresses from the 80's hit the mark.

Boom Shankar Frock Friday

I very rarely go out wearing something that's not vintage, it feels kind of odd if I do. But there are some brands that I don't mind, like Dangerfield and Boom Shankar. I bought this dress from the Boom Shankar website. It's made from a stretch fabric and it's really comfortable. It's different from my usual vintage style but I kind of like it.
