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.

  1. You look gorgeous and seeing your lovely photo of you with your wonderful little chap smiling yet again has made me smile and warmed my heart this morning. You are both blossoming and I love seeing the photo's. dee xx

  2. Amazing what a simple hem change can do for a dress!

  3. I like those 80s-does-50s dresses - and they are soooo much easier to find, not to mention cheaper, than original 50s frocks. Lovely colours too. And a beautiful smiley baby is the BEST accessory! xxx


I'd love to hear from you!
