My new vintage dress


By C.Elizabeth




Last week I received a package... It was my lovely new vintage dress which I bought on Ebay. I simply couldn't wait to receive it and put it on! Typically, the weather wasn't nice enough for me to wear it right away so I had to wait almost a week before being able to show it off! This dress is originally from Miami, Florida so it feels like it brought of bit of my beloved North America... a bit of my home.




Dress vintage, Bow Claire's, Sandals Aldo, Sunglasses M&S


Something else very exciting will happen in five days. My good friend Ariella from Pearls In Your Hair will be visiting me for just under a week. I'm really looking forward to this because it has been two years since we last saw each other. We then went to Dublin, which was really great so I'm expecting to have just as much fun this time around!
