circa 1935








I bought this dress last year, its an old wedding dress I do believe, from around mid 30s, but someone has more recently shortened it, with a longer length at the back. Its Silk Crepe I think.
You can really see where the fashions in 1970s came from, flares and platform shoes were also invented in the 1930s.

It was bloody cold when I took these pics in the snow, as you can probably tell!

I plan to add this dress to my vintage shop when I next update it.

*please excuse that I couldn't do up all the buttons on the back by myself
*fake fur jacket is circa 1970s.

  14. I absolutely love your blog to the bits. All i dream about is to buy caravan and start seeing new places. Our first destination is England as we wants to visit my daughter's god mother who lives in UK, i used to live there for 4 yrs as well. You inspired me to see new places, you can see them with little money. Can wait when your baby grows and you can starts travelling again. Your blog is fantastic,as well as jewellery you make. I have a blog about my little flat, my lovely daughter and all the other stuff. Wish you all the best/ Sorry for my English, it gets worst as it was almost 4 yrs since i left Britain. Can wait for another post. Love. Gosha nad her little daughter Zosia (Sophie)

    Gorgeous blog - such a treat to land here! Your daughter is a cherub and what a wonderful name you've given her. Lucky gal! I love all the children's books by the Ahlbergs (Jolly Postman! esp) but my kids enjoyed, Each Peach Pear Plum, on an almost daily basis for a time. Enjoy parenthood.
