SPECIAL Style Collective: Not to be missed weekend Style Post.....

I have been holding on for a chance to show off my first ever genuine 1950's dress, that I bought last year the day that Celia and I worked together on the vintage styling event. I know every day should be a special day donning some vintage. But because this is such a sweet dress that I'm smitten with and because this is a late and special addition style post I thought I'd save it for a special post.

She's a beauty this dress and the great thing about many dresses of the 1950's is they look utterly divine styled to the nines with all accompanying vintage finery. But they also lend themselves to sweet modern styling and accessorising too.


One of the things I love the most about this dress is the skirt, that full skirt, the fit the way it falls. It makes me feel all lady and does the most splendid job of fitting me and hiding all manner of things, but there is one thing I can't hide much longer.


Front on style pics are just not going to do anymore, I've been keeping secrets. Ben and I are expecting another sweet addition to the brood in August. Pretty much smack bang around my 35th birthday. Oh and before you ask, yes I did tell a little fib in my style post this week, about putting weight on. It is still very true I struggle with putting weight on, but the reasons why things are a little different at the moment are now obvious as you see. I'm sure you'll forgive the white lie won't you?

It is an incredibly big leap (a leap of faith) to be doing any sort of announcement post especially rolled into a style post, if you are aware of my significant pregnancy history and loss. But I shan't speak anymore about that just now, I'll save it for another type of post very soon.

For now it's a time for me and my wee little family to be hopeful, happy and positive and share this exciting news with you all. It's a big brave step for me and in my healing process in the last five years to be at a point of comfort and optimism to be opening myself to sharing this all with you and as candidly as I will.

Thank you my precious. The dress is divine and fits me splendidly when I'm not pregnant too, it's all in that full skirt that does the wonderful job for my wee bump. Don't worry style posts aren't going anywhere, sure I might have to get innovative but there here to stay and have some fun with. X
