2013 Week 32: My Wednesday Style Collective....

This is a short, sweet but special style collective post frock that I have been saving to show off, and considering today's my birthday why not share it off today of all days. This dress was gifted to me by a very, very dear friend of mine, who has traveled down somewhat similar difficult journeys as I have regarding pregnancy she is a very dear and special friend.

This dress used to belong to her mother and my sweet friend passed the dress on to me to enjoy and appreciate. She did have one particular request though in giving it to me and that was too see me wear it whilst I was pregnant. She wanted the joy of seeing a pregnant belly in the dress. Thankfully the dress is accommodating and I was able to fulfill her wish and I surprised her by wearing it when she paid us a visit this weekend just passed.

Dress - gifted
Vintage Short Sleeve Cardie - gifted
Bag - op shopped
Leopard Print Ballet Flats - retail

As you can see it a vibrantly red 1970's dress which has been hand printed front and back. It's such and easy wear and a very special frock. I always take such honor in being handed treasures from others families.

I'm incredibly blessed with amazing people in my life.

Happy Birthday sweet Trudie!!! That frock is beautiful! You know red is fast becoming one of my favourite colours, & a frock with birds printed on it is always a winner. I love that bag too. I hope your day is special & filled with blessings despite your current discomfort. Much love to you birthday girl & all the best to you for the coming week. Xx

I know what you mean about the red. It's staying to creep more and more into my wardrobe after years of having a very big issue with red. I always seem to get a load of compliments when I wear red pieces.

Thank you for the gorgeous birthday wishes my sweet friend, looking forward to catch ups after your trip.
