2014 Week 3: My Wednesday Style Collective......

I'm a child of the late seventies and grew up through the eights, when it's comes to vintage fashion I'm absolutely and wholeheartedly a fan of the seventies, sixties and even fifties. But on occasion I like to throw in a little eights action for good measure and that's what I've done this week. Nothing says the 1980's in the middle of summer in Australia more than a lightweight crinkle fabric dress, throw in deep pockets and v-cut neckline and you're practically having flashbacks to 1980's summers and warm nights.
Dress - gifted by the sweet Zara
Tooled Leather Belt - op shopped
Wedges - retail

The every so sweet and thoughtful Zara sent me this number in a big parcel of delight a few months ago now, I love the colour of the dress, and it comes with a matching belt but I had to mix it up with a tooled leather belt. Overall it's just such an easy summertime wear that keeps me cool and looks pretty. This seventies loving heart doesn't mind a little eighties action and this lovely dress is a nice addition to my summer wardrobe.

So pretty....I love the length & of course the pockets. Sometimes 80's fashion just has to be relived. Xx

I don't know why people can get so sniffy about the 80s, there were some great dresses, and a lot of them referenced 50s styles anyway. That is a lovely dress, great colour, flattering shape, cool fabric, pockets - what's not to love?! And a gift too, even better. xxxx

That's one 80's fashion that is a winner...doesn't happen very often, lol.

I was a little unsure about sizing when I sent the dresses but they all look amazing on you. x

Exactly Curtise, it's quite a sweetie this one and very wearable.

Didn't we all have some piece of clothing in this fabric? I know I currently have more than one in my wardrobe right now.

I've never seen Mean Girls Sunae so I will have to take your word on it. Perhaps you should visit and we can have a movie day and you can introduce me to the movie of a sweet cup of tea?

Bingo Van, I think the colour is exactly that.
