I've been slowly acquiring a small collection of 1950s vintage dresses. This latest one is the dress that I got for Christmas. I've spoken before about my love of bird prints and so this dress seemed perfect. It even has their scientific names (which for a nerd like me, is adorable!)
And I finally got around to taking a picture of my skirt! I think it's from the 50's because of the metal zip, but then again, someone just could have used a vintage zip in their home sewing (I do it all the time). Either way I love it! The material is the best, a great mixture of brown and black (which I can't do half as well as the lovely Lavender and Yolk) and a splash of orange. A great thrifting start to 2009!
