Have really been wanting to wear this silk floral eighties dress for a while…today I wore it out to lunch.


With a vintage Michael Morrison studded belt
And these peep-toe Prada booties from spring 2006.
C ya later…Jane

    Beautiful! I love the vibrant colours of this dress, it really makes it stand out.. I’m not really a huge fan of 80’s pieces, but this is one of the rare few that look amazing! There’s always something about floral patterns that are incredibly appealing.
    I like the way you’ve just matched it with some understated boots (although still gorgeous) so that yu really notice the dress.. The belt is very interesting too. The studs just make sure that the whole outfit isn’t too girly. But you didn’t mention what make is the bag in the first 2 shots? Its a nice colour.
    As a blogger who’s only started up recently, I wouldreallyappreciate a few tips and ideas on how to get your blog known and noticed. I’msure quite a few of us out there would really appreciate it!

    It’s funny I’ve been seeing a lot of 80s colours: primary, bold, and a blue that we haven’t seen around in a while:
    & esp. mixing bright colours with brown heeled boots:
