going back in time, pt. 6



Dress - Vintage






I remember really liking the first photo when I took it, and I still do. As I still really like this dress. The only thing different is possibly my hair. I can't braid it to be a long tail, but it's grown enough for me to do a front French braid! When I first cut it I couldn't do that as there were always wee bits annoyingly sticking out, and I've been far too excited to be able to braid my hair again. Also at first, I was in a way cautious of wearing vintage dresses with my short hair. But it turns out it looks just fine, don't you think? At least this one doesn't really need the long hair (or the awkward) pose of the original photo!

Lovely colour and I love all he pleating. Very, very pretty! I think this dress looks pretty with your shorter hair, you can see the cute sleeves and all the pleating better.
