There’s a lot of talk going around (everywhere I turn it seems) about how people are no longer dressing up anymore.
I’m a total fence sitter and believe it’s each to their own.
Personally, I love dressing up, and that is my each to my own, and I do it rather avidly.
It’s okay to not feel that way yourself. Everyone should do what makes them happy, and dressing up in vintage makes me happy :) Your happy may be something completely different that isn’t mine! And that’s cool too!
I take any opportunity to dress up, as when I do, I feel my best. I notice I change.
My posture is automatically corrected, my confidence raised, and I feel I could take on the world.
I just recently sorted my wardrobe into two categories: Day wear and evening wear and was shocked to find that both categories were pretty equal in size.
‘But I have soooo many more day wear activities than evening activities.’ (or so I thought) So why did I have so many evening frocks? (or was it too little day frocks hehe)
Then I realised actually I don’t! I have the same amount of nights as I do days, I just usually save the ‘special’ evening dresses for what I rated as extra special nights which is why they never got worn.
Why can’t every night be special?
(The sun was setting and so beautiful as we walked.)
I decided enough was enough, and of late I’ve been using any excuse to wear these evening outfits!
Just the other night, Marianne & I did just that, we went out for a quiet drink and chat, and we dressed up for no one but ourselves!
(How dreamy is Marianne’s 1930′s frock?)
As we were taking our photos, a passer by asked ‘What’s the occasion?’
Marianne replied, “It’s Monday :) ”
I wore a vintage 1950′s bronzey coloured pure silk cocktail dress with a black floral lace overlay.
We had a fantastic night and I can’t wait to dress up more evenings, more often!! Yay!!
Well that’s all from me!
Until my next post
