customized vintage dress // gillet and pumps Primark // sunglasses* Firmoo // watch Urban Outfitters (similar here)

I have to admit that the weekend just gone, I was being an antisocial bear and pretty much locked myself in  my room with the exception of taking Harvey out for a long walk on Sunday. It wasn't sunny in the town where I live, so I guess that put a little downer on the weekend, but on the upside I had a Supernatural marathon (yaaayy!) and got lots of blog posts done as my "To Review" box was getting pretty full up.

I got this dress from my mama, it's really old and I can remember her wearing it 14 years ago, and when she asked me if I wanted it - I jumped at the chance. I made some changes to it: took out the shoulder pads and put a black ribbon through the front in place of a white cord which was there and I guess just brought it a little up to date. Now it's one of my favourite pieces and I don't see myself getting rid of it for a very long time. Maybe even wait until I have a daughter and give it to her. Awwwwh, it's like a family heirloom.

I'm wearing it today to celebrate the sun FINALLY hitting this town with some circle frame sunglasses and a quilted gillet for a casual look. And I'm quite impressed with the near mess that my hair turned out to be - I straightened it and then for some weird reason I started curling it with my straighteners, and did half/half. But it turned out pretty cute! Accidents are sometimes the best.
