VINTAGE DRESS & PINK SHOES

VINTAGE DRESS & PINK SHOES

Nancy in a vintage dress!

Yes yes, I have a vintage dress! Actually, last week I wanted to write a post about the fact that I had bought vintage clothing (yes I did), but then I had just got back from England and I thought our holiday also deserved a place on the blog. If you have not read about our holiday in England, you can do so here. But the other post will arrive soon, but this is also a vintage dress. Yes, I am suddenly on the move. And I will tell you what is so funny. As many of you know, before I started blogging, I almost only wore black.

So when I was still working, in a trendy ladies fashion shop, where we sold great colorful clothes, I almost only wore black at the time. So the beautiful feminine bright skirts and dresses have passed me by. But now that I am over my phobia, fear, give it a name, for second-hand clothing, and you can also search online by brand, I’ll see those dresses from then again! From the shop where I used to work! Ha, how nice is that! All those dresses that I found beautiful but did not buy because they were not black, they gradually enter my wardrobe through the courier. Like this one, a bit to short for me( in summer) but I liked the color combination.

How I styled this vintage dress

I did not know which cardigan I liked the most, so I’ll show them both. This is the other pair of shoes that I picked out from Footway. The other couple that I could choose, I had already shown you last week. These are from the brand Duffy and wear very nice. And the color is very light pink, a bit nude, and I did not have nude shoes yet.( yeah, I know it’s hard to believe) They look good on everything! And then the bracelet. That is from a collaboration with Kaya sieraden. Kaya Sieraden sends a part of their money to charity. They donate a portion to Gambia for every piece of jewelry sold. At the moment, 16 children are already going to school because of their donations. You can read about their project here. Isn’t that just fabulous! The bracelet has my name and a birthstone.What am I spoiled again!vintage dressvintage dressvintage dressvintage dressvintage dressvintage dressvintage dressvintage dress

    It’s amazing how the different cardigans make that same dress look so different, Nancy!!
    And yay for color!! It’s nice to get over that road block, and hopefully other women will too!!

    EIther cardigan looks amazing, Nancy! But as I am partial to yellow, I pick that one. Or the pink…In either case, I am in love with that vintage dress! And so glad you no longer just wear black!

    What a beautiful dress. It really suits you. It’s so difficult to get out of the black zone, but it’s so great when you do 🙂 I love colour now

    This is such an amazing outfit Nancy and you wear it so well. Love the shoes with it. Black really suits you but please treat us to some more of those colorful outfits as well because we are totally missing out on those different sides of you <3 Have a lovely day. Sabina

    You look absolutely stunning in that outfit. The dress is lovely and so is the little yellow card – but the other one is great as well – both are good! You look so nice.

    Hi Nancy, I prefer the yellow cardigan by far. It gives the outfit more power. Love, Lieske

    Fun to see how changing the color of your cardi completely changes the look of your great vintage dress. It is a beautiful piece and fits you like a glove!!

    Nancy, I love that you got over your fear of thrift shopping! And what a pretty dress. I love both cardigans and the yellow makes me smile, but I do think I like the softer shade of pink with it better. This post will be featured on my Link Up post tomorrow!
