So, yesterday, I proclaimed that I wasn't feeling up to outfit photos, and while it's true I haven't been putting much effort in lately, my mum dragged me out to see the amazing butterfly house at Wisley RHS Gardens today. Since it was beautifully, tropically warm inside, and I had my camera to take photos of the lovely butterflies; I thought I'd get her to snap me, so I could show you what a 'Vintage Girl' wears when she's not planning an outfit post! It's not all seamed stockings and perfectly set hair after all, but I do try to make myself look nice, not to mention vintage, wherever I go. The problem is, I dislike winter. I've said it here before, but I really do. I generally avoid dark colours - I always dress up black, brown and navy with bright shades, just like they did in the 40s. And I have to say, Heyday trousers are my lifeline, when the last things I feel like struggling with are seamed stockings and slips. Roll on bare-legged spring!
Moss Green. Sadly, these were in Shona's recent sale, and there's only one pair left. Whoever's a lucky size 14, go grab them now! The outfit is completed with my old faithful co-respondent shoes, my new celluloid bangle and a matching pale yellow hair flower.
And some butterflies for good measure... they were all simply stunning, especially the tiny transparent one above! I can't wait to go back in a few weeks to see the as-yet-unhatched varieties, not to mention the spring flowers. Yay nature!
Hope you all have thoroughly top-hole weekends.
All the best,
