It wasn’t until I was selecting which photos to use for this post that I realised how much this dress reminds me of pinup girls in the 1940s. I bought this beauty two weekends ago at a local vintage fair, and I couldn’t resist since it combined two of my favourite things in the entire universe: paisley print and a thrifty price tag. Despite it being four sizes too large for me, it’s nothing a belt can’t fix by cinching me in at the waist. Ah, the powers of accessories! I think this dress will look perfect when the weather here in England improves, when I’ll most likely wear it with black thigh-high socks, a topknot and a pair of retro oversized sunglasses. I’ve been yearning for a holiday and a bit of sunshine as of recently, but alas I cannot go on my travels until my dreaded exams have ceased. Is it too much to ask for even a tiny bit of heat? Of course, living in England the answer would be a solid no.
I hadn’t done any baking in a while, so I felt a spot of it was in order today. Like the old women we so secretly are my sister and I decided to bake cookies. Besides our brief culinary escapade I haven’t done anything of interest today, unless you could count watching back-to-back episodes of Adventure Time or attending my weekly ice skating lesson.
Hugs and kisses, Sarah xo
