I have to say that this dress is an instant favorite of mine! It is so comfortable on and I love the fabric, the color and the cut. And, as it is custom made, it fits me down to a t. I think it will be my favorite 'everyday' dress for all of the reasons above. Plus, it is a versatile number as it can be worn during all of the seasons or dressed up for a fancy occasion.
I spent last weekend in Lahti and visited a new vintage store called Autiotalo. I was pleasantly surprised by the shop! It is one of the larger vintage stores I've seen in Finland that isn't super expensive either and carried plenty of goodies that had me drooling, much, much more than what is listed on the website. I settled on this pair of 1940s shoes (pictured) that are super cute and only cost 15€! There was another similar pair with bows but they were a tiny bit smaller. I paired them with one of my favorite handbags, a real gem that I found at a local flea market last fall. Would anyone be able to guess its age? The price tag said it is from 1960s but I'm not quite so sure.
I've mainly been doing cold curl sets as of late but ended up with a hot roller set today - which reminded me of what pain they are! I mean, the actual curls - that remind me more of 1960s than 1940s looks - last perhaps half an hour and then you're left with this... Ugh! I ended up with good ol' victory rolls and a snood to cover the hair mess. Much better!
