Well I figured I'd try to do a post each Friday about one of my frocks (okay I got the idea from KittysVintageKitsch)...sometimes with me in it but not today. The weather in Brissy today was just how I like it, grey skies, with a cool breeze. It meant I could finally wear one of my thicker poly frocks without perspiring which was a nice change for the start of summer. I love winter, & I really long for those cool & dark days throughout our long, hot summer. This frock is from my favourite local nursing home op shop. It only opens one day each week, & next week is the last day for the year :( I will really miss all the lovely ladies who volunteer at the shop....especially my grade one teacher Mrs N. They all keep their eyes out for vintage treasure for me, & they always laugh at the things I take home.
Anyhoo...back to the frock! Green is my absolute favourite colour, & I love the bright green cotton fabric with little white spots, & the nice panel of stripes at the bottom of the dress. It has lovely thick straps & comes with a tie belt. Just a pity it's one size too small, but I'm keeping this one with the hopes of fitting into it one day! For now I keep it on display in my bedroom.
