Pinup






Dress: vintage
Cardigan: vintage
Bag: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Office

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, of which I've included a photo to tantalise your taste buds. Did somebody say food porn? 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

  4. Your hair is SO DAYUMMM PERFECT! That dress is also so '40s, but with a '60s vibe due to the paisley? You look so absolutely FABULOUS, and I can't wait to see what else you come up with with this dress!
