A new vintage dress




Vintage 70's pale pink lace angel sleeved dress

I have a few things to blog but I've managed to lose my camera in the house somewhere so I thought I'd show you a dress instead.  I spotted this on Ebay and fell in love with it.  The Actor kindly bought it for me as I'm still on an economy drive.  It's not sensible or practical but who cares?  That's normally a consideration.  It was £38 from a seller in America so it'll take a while to arrive.


I love the sleeves


I'll get some pictures of me wearing it when it turns up


I'm hoping I'll get away with it.  I'll definitely need to buy some nude underwear.  I've never bought any before as it's always such an oddly unattractive colour.

I'm slowly catching up on my blog reading.  I hope everyone's enjoying the sun.  Fingers crossed it stays xxx

Dear Christina,
'Indie Cult Vintage' has got to be one of my fave shops on eBay, I frequesntly pop over and ogle at their auctions. The yanks really have the upper hand when it comes to this eBay selling malakey, they make everything look so amazing & cool. Well done for bagging that stunning garment, I'm certain you will carry it off with utmost panache.
Hope all is well with you.
Lot's of love,
Jennie

You are going to look amazing in that dress!

Ms. Moon said...

It reminds me of something Anita Pallenberg would have worn. And you will look gorgeous in it!

Oh I was about to say Anita Pallenberg too but Ms Moon beat me to it, it's beautiful.
I'm very boring I almost always wear nude underwear - and it is ugly - if i wa still single I'd be making more of an effort!

MyStyle said...

Hi my dear-the dress is a gorgeous buy, can't wait to see it on too!! Hope you're having as good summer too!! xxx

Wildernesschic said...

It is absolutely stunning and will look great on you.. I think there are two ways to go here.. you could get a really plain chemise.. ( DVF had a lace dress a few seasons ago and it made it sit better) or nude underwear form M&S T shirt range is ok.. xx

Vix said...

Dear Christina, I thought that was you modelling that dress, it's beautiful and so you.
Flesh coloured underwear is the most appaling granny underwear ever, I hate wearing it but it's way better than looking like a dodgy prozzie.
Hope to catch up really soon. Love you! x

Dusk said...

I too thought that was you! But damn I can't wait to see you in this!! (but I guess I'll have tyo!) Divine!

Lilian Harlow said...

What a gorgeous dress! I've no doubt that it will look even more incredible when it's worn and styled by you :)

Kitty said...

Oooh, noice! as Australians say! Make sure you show yourself in it when it arrives.xx.

Alex said...

Oh Christina it's gorgeous! I thought the model was you - that first photo bears a spooky resemblence!

Could you pop a nude slip under it? I'm sure you'll have one somewhere in your wardrobe and it means you won't have to spend money on boring undies.

Smashingbird said...

Wow it's gorgeous & you'll surely look fab in it! I'm terribly behind on blog reading too... xx

OMG, I love this dress, C. It will look splendid on you & you must take some pics for us to see. Yes, the underwear is key, isn't it. Maybe a nice bodysuit? Sending love (your term) to both of you, precious friend. xx's

Indiecult, meat market, thrift wears, american archive, and tin roof vintage are very unfair with the prices. I know this because, they have me shill bid (Increase Price) on their items. Etsy.com truly supports artists and vintage items. eBay has made everyone greedy and unfair!

La Dama said...

Oh gosh!I thought that was you modeling the dress. that model looks so much like you amor. lovely dress, Actor has good taste and naughty see through dress.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

The Actor is a good guy. The dress is lovely. You'll look great in it.

Amanda said...

Wow! Nice score! I had to comment on this awesome beautiful dress, because I had the same exact dress for sale last year and it sold on eBay for only $19.99! So in the future, you should check out my vintage store SHE TIGER VINTAGE every week!

Much Loves,
