A dress for my hen party

I may have been sofa bound but I have managed to do a few things. Like buy myself a dress for the hen party.

We are having a 1920s themed vintage tea party. I couldn't find anything I liked which was truly 20s within my budget and I didn't want to wear a high street version.

So I decided to find something vintage which reflected the flapper theme which I could dress up *retro* with pearls and a headband and so on, but which I would actually wear again.

I can picture this over some skinny jeans and a shrunken fitted black blazer.

Plus, it's my favourite colour. And was £13. Including postage.

That is a sassy dress. I love the lace detail at the neckline. And for £13? You scored big time.

It was from a vintage shop on Etsy.

Looks good in the shop photos but we'll see!

I'm reading the book Alligators, Old Miks & New Money, and it opens with talking about a slip/dress that sounds EXACTLY like that one looks!
