I found this dress hanging sadly by itself in that crazy City Chic sale everyone in the plus size blogosphere went crazy over, all alone I had to pick it up, it was like it was meant for me;
Polka Dots – Check
Mesh – Check
Skater Dress – Check
Adorable collar – Check Check,
It was so perfect, and I had instant dreams of wearing it to my birthday dinner a few weeks later. However it was not in my size. My heart sunk, I immediately called about 10 surrounding stores all to no avail. It had sold out online too; it seems everyone loved my dress as much as I did.
I called one more store, on the other side of town, as one last attempt at happiness and lo and behold they had one in my size. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten out of my pajamas and into my car so quickly in my life.
I have literally worn this dress non stop since I bought it, although the sleeves are only mesh, they do provide some relief from Melbourne’s icy winds and the thick fabric is a godsend.
As for my jewellery in todays post, a little while ago, the lovely Paula of Pieces of The Past contacted me about giving me some pieces to take for a spin. To say I jumped at the chance was an understatement.
Pieces of The Past specialize in hand made single and limited edition pieces, alongside some real vintage pieces too, all in a vintage rockabilly style.
Her collection is beautiful, starting with traditional rockabilly jewellery with a twist, Paula and her team are now venturing into rockabilly clothing, shoes and accessories.
(I’m already eyeing off a 2 piece green swimsuit and about 5 dresses)
Pieces of the Past are a new, beautiful entry into the rockabilly market, with amazingly good prices, reaaaallllyy cheap shipping (From $5 internationally) and a fantastic range, I will definitely be buying from Paula in the future and I recommend you do to!
