Holiday Outfit Post # 1: The Vintage LBD
This will be the first in a series of posts featuring my holiday outfits. They are all outfits that have never been featured on this blog (though I didn't plan it that way when I packed my suitcase!) When I packed, I tried to be as sensible as possible and left my gloves/ hats at home (apart from my straw hat!)
I visited the South of France and stayed in Gruissan for a few days, as my boyfriend's parents own an apartment on the marina. These photos below were taken in Gruissan's Old Town on the day that we arrived.
I am wearing my new wedges and they are great (I will endeavour to get a close-up photo next time!) They are from Johnsons Shoes so are new but they are made in the style of 1940s wedges and they are so comfortable! I just love all the heeled shoes on their website and I am hoping to buy some in the near future. I find it really difficult buying vintage shoes because I don't like to buy them online (due to not knowing for sure if they will fit.) This leaves me to stumbling across vintage shoes in my size in shops or buying repro shoes or modern shoes in a vintage style.
The dress is also a style that I really like and I just love the cute eyelet detail.
