Chasing chevrons

I’m getting to that point where my wardrobe is so stuffed with dresses that I am forgetting what I have in it. A couple of weeks ago, the lovely ladies at Gudrun Sjoden, knowing my penchant for all things Swedish at the moment, gave me this cute a-line skirt as a Midsommar present (as you can perhaps see from the flower crown). It’s made from a light jersey fabric and will be perfect for casual wear in the autumn 🙂

But its chevron design reminded me that I have a vintage dress I probably haven’t worn in two years that I completely forgot I even had. It’s a lovely 1940s number with bodice pleats and chevrons in the skirt. I’m digging this bad gyal out right away! The moral of this story is to not have a tiny wardrobe stuffed to bursting with things – you forget you have awesome dresses hiding away in there!

Living Vintage

I am trying to do some cleaning out in my house and I seriously forgot I had 4 bins of vintage clothes I meant to post on ebay. Who knows as I ipen these and go through them I may find items that I now am in love with that I wasn't as interested when I put them in the bins oh I'd say about 9 or 10 years ago (oh boy am I old).

I guess the moral is to have a big wardrobe filled with vintage dresses instead 😉 Can't wait to have more space in my bedroom to fit a bigger closet. Ours is really tiny…
