This dress was given to me as a gift for my birthday in 2011, I attended a friend's birthday party and decided that it was time for it to be shown off again for it's second time.
It is a genuine 1950s dress which I believe was homemade. With it's luxurious (and rather heavy) fabric, bright colours and unique style of dress it is a very festive dress.
I wore my backseams and garterbelt as usual... Unless it's horribly hot (Thanks a lot Australian weather)! I walked around in my favourite little black strap up heels, my 1950s beaded purse and finally I added my vintage starfish clip-on earings.
I ate plenty of food and had some of the yummy cake which had two different flavoured layers: red velvet and strawberries & cream. I had to show you a photo of the beautiful cake!
Well, that sums up my outfit post! I'll add a couple of happy snaps with the birthday girl and my lovely boyfriend on my Tumblr page tomorrow! Find me there!
