Wearing one of the dreamiest beaded dresses that I could not stop staring at when I removed it from the parcel. I can see myself wearing this one for many years to come.

Shoes - Poetic Licence
When I saw this beautiful dress in the Unique Vintage new arrivals section I was head over heels for it and already new what shoes and bag I would wear it with. This dress is 30's inspired and the way I have styled is a bit of a mix of 20's, 30's and 50's (mainly my hair) - I can't help but mix eras sometimes. I do like how my hair turned out after styling it - big hair and a few quick finger waves worked well together (at least I think so, haha).
I went with lots of sparkly accessories to compliment the dress, because who doesn't want glittery shoes and a sparkly purse to go with a dress like this?! I have the dress in size 8 and love the fit, the waist is a little loose which is just right for a 20's or 30's dress and I absolutely love how relaxed I felt whilst wearing it. This dress is fully lined so you don't have to worry about buying a slip to go with it. I always love to see what new flapper fashion that is on offer from Unique Vintage as they have such a good range to choose from.
I bought this purse probably five years ago at a boot sale and haven't used it much but bought it because I thought it was pretty, it only cost $2 so I thought why not. I love having purses and jewellery stored and waiting for the perfect outfit. If I find nice vintage accessories for a cheap price at second hand stores or boot sales I usually grab it if I think it will be used eventually. It makes mixing and matching new/old clothing and accessories fun.
My hair has been cut shorter since these photos and you will see what it looks like in my next blog post later this week.
