Frolicking Frocks

See I have always loved avant garde vintage dresses. I can spend hours finding vintage gems on Ebay purely just to ogle. However these days I found myself wanting to own them despite not having any occasions to wear them to, purely because they’re such inspirational pieces and perhaps one day I shall replicate them in other colours and materials.

These two dresses were auctioned in Ebay a month ago. I got outbid on both occasions. For those who have experienced that you know how vexing it can be to lose at the last few seconds.

So anyway I kept hunting for the tailcoat dress and after weeks of perseverance I finally got it at a decent price.

I know I should have accessorised a little or layer it or something but as usual I was just too excited when receiving the pretty dress. And then sometime later I remembered this:

Speaking of Balmain, the S/S 10 collection is quite a disappointment IMHO. I just spent a whole day looking through all the fashion shows on and I’ve picked out my favourite looks (about 150 of them). The next post shall be extremely image heavy.

    Holy shit, that second dress you featured is incredible! I wish you could’ve won it.
