 (vintage dress, hot topic necklace, alexander wang shoes)

So I bought this dress a long while ago from Very Best Vintage, which I used live to nearby, but sadly now is no longer within walking distance. Note the Good Catholic Girl vibes and Adele steez and high resemblance to Prada  Fall 2008 (one of my favorite collections of all time omg SO INSPIRING); this is what sold me! As it is my policy to (for the most part) only post outfits which am I wearing IN REAL LIFE, it has taken a few months for it to be posted. But on Friday, the boyfriend and I decided to go on a mini-date to Longman & Eagle. Which as it so happens, I now live literally around the corner from! Do you like french fries fried in beef fat? Do you like whiskey drinks with more mixers than are stars in the sky? Do you like getting extremely intoxicated on a patio for hours while noshing on gastro food that does NOT call itself ~*artisanal*~? Than L&E is probably the place for you! 

In 20 years, everything in vintage and thrift stores are going to be made from shitty jersey cotton. So let's enjoy super well-made vintage garments while we can! This dress fits me perfectly and the fabric is very heavy and well-made. It's saddening to consider that clothing today isn't made with the same quality as before, yet the prices, when adjusted for inflation, have remained the same. I hope to give this wonderful dress many more years of happy wear.

Oh god, I never thought about the future of vintage shopping. That scares me a bit. I really love your glasses in this, and I like that you mentioned you'll only post things you wear in real life. Very important!! x
