Birthday Outfit!

Candices birthday2 1 Birthday Outfit!

A BIG thank you to you all for your kind birthday wishes! I had a lovely relaxing family day on Sunday at my Mum’s and Dad kindly took some outfit photos for me to share with you all. Birthday’s are one of the best reasons to dress up.. any way you choose. Not that this outfit is all that different from my usual attire, but it is the first time I’ve worn this dress with a crinoline. Actually it is the first time I have worn this dress as it has been waiting in the cupboard for my waist to get just a touch smaller, so I was very pleased to be able to break it out for the day.

The dress is a 1980′s cotton, New Zealand designer vintage piece, which is a classic example of 1980′s does the 1940′s. I love the big cabbage rose print and the swishy skirt. I paired it with a fab reproduction crinoline picked up at Circa Vintage (where else!) and a 1950′s beaded cashmere cardigan as the sun was out but the chill was still in the air. And you may notice that I finally found an era appropriate watch,with a great winding mechanism and clear face, at the Salvo’s last week for a grand total of $15! There’s that clothing karma again.

So here’s to birthday’s and great dresses.  There is so much joy to be had in dressing up!
