Daily Outfit – Mama Circa 1959
Today’s daily outfit was for meetings, lunch and generally gadding about in bookstores. The dress is a gorgeous early 1960′s, late 1950′s piece in a cotton waffle weave fabric. I feel in love with it the minute I saw it at the Love Vintage Show earlier this year and had to have it… even though at the time I couldn’t even get the zip done up. *cough* Perhaps I’d been to lunch too many times that week. Anyway, it hung around in the wardrobe for a while but I could only wear it when corseted down, that is until today! Yay! Cause let’s face it, corsets might look dead sexy but I tell you, trying to get down and play lego in them is hell and not advisable. Heels on the other hand (foot?) are do-able. They just need to be cute AND sturdy to work.

I love my vintage and I love my things a little extra fancy, but it is critically important that I can still do everything I need to without fear of dirt, damage or puncturing a rib. And that is why I take a leaf from the book of women of the past to make it work.
The secret? An apron!
