Dress - 1960s Vintage from Uncle Sam's Vintage Clothing in Oxford
Hair band - High street (New Look, maybe) | Shoes - Primark | Bracelet - gift
I picked up this handmade 60s dress in Oxford when I was visiting last year. It's perfect for the hot weather we've been having recently (by English standards at least) as its quite loose fitting and comfortable. The blue and yellow colours make me think of Snow White so I added the red hairband to complete the look. I thought the heart padlock bracelet was a nice nod to the box that is meant for Snow White's heart.
The dress needed a little TLC before I could wear it. One or two of the seams needed mending and a button was missing. It originally had six buttons (so was down to five buttons with the missing one) and since I've so far not found a matching replacement, I just took the odd button off and went down to four buttons instead. I've kept the odd one just in case I ever find a match though!
