I’ve been ogling so many vintage dresses on Etsy. I definitely want a 50s full skirted dress, but I have no idea where I’d wear it to. I only know that I would feel very special and lady-like in a dress that comes from that era. The possibility of who wore the dress and what happened when she wore it is such a romantic concept. Wearing vintage is definitely a whole other experience than wearing something new.
Here are some of my favourite dresses found on Etsy:
Prance and Swagger
Crafty Crow Vintage
Have a great weekend! Rueben and I are going on a mini-break this weekend and I am psyched! If you haven’t entered the Panda Panda and Friends giveaway yet you can do so here. 14 January is the last day to enter.

I’ve been bookmarking my favourite looks on street style blogs for the past couple of weeks and I noticed a pattern. Most of the looks contain leather jackets! If I haven’t said this before on this blog then I am saying it now, I love leather! This pattern proves it. We can see from these looks that a little biker’s jacket looks great with various feminine looks. It definitely adds some edge to an outfit and makes it more noticeable. I don’t think there is a substitute for real leather. The best thing about it is that it’s a lifetime investment.
Even though Spring is here in South Africa, I don’t think we need to say goodbye to leather jackets just yet. I think they’re an easy way to keep warm on a the chillier Spring or even Summer nights. I’ve owned many leather jackets and found that I could wear them all year. These little jackets look especially good with floral dresses which are undoubtedly very popular already in South Africa.
