Sunday Best!

Ok it’s been awhile but now I have more than one vintage dress and am happy not smiling in photos (I am not a smiley person, I did try in some of these photos and decided – nope not me) I can start to share some more of what I wear. It will still probably be sporadic though.

First I thought I would wear this headscarf in a bow….but I quickly realised it was driving me mental…

Glasses – Vintage from Etsy (real prescription…I am nearly blind without them)

Headscarf – Gift 

Brooch – Hunter & Co. (from the Truly Vintage Market Day)

Caramel Lambswool Vintage Sweater – Rock that Frock Etsy

Fleur De Lis Vintage Shirt Dress – Rock the Frock Etsy

60s Wool Houndstooth Coat – Audrey Scarlett Vintage (from the Love Vintage Show)

Cream Gloves, White Spilene Vintage Bag & Brown Ferragamos – Ebay

I have decided shirt dresses are the best thing in the world. I wore this dress to the Truly Vintage Market Day, but then this sweater arrived and I realised it would make a perfect ensemble. All I need now is a proper petticoat. I really want my skirts to poof out more.

What are you wearing this week?

Miss Fairchild xoxo

  1. Sunday best… not for me today! A few hours sleep means I can’t be bothered getting out of my dressing gown 😛 My dressing gown is sooooo cosy. I have an eBay buyer showing up in one hour and I’m already thinking up my “sorry I’m in my dressing gown” excuse… although I’ll see if I can get myself to Savers if my discount coupon hasn’t expired!

  2. You look smashingly lovely, dear Jess! That coat (and its lining) is so terrific! I bet it’s the sort of piece you’ll reach for time and time again over the years.

    I’m with you when it comes to shirtwaist dresses 100%. They’re a staple in my wardrobe, too. Whether genuine vintage or 80s does 40s or 50s, my closet is liberally peppered with these comfortable, chic classics.

    Wishing you an amazing June, honey!
    ♥ Jessica

    Love the lining in that coat, wow! And the flasher photo is great 😉

  4. You look gorgeous! Love the whole outfit! The coat is lovely, love that pattern!

    You look absolutely fabulous. Both smiling like a goon and more serious faced! xo

  6. Looking good girlfriend! I totally agree with you…if you don’t feel comfy smiling, don’t. If you want to start out with a semi-full petticoat (rather than a full on foofy one) I bought a modern repro from ebay that is great to start out with. They are a QLD company so the postage is quite reasonable. xx Shauna
