Pretty in Pastels

There's this whole pastels trend going on at the moment. It's a colour palette that normally irks me but I've been having a bit of fun with it this summer and enjoying all the candy-coloured shades. So when I spied this supercute vintage shift dress while opshopping at Vinnies it caught my eye. For 9 bucks who can resist?

I love the apple green colour contrasting with the pastel pink and orange florals. It's such a retro summer house-frock.

I also think it goes great with the Tatty Devine Lotus flower necklace that I got for half price in their sale last year. It's sold out now but they've got another end of season sale on now that I recommend checking out. I'm also sporting candy-pink lippy. I have no idea what it's called but it would've just been a cheapy one from Priceline!

My other candy-coloured accessories are my purple Docs sandals and hot pink Cambridge satchel from ASOS. I think the retro sunnies (also from ASOS) work well with the whole vintage vibe.

I do sometimes wonder about the little old Grannies who must've worn some of my old vintage frocks before me. I presume they must all be mad old cat ladies and that that's why the mood rubs off on me!

I think it's so great to give this garments a second life though - and that they all have a story to tell. Like an old house, or antiques - it's nice that they can get passed down and loved all over again in a whole new way. Makes such a contrast to so much of the disposable fashion up for grabs at your local Westfield.
