I had a vintage event last night after work which meant if I was going to dress up, I would have to wear something to work.
I chose this dress…..
partly because it makes me smile and partly because I rarely wear this dress. I packed my petticoat and nice shoes in a bag and off to work I went. ( You can read about the construction of the dress, here, here, here and here).
While wearing this dress yesterday, not including while at the vintage event, I received no less than 5 compliments on the dress. I was surprised…nay almost shocked. Yes, I like the dress but I have never worn anything that I made that received the sheer number of compliments I received yesterday from this dress. The compliments crossed many lines, young and old; men and women. Two women actually waved me down in a train station to tell me how much they loved my dress.
