Two weeks ago I had the mind-blowingly good fortune to spend a day travelling on the famous Orient Express with a group of chums. A full post gushing about how wonderful it all was will follow next week, but firstly here is the outfit I wore for the excursion. As you can see I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face all day.
This is one of my favourite vintage dresses. It is by a label called Trevise of Paris and is in a lovely thick black jersey. The best thing about it is the gorgeous folk style embroidery and the fringing at the hem. The thread used for the seams of the dress is quite fragile and I can’t tell you how many times I have had to mend it, but I don’t mind. When you find something that is perfect you are happy to keep on repairing as much as is needed.
Outfit details: 60s vintage dress by Trevise, black fishnet tights, 1950s black broderie anglaise kitten heel shoes, lipstick in Ruby Woo by Mac.
