A little while ago I was VERY excited to find these vintage sheets at the Op (Thrift) shop.
I adored them SO much and knew that I really really wanted them for a dress for myself, and maybe one for my girl too. I was BEYOND excited when the lovely Theresa of Rummage Style so kindly said she would make me a dress using my fabric. I love that she offers this service with her dresses, it's a great way to use a special piece of fabric you may have been saving.
I couldn't get my fabric in the post quick enough and I excitedly waited to see how my dress would look. Fast forward to last week when I was doing my usual facebook checkup when I saw this photo pop up on Rummage Style's page.
I'm pretty sure the neighbours must have heard my squeal of delight. These were MY dresses and I wasy beyond thrilled. They were perfect for me and I couldn't wait to wear them.The dress on the left is a Shift dress and the yellow dress is a Messenger dress.
On Monday of this week some happy mail arrived. And inside this brown paper package (the best things come in brown paper packages!) were my new Rummage Style dresses. Eeeek!! I was SO excited and couldn't wait to open my parcel.
Yesterday was the day - the day I wore my yellow Messenger dress for the first time. I teamed it with some grey tights, my vintage boots, one of my favourite lace scarves and my gorgeous new Sconnie and Jam necklace and brooch (more about them in another blog post because I LOVE them so much, they need their own post). Let me tell you, I felt SO comfortable and so good in my new outfit. I honestly could wear this dress EVERY day, it was soft, comfy and totally ME. So, without further ado, here's what I wore...
Dress - Messenger Dress by Rummage Style
Scarf - Valley Girl
Tights - Sportsgirl
Grey and white top - Op shop
Boots - Ramjet Assortments
Brooch and Ring - Sconnie and Jam
I think it is safe to say that this is now one of my most favourite outfits and if you are a local, you will most likely see me in this dress very regularly. I will be wearing this dress in the warmer months too with my saltwater sandals. I just love it so much. If you have a special piece of fabric that you might like made into a dress or top, the head on over to Rummage Style and check out all the different styles Theresa has to offer. I suggest you follow her on Facebook too, to see the gorgeous ready made dresses that pop up regularly as well. I may just have another gorgeous dress on the way shhh.
