My sister spent the day in Bendigo today and we of course went shopping. I have so birthday money from my MIL and my mum
The Take 2 Market was on at the Town Hall which focuses on vintage, Preloved and new clothing. Bumped I to a lady I know who closed her boutique (new clothing) some months ago (it was one of the few stores I shop at here) and she was selling off some of her stock at the market. So first purchase is
#1- # 3 - blue draped dress. Cut very similar to the Metalicus dress and I bought it without trying on! I think it's a keeper but please do tell me if you see so etching I don't. I may have to get the non drape side of the dress tapered a little. You can see in pic 3 how there is additional fabric. In #1 & #2 I have tapered that seam.
#4-#7 is a dark navy subtle cocoon style dress - with long sleeves!! Difficult to photograph the colour but tried to show the difference against my black tights in #7. The label is "Piper" purchased at Myer (Aus version of Nordies?). It is a wool blend and feels lovely on. Again I think it's a keeper but value your opinions.
Neither dress is styled. Just threw on the boots and popped the dresses on over my tights. The navy dress will need a bright silver pendant I think and works great under a couple of my jackets. The blue will be a great Spring Summer dress but can be layered over to wear now.
Both dresses fit my criteria for purchases. I think they both reflect my style preferences, they are comfortable, will work as part of a layered ensemble and will be versatile enough for various occasions.
May I keep them?
Thanks for taking a look and hope you are having a fab weekend.
