The power of a new dress (even if really it is an old dress)

On Tuesday, I was feeling pretty tired and overworked – probably because I work too much, I can only blame myself for this one – but an email from Natasha Bailie made my day a little bit brighter. She was saying she had a perfect dress for me and wanted to send it my way. That’s pretty sweet, right? I love it when people get me so well even though we don’t know each other. I received the dress this morning, took it out of the bag and was instantly in love with it. It is vintage but could also be by an emerging designer as its abstract print is very modern. The colour is perfect for my hair too! Obviously, I couldn’t wait to put it on so I played around with it for a bit this morning and ended up styling it in a rather simple way with my biker jacket and black tights/boots + some bright accessories.

If you are after pretty vintage dresses in really good condition, I would recommend Natasha’s shop. The dresses are pretty affordable too and the selection is very good.
