Frock on Friday





I just bought this fab dress on Monday and have been dying to show it to you all, and what better excuse than Frock on Friday?
It's a late 20s crepe, the tailoring is superb and it fits me beautifully. It needs quite a bit of mending (not to mention steaming, woops!) but it was cheap so I'm not complaining.




I love the sleeve details but it was hard to get a good pic. Ring, gift from darling Vix.




Paired with 40s grosgrain topper, a bit too tatty to sell so *damn* I might just have to keep it too, LOL.


Who else is doing Frock on Friday?? I've got my eye on you all!

Thanks for your feedback Pauline...it is what I suspected. Saying that, I stayed up all last night, watching a Joan Crawford movie (very apt) and loading some dress patterns onto a new Etsy shop. (etsy.com/laughingduckvintage) and got one sale immediatley! Maybe if I get some lovely quality vintage like yours I will do ebay.
