Al took these photos while we were back in the UK together, I meant to upload them to the blog weeks ago but I’d not really felt like bogging until recently so here they are, a little later than planned. When I was packing for my trip back home, the UK was in the middle of a heat wave so I kept my fingers crossed that the sun would keep shining while I was there, and packed a few summery outfits to wear.
This was one of them, although sadly I think I only managed to wear it once as it turned out that the UK heat wave was a tad mild for me after living in India for the past 6 months. I picked up this vintage dress back in August while we were in Delhi. I’ve not had much luck finding vintage shops in Bangalore; I get the feeling that shinny new things are much more desirable, but Delhi has a burgeoning vintage scene so I made sure we visited some of them while we were there.
I found this dress in Les Parisiennes in Delhi. It’s a different look for me, I like to broaden my options a little and try to introduce some new styles into my wardrobe.
I’ve always loved the look of vintage dresses on others but when I have
the chance to invest in something for myself, I struggle to find
something I really love, so was really pleased when I spotted this little dress in the corner of the shop. The style is perfect for my pear shape and I know it’s
something I know I’ll get a lot of use out of over in India.
I’d naturally gravitate towards wearing a studded belt and flat sandals or
converse with a dress like this (I sometimes feel too dressy in heels) but in the spirit of trying something new, I thought I’d team it with a pair of heels.

looks or are you someone who loves to wear something different every
