Grandma chic

Today i turn 26 so what better to post today than a dress that wouldn't look out of pace in my nan's  wardrobe ;) I love vintage clothes but i really love pieces that i have or could have seen my nan wearing.
I actually wore this outfit yesterday to visit my nan and she commented on how nice it was. I'm sure this dress won't be to everyones taste but i love it !!


The dress came from eBay for the bargain price of £3.50, its a size 24 which is a little to big for me but it buttons all the way up without gaping so yey!

The dress had a label in it for Changes i did a quick google search and it seems this is a brand offered by Marisota, it does seem to be aimed at the older end of the scale but that doesn't mean there won't be something you'll love. I sometimes find vintage dresses in my size and style hard to find and although this isn't vintage i think it does have a old feel to it, so it goes to show you can achieve a vintage style even if you can't find vintage in your size or style.

The dress came with back ties but as its a bit too big for me so i added a belt from another dress. The material of the dress is quite thin which will be great for the summer and it has a lovely floral print on it. 
I wore the dress with Primark shoes and headband and a brooch I've had for a while that was from ebay  like the dress.

The hubby was looking very handsome so i had to take his picture too!

  10. The dress is really pretty, the colours remind me of autumn. Your hubs is very dapper! One of the things I most admire in people is the ability to be themselves, even if it's not a popular style. You rock the granny look. I have the habits of a granny - I'm a homebody, and I love a nice cup of tea and my cosy slippers.

    I hope you've had a lovely birthday. xx

  15. Happy belated birthday hun! Hope you had a lovely one!

    I actually really love this dress. You look like a 1940s fashionista in it- and that's a good thing, I should say. I love the shape and your rockabilly fringe really brings the look together. C'est parfait! xx

  16. I love granny chic! My aunt actually just brought me back an 80s-does-40s dress from Florida, and you can't tell the difference once you're all spruced up! Love your dress!
