Que Sera, Sera

For some time now, I have been wanting to try Lady Vintage London. Their 1950's-inspired dresses are right up my alley in terms of personal style -- I can imagine a young Mary Jane Russell posing in Vogue circa 1951 in one of these gorgeous flared skirts.
The company was actually started by a husband/wife team (Sergio and Victoria) after deciding they wanted to create beautiful, vintage dresses at affordable prices -- and I can't help but find that really admirable; not to mention adorable.
I've seen some of their dresses on my friends Isha and Georgina in the past -- and they come highly recommended -- so it was just a matter of waiting until I found the perfect one for myself. Low and behold the Jade Green Polka Dot "Isabella" Dress. Besides the fact that green is my favorite color, and that I have no will power when it comes to polka dots, the neckline and full skirt are just absolutely darling. I did find that I should've sized down (the UK 20/US 16 actually being a bit large on me) but I kept the looser fit because it provides more airiness for the summer months ahead.
I'm beginning to get excited about the possibilities of the season. Once this week is over (during which I have to write a full draft of my 18,000-word dissertation), I'm going to make it a priority to do the things I want to be doing. The things I actually love doing. Writing. Traveling. Spending time with Patrick. Watching a lot of Star Trek. Taking long walks on the moors. Going to Paris, and later Ghana. Drinking large pints of cider. And probably eating a lot of cheese. I definitely believe that finding ensembles that really resonate with your personality facilitates doing the things you want to be doing. So I have no doubt this vintage gem will play a part in the months ahead.
