One More Red

02 November 2009









Like mother like daugther. I found this dress out of my mom's closet
a few months ago and instantly fell in love with it. It's smooth, silky,
and fits like a glove. It's so funny how my mom's style in the 80's
has shown to be quite similar to mine 20 years later. I definitely miss
her closet over here in London! So yeah to any annoying anonymous
"skinny" comments... petite runs in the family.

Now I know it's a day or two too late, but I wore this dress for the
first time the other night for Halloween! I was none other than
Minnie Mouse.



wearing: vintage dress & ears, H&M wedges, f21 cardi

Ignore the haters - obviously just jealous. I love this dress - my mum and I are quite different sizes (i'm about 5 inches taller!) so I can't rob anything fitted. And you look gorgeous in red.

Christina said...

I love this so much! I opened this post on my Google reader and literally gasped when I saw the red ruffly dress and polka-dot cardigan. I love red, ruffles, dots, cardigans, and MINNIE MOUSE happens to be my number one style icon. Thanks for the inspiration!

Valencia Lia said...

Beautiful beautiful red dress and with that polka dot cardigan:)
Love love the side ruffles too.

And I love digging through my mom or dad's closet for some things I could steal and wear.

my mom said she had so many dresses she actually threw,which is sad. If only she known her daughter would love it years back. heeee

And your minnie mouse ears are so adorable !

Sher said...

Minnie Mouse! How adorable!

The red dress is lovely and I heart the polka dot cardigan! It's so wonderful that you can wear your mom's clothes, I wish my mom hadn't thrown away all her old clothes! You are very lucky:)
