For this week’s Through the Lens Thursday, I picked a dress from my past and from someone else’s past. I bought this dress in a vintage shop in Paris in about 1988 on a college trip with Lincoln Art College. I was 18 years old, studying for my BTEC in fashion design course and we were in Paris for research and a trip up the Eiffel tower!
I thought this dress was the best thing I had ever found and I have worn it lots over the years. I think it was handmade but I am not sure of the era, maybe 50’s or 60’s and it is a classic little black dress. I have worn it with Dr Martens and high heels and I wore it on my 40th birthday.
Next week’s Through the Lens Thursday prompt is ‘Four’.
A vintage dress from Paris is just about the most glamorous thing I can think of! I love it against that wood, too.
It is a bit old now, but then it was old to begin with! A lovely vintage.
what a beautiful classic with such history!
Thanks Tracie, I love that I can still wear it!
A beautiful dress, story and photo about a special LBD. Love your blog, Clare 🙂
Thanks Isabel, I do love that dress.
