Yellow is my absolute favourite colour as it makes me so happy to wear it! So of course I was thrilled when I found this beautiful vintage number. Read on to find out more about its story!
I spotted this breathtaking 1950s dress at the Portobello Road markets on my trip to London a couple of years ago. It was hanging up at one of the stalls and I was terrified that it was just for display, but when I asked I was fortunately told that it was indeed for sale! I didn’t even need to try it on as I knew even from first glance it would be the perfect fit for me.
This vintage stunner is a sweet pale custardy yellow colour, which makes me feel like a walking cupcake when I wear it! The organdy overlay features delicate flocked flowers in darker yellow, white, and olive green; there are some remnants of the velvet which must have covered them originally but the print still remains. There is also a ribbon at the waist which ties at the back in a bow. I chose to accessorise with a yellow necklace and heels, olive gloves as a contrast, and a glorious handmade hair flower courtesy of Katherine’s handiwork.
