I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to feature this maxi dress on my blog. I bought it over a year ago from a vintage fair in my local town for the small price of £15 - which I thought was pretty decent! I originally planned to do a little DIY on it and make it into a mini dress but it seemed such a shame to destroy the original 1970's garment. I think the design is quite unusual and the showcase of palm trees and boats reminds me of the long summer nights that I spent wearing this dress last year. The rowing boats are perhaps quite fitting when considering the Olympic glory Great Britain has experienced in London 2012 - addicted.
I didn't realise it at the time but I've gone for all tan accessories with the dress - bag, shoes, watch and belt! Subconscious accessorising!
I seriously cannot believe it's August already. Next month is a month of huge change for me.. I'm moving to London, starting university and turning 19! I suddenly feel all grown up..
