FASHION: Vintage Gingham Sundress





Dress | Vintage Shop Dublin

Hat | New Look

Bag | Accessorize sale

My husband jokes that wherever we go I can always find a charity shop (we once went to Germany and I found an Oxfam!) and when we were in Dublin back in February I stumbled across a vintage shop. We had just got off the bus to visit the Jameson distillery when out of the corner of my eye I saw a warehouse with a sign that read "Vintage, 15 euros per kilo" and that was it, in I ran!

I didn't have much time and quickly picked up two dresses and a sequin blazer which came to 22 Euros. I loved this dress so much I new it was definitely coming on holiday with me!! When we decided to go to a Festa evening in Malta I thought it was the perfect time to wear it. The dress is fitted at the top with this lovely tie up detail at the back.

I paired it with my favourite soda pop bag (I am in love with accessorize bags, but only buy them in the sale!) and my straw hat which was a god send for keeping the sun out of my face all holiday!

Did you know I have a lifestyle blog? You can follow it HERE.


I have added this outfit to the Link Up below ... the first time I have ever done this!

  2. I love this dress. The back detail is adorable. I'm a sucked for anything corset laced up. And just gives such a flattering finish. And oh man that bag is amazing. I need it in my life!!
