Hello, my dears, it’s Emily Rae here!
First and foremost, I decided to switch up the font on here, hope nobody minds 🙂 ‘Twas time for a little change!
As some of you know, today is actually my 20th birthday! I had such a lovely time with friends and family these past few days and am feeling inspired to write!
I am not usually one to make a huge deal about my birthday, however, my best friends and lovely family truly made it a special one that I will never forget. On the agenda for this past Saturday was swing dancing with my dears in which I HAD to share with y’all the outfit I wore!
As soon as I saw this dress on the Unique Vintage site (check it out here), I knew it would be the perfect pick for a night of swing dancing. While it fit like a glove and went perfectly with my victory rolls and red lipstick, the dress unfortunately did not survive the night! Whilst at dinner, the zipper completely broke, making it non-repairable by the end of the evening (leading to a dress change mid-night!). However, I did get a few photos of the dress in its glory which I shall share with you all now.
This 1950’s style swing dress has the perfect fit & flare style that is curve-hugging yet comfortable, or was, before it split open, should I say 😦 .
I paired my look with some black dangling earrings and strappy black wedges that were impeccably comfy to swing dance in!
As for other festivities of the night, my friends and I went to an old-fashioned diner beforehand and danced with the loveliest folks during the swing dance. It was so nice to be able to attend an event where you share the same music taste and love for vintage things with others! Even though it may not be my friends cup of tea, I certainly appreciated their thought in taking me for my birthday.
In other news, I can’t wait to create some fun fall posts for the upcoming weeks! I have an entire list of ideas saved in my notebook that I cannot wait for y’all to see. For now, I wish everyone an amazing week ahead!
As always, I’m Emily Rae, wishing you all a lovely day!
