Romantic Summer Wedding

Well ok, not MY wedding, but I attended a wedding a few weekends ago and finally managed to get my pictures sorted!

You might be surprised by this look, after seeing me in super casuals in my AC/DC outfit. But I always love switching between girly pretty, hippy and alternative...

The wedding was definitely flat shoe territory as both the ceremony and the reception were held on grass. I used a gold theme for the accessories, just to keep it simple.

I had the thongs from my friend Erin's wedding last year, so all I had to do was to find a gold belt. Well! That was a mission. In the end I found it in the most unexpected place - in a recycled boutique in Goolwa, South Australia! I already had the armband from years ago and bless my dear god mother, who sewed me a black underslip while I was sick on the sofa!

My hair was done using Strawberry Koi Vintage' tutorials on pin curls. Can't wait to attend the vintage fair this weekend in Adelaide. I am attending a vintage hair and beauty session with the Lindy Charm School for Girls!

Dress: Vintage, Salvos Sydney
 Black Underslip: Handmade
Belt: Second-hand, Recycled Boutique Goolwa
Sandels: Steve Madden

PS! Would love to know your guesses on the rough period of this dress. (No label)...

Great dress. I also need to watch that tutorial for pincurls. I need to find some good thrift shops around here, you've inspired me!

I love this look. What a fantastic find at Salvos. I think the dress is 70s though I asked my partner for his opinion and he thinks 1920s.
