vintage blog: 1960s outfit

I bought this outfit a couple of weeks ago and this was the first chance I’d really had to wear it. I love the spring colours in it, and I also love the fact that it’s a handmade dress from the 1960s which has now been passed down to another generation. I have no idea who the original wearer was, or even which country she came from, but I love the idea of wearing a little piece of somebody’s history!

I’m also thinking of wearing this dress to one of the days at Goodwood Revival this year, what do you think? I just need a smart pair of white block-heeled shoes and a boxy white handbag to complete the look!

I need to choose a vintage 60s outfit to wear to Goodwood Revival, which of my outfits so far do you think I should go for?
