Restyle: Mary Tyler Moore

I got my babe of a friend Lisa (also a fellow Restyler!) to take my photos for me today, which is why they're much better than my usual efforts! This is a dress I got a little while ago... maybe even a couple of years ago? I actually bought it when I was starting up an online vintage shop, but I ended up keeping this one. It reminds me so much of something they would wear on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Maybe it's the print? And the long sleeves?



Anyway, it's been languishing in my closet for ages before I finally got my mum to take it up for me (which is why the hemline is a little bulky, I couldn't even wait before it was properly finished to wear it!). I love it so much now! It's actually kind of perfect for cold weather too because it's such a thick material.

Anyway, I'm going to keep it short and sweet today because Lisa and I might have celebrated the start of Restyle a little too exuberantly (and with a little too much wine) last night and it is definitely time for an early night!

  3. Oh wow I love the colour and the print of this dress - and you just can't go wrong with a simple shirt dress. Just beautiful! PS - hope the hangover's gone now. If not, drink some more haha xx

  4. My mum used to do that for me. School skirts always ended up embarrassing in the hem department! The trick is to not be afraid of cutting some off the bottom, so you can just do a little hem. It's a super pretty colour!

    1. Haha I feel ya on the school skirts! This was just sewn up really loosely to check if the length is okay, but I couldn't resist taking it out for a spin! And thank you - I hardly have any blue clothes (my primary school uniform was blue!) so it's nice to find a dress in such a gorgeous hue! x
