Top Mode Dress #2

Finally some pictures of my Top Mode
40s dress.

I am starting to get used to my new look now, no longer surprised at the be-fringed one in the mirror.

My rag curling abilities are improving, so the results are less erratic all the time. That said, I think the breeze blowing through my hair masks the short comings of my curls in the pictures.

I am rather enjoying how well the fringe suits BIG hair accessories, bows and topper/tilt hats. I have tried a few on yesterday and I'll definitely have to keep my eyes peeled for head wear from now on.

Dress: The Old Chemist Antique Shop
Tights: eBay
Shoes: Ark Vintage


  1. I love the juxtaposition of the vintage dress with the graffiti on the wall. Did you have someone take the photos or did you do it yourself?

    Thanks doll,

  2. I use a self-timer and tripod.
    Usually I take my pictures early in the morning when I have the streets to myself, but today I just ignored the stares :-)

  3. I ruin rag curls all the time. Yours look fantastic.

  4. I have got really fine hair so copious amounts of styling wax are my saving grace when it comes to curls. Without it I resemble my cousin's barbie doll after we left her in her pool over night. :-)

  5. I love your dress and the hair looks good too!
    And I like it when wind makes its presence known in pictures :)

    Edit: Hehehe, the word verification I got for this comment means "Hello, bitch!" in my language! :D

  6. What a truly beautiful dress! And I love the graffiti background... what a great contrast!

  7. love these photos, the backdrop is fantastic! It highlights how sweet and dainty you are.
    Tres pretty

  8. It looks wonderful on you!
