A bank in the nature, the autumn sun, and a good book – this is all I need for a relaxed afternoon outside. It is still warm enough to go out without a thick jacket or cardigan. Yet, the summer heat is finally over – my favourite time of the year just begun! I enjoy wearing warm, vibrant colours, and of course my beloved stockings. A wonderful dress for an autumn day is the “Ella 40s Swing Dress” by Miss Candyfloss, designed by the one and only Miss Victory Violet, who I met just a few weeks ago at Revival Retro.

The raspberry red is simply amazing and exactly what I’ve been searching for a very long time now. The cute details and the longer hemline make this retro dress a must-have. To give the skirt a bit more volume, I wore a true vintage petticoat from the 50s underneath. PS: In this blog post, Ella tells you something about her inspiriation for the design.

I accessorized the dress with my beautiful new fully fashioned  “Glamour European Heel” stockings by Secrets in Lace. As always, the quality is amazing and they feel so authentic! I own some true vintage nylons, so I know what I’m talking about. Gloves, shoes by Lena Hoschek, and a hairflower by Sophisticated Lady finish this daytime retro look.

In the photos I’m browsing the book “Chanel: Collections and Creations“. A wonderful picture book for Chanel lovers like me.

PS: Miss Victory Violet also desinged a beautiful emerald green dress which you can shop here.

  1. You look wonderful! The tartan detail on the dress is lovely. The petticoat is a great touch, petticoats give a lovely added bounce to my walk, and super twirls when dancing!

    And another beautiful heel on your stockings! They really are quite special, they look so delicate and must be tricky to put on, I’d put my nails straight through!

  2. Another truly fabulous dress – the colour and the pattern is just amazing. And I love the combination of the heel on your stockings with those great shoes. A glorious look!
