The last few weeks have been pretty busy. There are a lot of upcoming exams and I rarely found time to take new outfit photos. Luckily, I discovered some pictures from our trip to London which I never shared here on the blog.

A grey Pencil Dress for a Day in London

For a bloggers meet-up with a lot of lovely vintage ladies at the Revival Retro Boutique, I wore an elegant grey pencil dress, designed by the one and only Idda van Munster for Miss Candyfloss, which you maybe already know from this blog post. Unfortunately, the dress was part of a limited collection and is no longer available, but I linked an alternative in the outfit details below.

This time, I teamed the pencil dress with classy black pumps and wore my hair down. All in all, it’s an outfit that works really well for everyday life and even for office. But as I wanted something a bit more special for the meet-up, I decided to wear tempting stockings by Agent Provocateur, which I already introduced in my blog post about stockings for an authentic vintage look.

Elegant gloves by Secrets in Lace and rose earrings by Glitter Paradise finish the retro outfit.

A Victorian Lodge from 1836

Our location was a Victorian Lodge from 1836. We took the photos in the living room, where also our “Tea Time” took place the next day. Read more about the afternoon with the lovely ladies from Revival Retro and blogger girls here.

I especially liked the mirror above the fireplace and the sparkling lamp. But the little break on the couch in front of big windows was great as well. 😉

  1. Did you know the colour scheme of the location before you went? Because your dress seems the perfect match. It really is a lovely dress – grey can seem so elegant when worn like this, and it’s a great fit on you. Oh, and those stockings again – they always make me smile and blush!! I never plucked up the courage to buy a pair… Kx

    1. Thank you Karen!
      No, I didn’t know the colour scheme before but we had to take some photos when we saw how beautiful the lodge was.
      I love those stockings but I only wear them for special occasions and when my boyfriend is with me. 😉
