62 Dresses of mine, day 13

Day 13, dress 13!

This is the first dress I ever bought at beyond Retro (or, my mom did and gave it to me, to be honest) We spent a weekend in Stocholm, and she bought it at Beyond Retro when we had a shop in the SOUK-mall. Maybe 4 years ago I think... maybe 3 years. I've only been wearing it twice I think.

Went to the fleamarket, found myself a table!

(cheating and wearing jeans... but only for a couple of hours!)

62 Dresses of mine, day 12

Day 12, Dress 12.

Cheating again! Yet another tight, black dress and a transparent skirt over it! Dress from Monki, 2 years ago. Skirt from Yves Saint Laurent, from the 90's I think. Oh I do love to cheat, don't I.

62 Dresses of mine, day 11!

Day 11, dress 11!

A 50's dress I bought at work! it smelled like fish when I got it... so i call it The fish dress. It doesn't smell like that anymore, thank god! Perfect condition.

62 Dresses of mine, day 10!

Day 10, dress 10!

This is maybe the third time I'm using this dress. I bought it at a flea market for 10 swedish krowns. I don't really fancy it, actually... it makes me look so square. Dress from Zara.

62 dresses of mine, day 9.

Day 9, dress 9! Cheating again!

I'm wearing a sweatshirt over the dress. Dress is from H&M. It's a i-don't-really-care-look. If someone ask me of what I'm thinking of, my answer will be "pants".

62 dresses of mine!

Day 7, dress 7!

This is a Lanvin dress i bought at Beyond Retro. i think it was longer before, but that the former owner made it a short dress. I love it, the fabric is so soft and it's a great dress when I don't know what to wear.

62 dresses, dress 6

Day 6, dress 6

This dress is one of the most embarrassing. I feel like a garbage bag wearing it. It's my mothers old dress, H&M from the 80's. I cut of the lenght of it, and I'm hiding the pinguin arms with a cardigan.

62 dresses, dress 5

Day 5, dress 5

I bought this dress at Beyond Retro (surprise, again) But when I got it, it was longer and had arms on it.. it made me look like an old granny. But, I cut it of, and voila! This is the dress I wear when I don't know what to wear, and everything sucks.

So, this is dress of day 4! I bought it at beyond retro for a party, about 2 years ago... I never used it at the party, but this is the third time i'm wearing it! 70's dress with sequins and pearls on front.

62 Dresses of mine, day 3!

This is a 60's dress that i bought at my job, Beyond Retro (SURPRISE!). I think it's handsewn. I match it with stockings with a seam in the back, belt, pincurls, and big eyeliner!

Day 3 and I really want to wear pants! 3 dresses down, 59 to go!

62 Dresses of mine, day 2!

Okey, day 2, dress 2!

This is a 90's silk dress from Bloomingdales that I bought at Beyond Retro for about 6 months ago. This is maybe the 4th time I'm wearing it, I think! It's so comfortable but i feel like a teeny tiny girl wearing it!

Oh my freakkin lord, this is only the 2nd day, and I'm longing for jeans with high heels and a suit jacket. But no, 2 dresses down, 60 to go!

Day 1, Dress 1!

Day 1 of the 62 dresses of mine - project, dress 1!

This is a vintage dress from the 40's that i bought in the boutique where i work, Beyond Retro! I remember when i took it out from the box to hang it in the store... i got goosebumps on my arms and prayed to the lord (even though i don't believe in him) that it'd fit me! And, woops! it did!

(And oh, this is the first time I'm wearing it)

The 62 dresses of mine project.
Well, ok here is the deal. I work in a vintage boutique, I love dresses, I've got dresses that I've never worn, or dresses that are too delicate to ever wear as a every-day garment. But, cut the crap! Nothing is too delicate, too fragile, too much or too less! I've got one dress for every occasion, and I'm going to wear them, every single one of them, as every-day garment. Enjoy. One dress for each day, for 62 days.
