OK I'm gonna let you in on a secret about me: when I was younger I used to be a huge Ricky Martin fan (yes, Ricky 'Livin'-La-Vida-Loca' Martin) I had his album on repeat and made up dance routines to all his tracks (even the slow ones). I even wore a Ricky Martin T-shirt, which now in hindsight wish I didn't throw away! (how cool would that be now?). Hell even right now I've decided to play a bit of him after conjuring up today's post title, and it's instantly taken me back to the summer of 99.
On Wednesday I finally got to debut my new vintage dress that I picked up from the last vintage fair at Monica's. It's quite the interesting thing that happened with this dress, which was destined to be with me from the beginning. I happened to follow a page on Facebook which sold the most beautiful vintage dresses a lovely company called 'Paper Petticoats'.
After looking through their range of beautiful dresses (bear in mind this was all the way back to April), this yellow floral dress stood out to me among the bunch and it was love at first sight. I commented that I loved it and I simply forgot all about it. Then months went by and I attended Monica's Vintage Fair and had a look around at what the stalls had on offer. One particularly beautifully presented stall stood out to me- their clothing organised into the vintage eras- 50's, 60's so forth- and this beautiful yellow dress sung to me from the rack. What I didn't realise til I got home that night was that this was the same exact dress!
Cosmic dress significance? I don't know but I am a firm believer that if things are meant to be then they will make their way to you. I am so extremely pleased with this dress as I don't have anything quite like it in my vintage dress collection.
I really believe wearing yellow has some magical quality as it instantly cheers you up and makes you feel happy and fuzzy, so wear yellow my lovelies and smile more this summer!
