OOTD - going vintage in a midi-skirt

In my "Predicted Trends for 2011" post, I talked about midi-skirts - calf length, lady like skirts which were a bit hit on the catwalks. I thought I'd quickly show you my effort at this trend with my vintage dress!

I went to see Russell Howard last night in Winchester and this is what I wore:

Excuse the photo - I was twirling whirling round!

What I wore - Vintage 80s dress - from my mum's wardrobe! On my mum this was floor length, but on 5 foot 9 me it was a great way to try the midi-skirt fashion. I paired it with Collection 2000 Cherry Bomb red lipstick (see my review tomorrow morning) to really vintage-up the look and my suede peep-toe flats from New Look.

My verdict - I loved wearing the midi-skirt. It made me feel very feminine and classy. I think I looked smart but in a dressed-down, understated way. I also love that my mum's dress fitted me perfectly. My top tip - go raid some vintage wardrobes, charity shops or car boot sales for this trend girls. The oldies are the besties! Plus I think my kitty cat Button liked it... (couldn't resist showing you my cat!)

    I love vintage dresses, I used to be always in the charity shops, but since I moved they aren't as many good finds where I am now.
    I love the cute kitty! :)
