Demure Pin-Up

PICT0002cas

This dress I bought second hand last year amuses me to no end. The frills on the shoulders make it look like some sort of an apron - it's so silly! I've been pondering getting rid of the frills, but decided that I love it this way, so they're staying!

How to get a dress wrinkled in no time?
Have your affectionate cat sit on your lap for 15 minutes, works every time! :)

It seems like I'm not only demure but tired as well, I sit down and prompty fall asleep.

Cute dress and I like how you matched it with red accessories! I recently adopted a kitten, so I know the joy of having a cat! :)

It does, I'm always looking out for dresses cut similarly.

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, yep, I did it! I've never done a self-portrait-caricature before, but I really enjoyed it. :)

Kirstin said...

You look amazing in yellow! I love all the wonderful details you have added!

Madeline Quaint said...

I adore my cat, so I don't mind if she sleeps on my lap. Or on a heap of freshly laundered clothes. :D

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, Kirstin! This is actually my only yellow item... Maybe I should look out for more. :)

I'm so flattered that you wrote this, as you're a huge vintage-inspired style-icon of mine. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! I got addicted to your gossip page, you've got a great sense of style both clothing- and writing-wise! :)

Very pretty dress. I love the pop of red and the little flowers in your hair. And I am so jealous of your beautiful long red hair.
My little dog always wrinkles my outfits too. She just loves to snuggle.

jos xx said...

i used to hate yellow...however this summer, it was so fashionable, i wanted to colour my wardrobe with only it! it's such a positive colour! for example, i have a dress which is similar to yours however the fringes are on the skirt because it's a racer back kind of dress. i understand puurfectly what you said about the cat. mine keeps doing that all the time!

I LOVE your illustration post below!! Ive always wanted to try this but I dont have a pen or tablet for drawing on photoshop. :( xo

Elien said...

Pretty outfit, and i really like your hair colour (it's kinda like mine ;) )

Madeline Quaint said...

Yeah, this is my only yellow dress too - I loved the cut too much to care about the colour, but then I grew to like it. I must get some mustard stuff for the autumn! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, Alexandra!

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks, Lucija!

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, darling! :)
It's definitely worth getting a tablet, even cheap ones are great to play with (like mine:).

Madeline Quaint said...

Laurel said...

I love how you've added a pop of color to this pale dress. I love redheads who wear red, too!

Madeline Quaint said...

Now you mention paleness, I actually intended to dye this dress blue, but then never got around to it... And got used to the yellow. :)

Gabrielle Antonov said...

Love this dress! So stunning

Ladyofashion said...

I love the frills, I know what you mean though, & have a similar dress that I just made the straps straight. But, this is a lovely yellow colour.

Feathers & Freckles said...

I love this dress, and the frills are beautiful!! Don't get rid of them!

I am also excited to have found another redheaded blogger! Love your bangs, if my hair was straight I'd definitely cut some.
