A New Vintage Dress

Original source here

I found the below dress (ca. 1960s) at a flea market in Rome. I wasn't looking for anything and wasn't even planning on going to the flea market. Yet the moment I laid eyes on it, I knew it was there for me! I guess that's when something beautiful appears in your life.... when you least expect it! 

Ho trovato questo vestito vintage anni '60 al mercatino dell'usato a Roma. Non cercavo niente di particolare quel giorno e neanche avevo pianificato di andare a questo mercatino. Eppure quando ho visto il vestito, sapevo che era mio. E' così che la vita ti mette davanti una cosa bellissima...chi non cerca, trova! 

Me with my mama. She's my best 'vintage' accessory!!! Don't worry, she approves this label! <3
Mia mamma è il mio accessorio 'vintage' preferito in assoluto!!! ;))
Isn't the print cute? There's a girl on a yacht, baskets, binoculars... a very summery motif!

So, what is something you found unexpectedly, that had your name written all over it?? It could be an object, food, a job or even a person! :)
Allora, qual'è una cosa che avete trovato, inaspettatamente, che il destino vi ha portato?? Potrebbe essere un oggetto, cibo, lavoro oppure anche una persona! ;)

Buon Weekend~

  2. Wow! I've found your wonderful blog through your very kind comment and I'm glad I did! I've just been over a bunch of your posts and I'll be back to look some more! Beautiful, beautiful dress!
    I found several years ago my first treadle sewing machine from 1918 at an antique fair and not only did it have my name all over it it was calling to me. It was a piece of a puzzle that was missing in my life and I look back now and wonder how I ever lived without it! I have a post about it on my blog if you'd like to see her!
    Great post and I'll be back again real soon!
