Hearts, Red and Romance



"The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy."
-Yves Saint-Laurent
One always feels good in a classic red dress. No matter the shape or style, It makes every girl look good and feel special. And what's better than just another red dress from a chain store? A vintage one that's been passed through the family.

This gorgeous piece was once my mothers but has currently found a new home between mine and my sisters closet.

Since the Valentines feeling is still in the air, I paired the dress with a dreamy romantic hair-do and a heart necklace.

  33. Mumma's vintage, the best kind. That dress is just gorgeous, you're lucky, my mum got rid of all of her old clothes long ago. I hope some of the beautiful things I'm holding onto will be just as loved by Paige when's she's older.
