I had the most wonderful birthday a woman can dream of. My birthday was on a Wednesday, my weekly day off, and I just thought I should have a cozy time alone, pick up my new glasses and go out to dinner with DH and son in the evening and there after see a movie with them. No, that was not what happened. On my birthday breakfast table was a gift card to a shopping tour at my favourite vintage repro shops in Copenhagen, and DH had taken the day off to be together with me. I became SO surprised and happy! At first I thought we should go to our neighbouring city, Lyngby, but then he pointed out the pictures he had glued to the card, and such dresses are not found in Lyngby, unfortunately.
We started picking up my glasses and then we drove to Mondo Kaos, where I found two dresses. We drank a cafe latte nearby, and then we drove to Copenhagen where my other favourite shop, Rock'a'Hula, is. Here I also found two nice dresses.
Here they are, all four hanging in a row:
Collectif Noelle Dress, perfect Christmas dress in red and green plaids:
And this is how I look wearing it:
I have added a dark green cardigan and a vintage garnet necklace.
20th Century Foxy dress, which I cannot find online, so you have do make do with me:
Hell Bunny Raspberry Polka Dot Dress, lovely dark red colour:
And this is me wearing it:
Right before my birthday I bought this on Daisy Dapper at half price:
It is named Elvy Dress, and this is me wearing it:
I also found this, which I fell completely in love with two years ago, but alas, it was too big. I searched high and low on the internet, but never found it in my size, and guess what? I found it at Rock'a'Hula in my size. I was SO happy and DH suggested giving it to me as a Christmas gift:
It is from Collectif and named Tartan.
So now I don't need any new dresses for a long time. A thousand thanks to DH for a wonderful birthday, with lots of dresses, latte, lunch and shopping to Copenhagen - it cannot get any better.
