I've been on a retro kick lately. Really drawn to clothing and furniture from the mid-century. Over the weekend, m and I were in a thrift store and scored an awesome radio in really good working condition. I'll have to post a photo of it to share.

Today, I stumbled across this site and now I wish I had known about it before my wedding. I would love to have had a dress like this. (though to be fair, I wasn't on a retro kick back when I was getting married.)

There's so much to love from her Autumn-Winter 2007/2008 show, I probably would want to have 5 or 6 different weddings to get to wear all the different dresses I love. It doesn't work like that though, does it?

I remember after the wedding, I'd want to turn to m and say: you know, the next time we do this we should remember to....

Ha! Silly jean.

I think it could be argued that your wedding dress *was* retro. Perhaps a different decade of retro (I know how you like to vary your wardrobe by decades.) I hear what you're saying, it's not the retro you're focused on now....but I think your dress was very 20's or 30's elegant glamour girls sort of a style. Definitely timeless, but that sort of counteracts the retro vibe.

Yes, I do believe you are correct.

I had forgotten about my penchant for arranging my wardrobe by decades. Thanks for reminding me of that. I'll have to reorganise my closet now.
