Another Friday has come and Germany is blessed with lovely sunny and warm spring weather, the perfect occasion to take outdoor photos of my new pieces. Furthermore it's a Friday full of vintage here on Bad Taste Toast!
I won this beautiful SoLovesVintage tulip dress over at The Magpie Girl some weeks ago. SoLovesVintage is a wonderful UK online shop with a wide range of everything a vintage lover's heart craves for. I especially love their collection of dresses, so pretty and glamorous and perfect for girls with some curves like it was the concept of ideal beauty in the 50s and 60s!
I won the giveaway with a Polyvore set I created to show how I would style the dress (I planned to wear it when visiting my boyfriend on a trip to Warsaw in summer), but I couldn't wait to wear it and for the photos I styled it similar to how it was planned.

I tend to be a bit sceptic about ordering vintage clothing online because, despite the measurements, you never know how the item will fit to your body. I was so glad when I first tried on the dress and it fit perfectly! Really perfect length, perfect fit, lucky me! Although it's made of wool it still wasn't too warm, actually I felt great wearing it for the photos and to run some errands afterwards. Maybe it's silly, but vintage pieces always make me feel special because they are so unique and with the tulip shape underlining my curves I even felt a little bit like Dita, only more casual ;)
I also won a giveaway of Amy Flying A Kite in January, where I was allowed to pick one piece from the Rack and Sack Vintage Online Shop. Their specialties are beautiful vintage accessories and jewelry, like statement necklaces, cocktail rings, glamourous purses etc.
When browsing their shop I immediately fell in love with the "Rose Garden" bracelet at first sight. It's classic, golden, playful, girly and a tad kitschy, so it was the perfect choice for me.
I had been waiting for a good occasion to wear it out since January, but I didn't want to wear it in a "normal" outfit as it is too special for that. With the chic vintage dress the bracelet's time had finally come today and as the other accessories were rather simple, the bracelet could totally come into its own.
You can show some love for both of the wonderful vintage shops here:

I would like to say THANK YOU again to both shops for letting me win their pretty items! :)
Also a big THANK YOU to Lilith's Fashion Blog! She featured me in a little interview, you can see it here.
Happy Friday to everyone!
