I have had my eye on a vintage Vuokko dress at the local self-service flea market for a while now. (There are times when you see the same stuff up for sale weeks and weeks in a row.) The price tag (15 e) seemed a bit much, especially because I wasn't entirely sure about the dress in the first place. Yes, it is vintage Vuokko, yes, the colour (pale peach) is fantastic. But I kept looking at the sheer amount of fabric (there is a lot, and the cut is tent-like) and the size tag (extra small, for all this volume??), and well, let's face it, I tend to associate Vuokko with my mother's maternity wear from the 1970s. Anyway, I stopped by at the flea market today and there was a -50% tag on the dress. I took my chances with all the volume, the strange shape, for 7,50 e. Add a belt, and oh deary me, how great is this dress?
I also found these two miniature framed pictures, and the candle rosettes (or whatever they are called in English) below.
