Pleated dress

I'm very happy. I've been searching for a pleated dress for a long time and I finally found the perfect one. I've looked in vintage stores, because pleated dresses are so vintage and I wanted one of those from the first half of the eighties or last seventies...just like some of the ones my mum used to have and never kept :(...I love to see all those old pics of her and her friends wearing those dresses.
But I never found the dress...until last week. And surprisingly it wasn't in a vintage store, but in Mango outlet. And just for 11 euros!!! It was great, I didn't expect to find such a thing in that store.

Because it looks sooooo vintage, don't you think? I love pleated dresses, and this one looks great combined with the right complements.

I love the pattern...

Now it desperately needs a belt, which will be my next purchase. I haven't found one that looks good with the dress yet.

PS. Sorry for being out, my computer problem was worst than I thought but everything seems okay now, so I'm happy for that too. Thank you for your nice comments!

Beautiful - great find! Will look so cute this fall/winter too, with tights and a long coat or cardi :)
