The Vintage dresses first outing (and it went to a Burger restaurant!)

Tonight we went out with two friends to the new 'Gourmet Burger Kitchen' in Cardiff. It wouldn't usually be my thing as I'm not a big burger eater but 'my god' the burgers were amazing, by far the best I have ever eaten. I had the Camembert and Cranberry Chicken Burger and it tasted so good. The chicken was a full breast covered in a light breadcrumb batter. The Other Half had a Barbecue Aberdeen Angus Burger with an extra fried egg on it and he polished it off rather rapidly. Biz and Chris shared their burgers and had one burger the same as mine and then a spicy mexican one with a funny name which they said was so hot they 'couldn't feel their face' lol!! But they still ate it all. The prices are expensive considering it is only for the burger and you have to order any chips or sides at an extra cost. Luckily we had vouchers for 2 Burgers and 1 Fries for £10 so that was good. We ordered a second chips but unfortunately we never received them, even after we asked where they were. But the lady serving apologized at the end and gave me a refund for them. So I'd give the food a 9 out of 10 and the service a 7 out of 10. Here are some fun pics we took of the burgers but my other half didn't let me take one of him!

Ok so on to the outfit. As you can see from my burger pic and the title of this blog I wore my 1940's vintage dress I bought last week. Sorry for the multitude of photos I just couldn't decided which shot was best so thought 'bugger it' and uploaded a few. I went all out vintage inspired for this outfit. I was thinking 1940's dinner dance date outfit.
I paired the dress with a long suit jacket that was my mothers and a wrap around leather waist belt that came with another dress from Matalan. It helped give me a bit more shape.

I accessorized with a Chanel inspired bag that was a gift from my aunt, which I love!
A vintage westie brooch that was also my mothers on my jackets lapel.
Vintage looking floral print tights and black Mary Jane shoes both from TKMaxx (can't remember the brand of either)
And finally my cute little white lace fingerless gloves from Claire's Accessories
I also had on a thin black bow hair band and a flat white gold necklace.

What do you think, did I get the vintage look (with a little modern hint here and there) right?

Let's see what tomorrow brings (think I might be taking my mum to the vintage shop I found, see old post here)
