Farewell Cambridge

My time at Cambridge has drawn to a close (three weeks fly when you're abroad, no?) and I'm moving on to Paris. I really enjoyed Cambridge and taking things a bit slow while I was there: the people were friendly and the buildings were pretty. Here are a few more tourist-y shots from around town. the clothes horse, personal style, fashion, cambridge, blue dress, vintage dress, king's college, cathedral, t-strap shoes, redhead, braid, red lipstick, retro, vintage

I wore this dress while I was in London and styled it exactly the same! I actually have other ways I could wear this packed in my suitcase and ready in my mind, but I felt like repeating it instead. It's such a lovely dress that it really doesn't need extra embellishment; perhaps just a little ribbon bow tie at the neck? Anyway, I've been suggested numerous good vintage shops in Paris so hopefully more discoveries like this dress will be in my possession soon!the clothes horse, personal style, fashion, cambridge, blue dress, vintage dress, king's college, cathedral, t-strap shoes, redhead, braid, red lipstick, retro, vintage

  7. I love Cambridge, I was there on the weekend and aside from all the tourists in 'University of Cambridge' hoodies it's beautiful. Enjoying walks along the Backs, watching the punting parties. And the street style!

  8. Gorgeous! That shade of blue is fabulous with your hair, and those shoes are what come to my mind when I think "Cambridge chic".

  9. Lovely photos! The dress is just darling; I like all of the ruffle details with the strips! Super chic. Yay for vintage finds!

    I ADORE the picture you took of the people on the boat. It's utter perfection. Have a fabulous time in Paris!

  10. I'm so jealous of your huge amounts of red hair! My mom has red hair and I always wanted red hair, too. Also I cut all my hair off last September so short that now it's only to my shoulders. Anyway....
    I love the pics of Cambridge. So wonderfully medieval. Have fun in Paris!

    Also--that bird ring is amazing!

  11. Those shoes are so versatile, and they must be so much more comfortable than they look.

    I can't wait to read all about your Paris vintage shopping. I have London vintage down to a science, but I won't get my first crack at Paris until next year.

  19. Bon voyage! When I lived in Paris a few years ago (eek! I'm getting old) there was a crazy and mammoth second hand shop at Barbes-Rocheouart. Can't remember what it was called but I'm sure someone in Paris will know it...

  20. oooh when were you in Cambridge! (I live there by the way :D ) I would have told you were to find this cute little shop that sells vintage clothes...oh well, it looks like you had a great time anyway. I hope you enjoy paris!

  22. What a coincidence - I'm wearing a Cambridge t-shirt today!

    Anyways, your dress is beautiful. The blue is such a good color on you!

  23. Glad you enjoyed Cambridge. It's been nice to see your take on it, it was a big part of my youth.

    I have to know though, what was your luggage allowance? You seem to have the most endless travelling wardrobe!

  31. I doubt I've ever commented here, but I feel as if I must do so now..! I'm pretty sure I saw this dress on etsy, but didn't think much of it... But you look so absolutely gorgeous in it! Generally speaking, you're one of the prettiest girls I've ever seen, and it definitely shows in these pictures. I check your blog every day but it's my first time commenting, so forgive me if it sounds a bit awkward..!

  36. Like I said before, this dress was made for you. Your hair really makes all the lovely details of this dress come out. I am so glad it found a nice home with you :)

    I hope you find some amazing vintage treasures in Paris!

  37. I'm glad you enjoyed Cambridge. I've always wanted to go there myself. You will LOVE Paris. It really is amazing. I was there a few weeks ago. I didn't want to leave.

  38. Hello Rebecca! I think you look lovely here and the dress is fantastic on you. HOWEVER. I feel like I have to tell you... I think that that is the wrong belt for the dress. I would have gone for a simple skinny belt instead of this one; the shape messes with the clean lines of the dress. All the same, I love your blog and your style!

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Anonymous, I see what you mean, but I hesitate to categorize choices as right/wrong. I think a skinny belt could look good (even better in some eyes), but I actually tried it with a skinny belt and I prefer the larger one with it; the dress even came with a skinny belt in matching fabric. I think we just have a difference of opinion on this & unfortunately for everyone: I'm dressing as suits my personal tastes (although I do intend to wear it with the matching belt eventually). :)

  40. Maybe you already saw this, but I just saw the blue dress pic on nymag in the street style slide show. Nice! slideshow
