In which I wear a 70s dress on a lovely beach

I thought I'd do another outfit post at the last ones have had a little bit of interest. Besides which the weather is beautifully sunny now so it makes me want to go and prance about outdoors. Actually as I was posing it got suddenly dramatically hotter and I had to go run home to change out of something with long sleeves.
This dress belonged to my mum when she was a teenager in the 70s which makes it not only vintage but also family history. You cant tell in the picture but it has 4 long purple tassles that hang down from the front. It is a little worn and so a lot of the shape seems to have disappeared like the elastic at the ends of the sleeves is dead. It would look silly without a belt. I often refer to it as my 'date dress' because it makes me feel sophisticated far more than a sexy black dress does and I love wearing it with my gold heels and my other item of my mums old clothing I love -a 70s velvet jacket.
Anyhow enough with the talking. Here are some pictures:
