Austin Powers Reincarnate

Dress: Vintage

This is my Austin Powers dress. I swear if his get up was turned into a dress this would be it. It's one of my favorite vintage finds. I mean blue velvet and lace, how could you go wrong with that? I was very sleepy when I took these photos this morning because I had to get up super early to take them so don't mind my expression.

And I have a question for all of you. My photobucket account has reached it's limit and I really don't want to pay the $25 a year for an unlimited bandwidth account. Which  other site would you suggest? I can tell the quality of my photographs is so but better when I copy the HTML code from photobucket instead of uploading them straight from my computer (as you can tell today I uploaded them from my computer). So which other sight can I use that doesn't cost money, or if it does that's cheaper?

very austin powers, indeed - but i love it.

buying the unlimited account might be worth it. $25 is pretty standard.

oh my, these are such pretty photos, and that dress is just darling.

Oh my glory, you've got such wonderful, quirky style. I love this look with the sheer knee highs! I've got to get me a pair (where'd you get yrs, btw?).

amanda said...

i love this dress!!!!!!! so funny but very cute on you. and i use flickr too and pay the fee. it's just nice to know that i don't have to worry about running out of room and that i get really good quality images to upload on my blog. it does stink to pay to store my own photos but the alternative is lame quality or running out of storage space!

Rebecca said...

Great blog!
This is definitely an Austin Powers dress, such a lovely shade of blue.

Yikes, wish I could help with the photo issue... I use my iPhone (not a camera) and Wordpress (not blogspot). So I am far removed...

Also, this dress is like a freaking dream come true. And ironic, you and I in thrifted blue dresses. Ah, geez.

i pay $25 a year for an unlimited flickr account, and it's SO much better than photobucket. and so worth the price, in my opinion.

i LOVE that blue dress on you, it's amazing!! i love how everything around you is SO neutral and then there's that pop of blue! love it. :)

Sara Lynn said...

I didn't know that you used photobucket, I think that I might have to try that.

I love your dress! lol Austin Powers rocks too :)

ANN said...

I use tinypic.com and imageshack.us, but they don't store your photos in albums like Photobucket does. Maybe Flickr? I love your dress and how the lace contrasts the blue velvet!

The Daily Fashionista said...

I used flickr and then finally decided to pay the extra to use the account unlimited. I felt it was a good use of money, because it made uploading and editing so much easier.

And OMG, could that dress be any cooler!!! It's just frickin' perfect.

Trop Rouge said...

ahaha Yes it is Austin Powers!
try Tiny pic? I pay for the stupid photthingyy and it is super annoying. although I only do my month so it's 2 bucks a month

wardrobeexperience said...

i never liked velvet too much... bit this dress looks so stunning on you!

avalonne summers said...

You are so cute and this is too true, Austin Powers!!! Where did you take these photos? Looks like a desert or something? I think it's worth paying 25 bucks a year for the Pro Account. It sucks that the free account only has limited bandwidth, but pro is worth it :) Hope you figure out what you want!

Lisa said...

I love that dress, so pretty!
