New favorite old dress.


I'm in love with this dress, just got it Friday and wore it today for work. Mr. Beaumont the spider goes perfectly with it, but I did have trouble finding a hat so I just clipped an old bowtie in my hair instead. Tomorrow I'm going with my mother to Portland for a hair appointment (hers not mine) and I'm hoping it wont be pouring down rain like it was yesterday when we were at an antique mall. I'm done with the rain and the cold, wet stockings are not preferable.
I found out the other day that a new dance studio just opened up in town that has swing dancing every Saturday. I meant to go last night, but lost track of time, plus going alone is not nearly as fun as going with friends. Hey friends, lets go swing dancing.

That dress is such a fabulous color! It reminds me of one of the dresses Drew B. wears in Grey Gardens. Don't know if you're seen the movie, but might be worth it just for that dress! :o)

I love the look! The dress is so cute, and I think the "hair bow" turned out to be a great touch.
