First snow





There's something so fresh about wearing a soft cotton dress in the middle of winter. I'm getting a bit tired of winter clothes and decided to wear a 40s summer wrap dress my aunt gave me. It's just so pretty I couldn't wait to wear it. And after watching The Edge of Love a while ago the image of Keira Knightley in a light 40s dress and heavy rubber boots stuck in my mind. It inspired me to actually buy a pair of rainboots, something practical in the rainy part of the country.

On my way to work I met Twila Jean and her kiddies for a sled ride down the sidewalk. They are so cute, and didn't care at all that most of the snow had melted into sludge :)

I'm so envious...was really hoping for snow here in Seattle! And I love that spring dress; it makes me wish for happier weather.

That's so wonderful! I think it's too cold for me to where a summer dress right now. You're definitely brave...haha...And your wellies are so cute! I love the tweed on them!

Happy New Year!

Oh, your outfit also reminds me lots of this: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Dz4ldCnk7DI/SxW3Qd9mS3I/AAAAAAAADsA/vX8ALPhwC2Y/s1600/lyingdown.jpg

Cute! I love the mix!

I hate to admit that I have been forced to wear my snow boots with my cute dresses. I only wish that I could find a cuter pair!

Q's Daydream, I loooooove those pictures, thanks for reminding me of them!
And I haven't shown how to do pin curls, but Strawberry Koi did a great tutorial: http://strawberrykoi.blogspot.com/2009/03/vintage-hair-pin-curls-for-beginner.html

I do mine is three layers, alternating directions of the curl so it makes I kind of wave.

Twila, I was so hoping it would be us until I actually watched it. Lets just pretend they're not awful ;)

Solanah said...

Sorella, I just changed it around Christmas, I'm liking it better :)

Angel said...

It was so much fun to see the snow while I was there. Your little outfit is darling. I tried to come by the shop yesterday but it was closed. I'm so bummed that I missed out this time around. I wanted to find a neat little hat to wear on NYE. I did get to go to some cool vintage shops in Portland, if you haven't been yet you should check out Rad Summer, I found a amazing coat and dress there.
