La-dee-da.




Hmmmm, my brain seems to have gone out for the night, so I don't really have much to say, other than here's my outfit today :)

Now off to watch 30 Rock, eat some chocolate truffles, and make a skirt for my imaginary spring weather.

Stunning dress and I love your pin! I can't wait until our new Buffalo Exchange has had time to stock up well on vintage.

There is nothing wrong with pretending that it's spring! I pretend to the extent that I wear flip flops outside just to try to coax the sun out of his hidey-hole!!I love Betty the bird!

You look lovely! I especially love the hat and Betty.

You know, I've always found that hats look awful on me, minus ridiculous winter hats. Do vintage hats like these tend to flatter all face and head types?

Francy said...

I love this look! You look stunning.

I love your blog and your style! Finally, someone who is my exact age and has similar interests!

It's hard to find interesting girls who aren't catty or jealous in Chicago(or maybe it's just my tomboy-ish ways).

Check out this lovely store we have in the chi: http://www.silvermoonvintage.com/

And look at this lovely frock I'm crushing on:

I really like your mustard-colored dress. I am looking for a pattern
to make a dress like that for my
18-yr-old daughter, whose figure is similar to yours. If you have any info I would appreciate it.
