Breakfast for one

Photobucket
Last thursday I turned the ripe old age of 22 (don't worry, they're putting me in a home soon), and just happened to have my first photoshoot scheduled with the lovely Lara Blair. She contacted me a few weeks ago wanting to do some fun vintage style shoots, and as the weather improves, I'm sure you'll see many more!

These were taken at Je t'aime bakery, a place I frequent for soup and pastries. At the recent expo I found this amazing amazing 1940s bird hat, and a belt to match! I found them at the same vendor, so maybe the woman who owned them in the 40s wore them together too :)

Oh and happy birthday for last week!

That sweater dress is too fabulous, right down to the color. I am seriously deprived, I have wanted one like this forever! I can see it as a foundation for so many things.

Kelly said...

Love everything about it. Love the colors, and that HAT! Sooooo pretty.

Sara Shoemaker said...

this belongs in a magazine. I love everything about it-including that train case! I'm obsessed with train cases :) You look amazing my dear.

Miss Caitlin Elizabeth said...

That hat is awesome! Was it originally a hat, or something else that can be turned into hat?

Rebeccak said...

Such stunning photos! What a way to celebrate 22 - Happy birthday!!

I'd love some close ups of that hat - it looks too exciting not to see it in more detail!

Lauryn said...

Wow - stunning as usual. You really know how to put together an outfit. Happy belated birthday and thanks for all the great posts! (BTW you have made me feel slightly old - I am turning 40 this year - eek, but thanks to vintage glamour and a good hairdo hopefully I don't look it yet!)

So what about the dress, sweater girl?Where did that come from?

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

I can't believe you're only 22!!! I thought you were closer to my age but only a couple years younger. man I'm old. Did you get married at 18 or 19 or so? I was 20 when I married. I love young marriages. Anyway these are gorgeous shots of you and I applaud your photographer a lot. Happy birthday to you!

Katherine Michael said...

Gosh, you are pretty! Green is a great color on you!

Amber Blue Bird said...

Diva said...

Twenty two... The memories rush through my mind! :) I have to say you should ask that this photographer take more pictures of you. You look absolutely amazing! Laura B seems to have captured not only the glamour that is you, but also your charm and wit.

A very happy bday to you - Solanah!

DJ Twisted Sister said...

You have a great complexion and are fabulously photogenic. Love the vintage look, you so make it work...

Solanah said...

Betty2Tone, it's a hat from the 1940s

MB I got it at Urban Eccentric Vintage http://www.etsy.com/shop/urbaneccentric

Victoria, we got married at 20 too!

Sydney said...

Gabby said...

These pictures are so inspiring. You look like are actually in the 1940s. I have never seen such beautiful photography before in my life. Cudos to the talented photographer, Lara Blair.
