Rose Festival

Photobucket
The main reason to to to The Rose Festival? Photobooths.

It was a hot-by-Portlander-standards day when I went with Team Jessup on Saturday, perfect for this fabulous little sundress I've been wanting to wear. I need one in every color, it fits so well.

Looks like you had a grand time! I've never seen so many vintage photo booths in one area before, they're priced well too (usually it's $3 to $4 per strip here).

I also love the fact that went on the big slide in a crinoline!

Rachel said...

All these photos are lovely! Carnivals have the best colors for photographs. Your dress is so pretty too!

You have a beautiful figure for that sundress!

There are a few skirts and dresses now in my wardrobe that could really do with an underskirt, what do you suggest looking for to buy? They are generally just below the knee length, but one is more just to the knee, I don't know where to start really..

One of my fav post ever by you! You look so fresh and lovely and I just adore a carnival with a train ride thrown in.

You look gorgeous in all of your photos. This post was so colorful and stunning! I used to live in Seattle for 10 years and visited Portland all of the time. I've moved far away from the Pacific Northwest and I miss being able to pop down there on a whim.

Revery Cloud said...

Such a beautiful day and it looks so fun. You chose the perfect color for your dress, it sets you apart so well from those bright carnival hues.

Love your dress! I've been itching to make a dress with a border pattern. And the picture of you going down the slide is awesome! You look like you are having entirely too much fun.
