1930s picnic outfit

Photobucket

Today was out little Deco Picnic at the glorious Pittock Mansion, and it turned out so perfect I can't wait to show you pictures! But I think the outfit and picnic deserve separate posts ;) 

 Here is a dress I picked up at an antique shop (mis-dated, and priced how I like it), with The Gatsby Summer Afternoon in mind. The dress and I didn't make it there this year, and so today was the day it came off the hanger, and became part of an outfit! I starched it so it's like new, and added a brown slip underneath. Matching bakelite was a must ;) 

 And the hat from Poppycock Vintage topped it off perfectly! And one last thing, my hair was super sweet to me and did exactly what I wanted it to. I un-pinned it this morning, and it looked like a perfect 30s style, so a hairnet and lots of hairspray later made it last all day! Photobucket

Oh my golly, I love it! I purchased a 1930s eyelet dress this Summer and it is my new favorite thing. Yours is darling! Also, you really nailed it with the hair. I haven't much experience with hairnets, but I think it might be the trick to getting vintage dos to stay in my long hair, eh?

I love how you put together outfits. Like the yellow gloves to match the yellow flowers in your hat. I tend to 'overmatch' things too obviously, but you have such a cute way of doing it that is nice and subtle. Love it!

Yowza...what a dress, it makes me want to break out the sewing machine alas! I love the brown contrast lining...and that striking collar. So what did you pay for it? I'm sure it was mismarked as vintage 1950s. But you've dolled it up perfectly with the hat and gloves.

Wow--that dress is amazing! I love how fluffy the collar is. ;) How do you always manage to put together such adorable outfits? ;) Love the hat you paired with it too--I regularly drool over Poppycock Vintage's store (and love wearing the one I was sent earlier this year). :D
