|Dress: Vintage Thrifted, Belt: Thrifted, Same shoes|
These are the shoes that I found on the same trip that I found my Michael Kors clogs. They are practically new and absolutely FABULOUS!!!! Oh the goodies! They're out there!
The picture of me taken in the blue dress is from today. I piddled around so much morning that I had zero time to do anything to my hair. It was still hanging wet when I yanked it all back into a bun, threw on some make up. I decided to put on a pair of honking big hoops to distract from the hair and actually really liked it for the whole day. This is a bit of a "go to" emergency look!
The first dress is probably the oldest thing I own. It was another find with the shoes and I LOVE it! It hung on the dress form in my room for a week before I decided to wear it. I toyed with the idea of hemming it up some (and still may), but there is a part of me that loves the dress so much, I almost feel like I'm desecrating it! Sometimes it just seems like the tempation is always there to shorten something to make it more modern. I certainly have nothing against going that route, I just don't want that to be a knee jerk reaction of mine to every vintage dress or skirt I get. I actually really like the midi length, it's soooooo feminine. A longer skirt is more bohemian feeling to me. A shorter skirt to the knee or slightly higher feels very chic. This midi length just feels girly........like, "Feel free to hold the door open for me, because I'm a LADY....(smiling demurely)" I wonder if the previous owner felt as fabulous as I do wearing it?
