    Dress Like Me Feature

    A week or so ago DressLikeMe reached out to ask if they could feature me, and their lovely article just went live a few days ago. Definitely pop over and have a read! I didn’t select any of the photos or answer any questions, and I’m impressed by how in-depth and personal the article is! Thank you, DressLikeMe, for making me a feature! The outfits chosen to share are some of my favorites!

    Autumn in the Spring

    We are only halfway to spring but already I’m craving autumn-colored combinations. I had thought I would save this pretty dress from Rainbow Lady Vintage until the fall, when I could find a good leaf-strewn spot to pose with all of the browns and yellows and oranges of autumn, but today it called to me. As we stay mostly inside through the gloomy spring rains, I wanted something darker than my normal colorful florals. Something with the same weight as the moisture-laden skies and the drooping wet leaves. Luckily for me, this dress has been waiting in my closet for a few weeks just for a day like this. While…

    Tatyana Flower Cart Dress

    I have tried to wear this beautiful Tatyana dress several times. But every time I slipped it on, the little red straps originally at the shoulders just threw me off. The off-shoulder design is not very extreme, so the straps were completely uneccessary and, in my opinion, added a little too much fuss to the already scalloped and off-shoulder design. So for a while, I sat it in my “sell” pile. While it has many features I love, it’s also white (I am notorious for spilling coffee!) and the straps just didn’t work no matter how much I tried. Then this weekend I had the glaringly obvious idea: tuck the…

    Lilac Hour

    This dress is one of the most delicate I own. Made of sheer lilac-print fabric, it’s a 1950’s full-skirt shirtwaist dream. When I first got it I wasn’t really sure how to style it. I don’t own much purple (this and one other dress, in fact) even though it used to be my favorite color, and the delicate colors are hard for me to coordinate. While I would love to wear some green shoes to match the greenery, and pair it with green gloves and a green hat, I don’t really have anything but the gloves. When I wore it before, I decided to wear my teal and white Ruby…

    The Vintage Fashion Challenge

    Over on Instagram I’m participating in The Vintage Fashion Challenge. It’s a month-long challenge wherein each day has a specific “challenge” within a theme. The first week was “getting to know you” and each day was a different aspect of life to share. This week is color week! I especially love color week, as it sets me up to explore all the colors in my closet and perhaps wear things I don’t normally reach for. And while I’ve worn this skirt on the blog before, I haven’t really thought to pair it with this top, and in general I have found this top to be harder to style than I…
