    Golden Hour || Lindy Bop, Oxford Heels, and a Vintage Camera

    I wore this dress on the first day of All Dress April, but these photos are from exactly one month ago when I was on a little weekend holiday with my mom. We had just gotten dressed to go out for dinner when I saw¬† how beautiful the light was coming over the ocean, and I had to take photos. I had never taken “golden hour” photos before. Where I live, it’s a bit difficult to capture the golden evening light as most places in town are overshadowed by trees that block out the evening sun. Evening photos around my home are usually shadowed and dim, and lacking that beautiful…

    The Lady In Red || All Dress April

    As I mentioned briefly in my last post, this month I am participating in All Dress April, a fun little challenge someone started a few years ago. Much like Dressember, which I have done twice in the past, it’s a way to get out of a rut and wear dresses or skirts all month and forgo pants, yoga pants, jeans, whatever rut you’re in. While I and many others in the vintage community regularly wear dresses and skirts and rarely wear pants, I must admit I still need a challenge from time to time.

    Yellow is the Happiest Color || All Dress April

    Every once in a while, I happen upon a dress or outfit that is so special I will do almost anything in order to get photos. This dress is one such outfit. I received it (along with several other dresses!) just in time to wear for the beginning of All Dress April — in which people try to wear a dress or skirt every day in April — and I knew I wanted it to be my first blog post for the aforementioned occasion. But, while the outfit came together easily, I nearly gave up on a photoshoot.

    Starlight in the Daytime | Feat We Love Colors and Grace Karin

    As if to make up for the fact that last week’s Grace Karin dress photoshoot didn’t go as planned at all, this week’s photoshoot went exactly as I had hoped! I have been eyeing this particular spot for quite some time — perhaps months — but I’ve never quite felt brave enough to stop when the light is good. The reason being, it’s a building right on the corner of a VERY busy 4-way-stop, and at rush hour a line of cars snakes up the hill and there is no break to the stream. Even more busy than the sidewalk where I stopped to take photos with the trees, and…

    Dolly and Dotty

    Every so often, I come across a dress that puts me in a certain kind of mood. That mood is “can conquer the world, will conquer the world.” And this? This is a dress that puts me in just such a mood! I first came across Dolly and Dotty via Miss Amy May’s blog, and I was immediately drawn in by how pretty and feminine all of their frocks are. If you’ve been following my blog for long, you’ll know I love a good floral and a full skirt, so it was a no-brainer that this gorgeous floral frock with its super full skirt would be an instant heart-eyes moment…
