100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (12.09.08)

11.30.08, originally uploaded by _venusinfurs_.
I’ve been a little bit obsessed lately with cream and white crochet lace. Wishing I had more of it in my wardrobe and home décor like lots of doilies and lace curtains. So last week when I saw this gorgeous crochet dress thrifted by venusinfurs I fell in love instantly. Since I missed doing my pick for last week I just had to post it this week.

I love how she kept the styling simple with just the little black boots and black slip underneath. I’m also loving her hair, the perfectly unkempt updo with the tiny headband and the little white shell.


Hmm… crochet, lace, doilies…
I wonder what all this could be reminding me of ?


All I know is I would love to thrift me a dress just like the one venusinfurs has and sail off into the sunset for an evening in a boat just like this. Oh, and I guess Lucas can come too ;)

I have been lusting after a 70's long white dress but all i seem to come across look like nightgowns. Something with crochet would be perfect.

Also dress, amazing too. Thank you for the long, delightful email. It made my day. Many hugs!

That crocheted dress is fabulous - and so is your wedding dress!
I love the chair in that top picture, too.

Look at your lovely wedding picture - just perfectly you! Gorgeousness!

I wish my ridiculous husband would break his "no face on the blog" ruling so I could put up some of our wedding pictures too.

Thanks!

Gah! Your wedding photo is so AMAZING! My wedding was the worse...ugly everything...nothing I loved. I'd love to do it over again with the things that I love now. Your little bouquet is my favorite.

Caroline said...

The boat photo is amazing (like setting off to the Undying Lands with Frodo and the Elves), your wedding pic is gorgeous, and I thrifted up three cream/white colored lace vintage items this last weekend!
