In case you had any doubts about whether or not vintage dress fairies actually do exist, I’m here to tell you that they do! They really do! In fact, I have a very sweet one named Hillary to thank for sending me this perfect little black sun dress, which arrived along with a gorgeous peachy slip and a few other wonderful cooler weather dresses currently awaiting fall/winter.
She thrifted them all ten years ago and when she came across them in storage she thought of me. How completely kind and generous is that?! Thank you so much Hillary!
Vintage Stetson hat, newly thrifted, $6, Angel's Attic. I'm thinking this might be my go to hat come fall.
I looove the back of this dress. Actually I love the front too, with the pin tucks and ruffles. It’s perfectly simple, yet those subtle details make it really special. I wore it to celebrate the much longed for heat wave we’re finally having.
It's been a little depressing around here weather wise folks, cool foggy days with the sun not poking through until around noon and then temperatures barely cracking the low 80’s, only to dip back down again for cold evenings. Over a month straight of this! Not. Normal. As if summer decided not to show up at all this year... until now! It actually got HOT, I even had to lose the wool hat, but the easy breezy dress was just perfect :)
I’m telling you, after all the cold foggy days this summer, it was so exciting to go out in the morning and see the sun shining and feel WARMTH. In fact, it was almost giant double rainbow exciting… almost ;)
