A Dress-cue Project

I still have to grab pictures of my dress from last weekend’s sewing retreat, but since we’re on the sewing subject, I thought it would be a good time to share a dress rescue project from earlier this summer. I found this dress at Modern Millie (as usual) and although it was pretty something was…

California Trip – Part 2

This post has been sitting in my drafts since December, and the events happened even longer ago than that, but since it is late March and just keeps snowing, I think it seems as good a time as any to recap the second leg of our California honeymoon trip – a visit to Disneyland! We…

Love Letters

At the beginning of February, one of the vintage sellers I follow posted a garment badly in need of a rescue. Now, I’m not usually one to want to alter vintage clothing – if it survived this long, I shouldn’t be the person to change it! But I do make an exception for things that…

California Trip – Part 1

It’s well and truly November, cold and dark and leafless outside, so it seemed like now was as good a time as any to catch up with some pictures of our visit to sunny California back in (yikes) May. Doug and I made the trip for our honeymoon, and got a chance to do lots…

On The Dot

This large blue felt hat is the second hat I brought back from my Busia’s collection when I visited California this spring. (See the other hat here) Navy is one of those colors I keep accidentally acquiring and then I don’t have the first idea what to wear it with, so fortunately I already had…

Summer Sheer

When we were in California for our honeymoon, we spent a couple nights with my extended family. The conversation turned, as it often does, to family memories, and my aunt suggested that I might have a look at a few hats she had stashed away that were her mother’s — my Busia’s. (A note —…

Spring Floral

This is the last set of pictures I have from before the wedding, so I promise I’ll be following up with more wedding and honeymoon photos next! And to be honest, I was doubting whether or not to share these at all, since I wasn’t entirely happy with how they turned out. This ensemble is…

The Tale of a Hat

This winter, I struck up an instagram friendship with another wonderful lady in the vintage community (Eliza, aka @vintagerosegirl) over our shared love of hats. We discussed preferred styles, hats that we would buy if they weren’t so expensive, and sent each other links to excellent hats that we’d seen. Now, Eliza had been eyeing…

Slated for Success

I think I’ve mentioned before that the ladies over at Modern Millie are wonderful but also somewhat evil. They know my size, what I styles I gravitate towards, and how to get in touch with me, so sometimes when they get something in that has my name all over it they’ll let me know and…

Shocking Pink

Here I thought I’d be needing to apologize for unseasonal posts as I’m still catching up on sharing pictures from March, but unfortunately for me the weather (and accordingly, my outfit choices) hasn’t changed much! The main difference is that there are now some leaves on the trees to get in the way of the…
