Royally Attired

Well, enough real world for now, let’s talk about something near and dear to many ladies’ hearts: shoes! I’ve been waiting rather impatiently for the last month (and impatiently before that, too) for new shoes to arrive in the mail. Now, of course, shoes don’t actually take a month to arrive in the mail, but…

Feather in Your Cap

Hello hello! I generally avoid mixing real life and vintage on the blog here, at least in detail, but it seems proper to let you know that I just survived day one at my new job, and I’ll be getting into the groove of that work/life balance over the next few weeks! To be honest,…

Battle Plaid

When Doug’s mom came to visit earlier this month, we took advantage of the nice weather and the opportunity to play tourist and took a trip out to Battle Road. I don’t have a lot of outdoors-appropriate clothing, so getting dressed to go on a walk is always a bit of a challenge. Since we…

Finally Finished

Hey, look, it’s a finished sewing project! It’s been a while since I had one of those to share… and this one has been “in progress” for far too long. This dress is absolutely a study in procrastination. I think I started working on it last fall, and got it mostly put together when it…

Prepare for Liftoff

Time has just been flying by for me lately, although in way it also feels like it’s standing still! I started to sit down to write this post and thought “You know, for how busy I’ve been, I’ve really been keeping up with the blog! I just did a post a few days ago…” Um,…

On Repeat

I often feel a lot of pressure as a blogger (real or imagined? I don’t know…) to avoid repeating dresses or outfits on the blog. I feel like as a good blogger I should always try to show something “new”, and often I avoid wearing favorite outfits on multiple outings because I’ve already photographed them…

Two if by Sea

Whoo… it’s been quite a week. I have some other posts to share with you, and a new finished sewing project, but my brain is completely fried so right now you’re getting a picture of an outfit I wore a couple weekends back and a little babbling… you’re all here for the pretty pictures, right?…

Red Hat Club

Two weekends ago, Doug and I spent Saturday and Sunday stuffed into a small lecture hall with about a hundred other people for the required Catholic wedding prep classes. It wasn’t exactly the most exciting way to spend a weekend, but at least it got us out of the house and gave me an excuse…

Right on Target

I have been holding on to this tiny 1940s hat for a good two years, since I went to Rhode Island to visit Whitney and picked up a sad little stained and discolored black and natural straw tilt hat with a lot of potential and a low price tag. I tried a couple times to…

By Silver Lake

I suppose that technically we’re just past the dog days of summer, and I’m hoping that the weather got the memo! It’s been meltingly hot these past few weeks, and humid too! My 40s peasant blouse has been in heavy rotation, naturally. I’ve contemplated making another one, but what color would I choose? It seems…
