Vintage Dress Week lookbook #4 - pastoral pastimes






















Dress: Vintage; Shoes: Modern Vintage; Necklace: gift; Hat + aviators: Forever 21; Zoltan the Crow



I fell in love the French Pastoral qualities of this vintage dress the moment I saw it. The peeks of maroon and blue will pair wonderfully with my corresponding metallic Vic Matie Mary-Janes and matching tights come the fall. It's easy, flowy, breezy and different. I probably won't wear it with this hat ($3 on sale!) but on this day - where angry dark skies cleared to a mustard yellow sun - it seemed to flow.

So did Zoltan the crow (named after The Dark Tower Series) who came along for the photo shoot.

Big BIG thanks and hugs to all of my lovely readers and friends. Your support on my last post, and in general, is beyond awesome. You guys make my world go round :)

Yep..don't let one bad apple...you know the rest;)

At first I thought you meant Dark Tower the game (I have that) But you mean the books...I haven't read those yet. Though I've read a ton of other Stephen King.

Love your dress and especially your jewelry! Reminds me of French Tuscany look.

Georgia said...

It would be mine

Vegas Princess said...

I think this is by far my favorite of the series. I am wondering, what classifies a dress as vintage? Is it just something that is not made any more? That designer is no longer around? Or the collection is over? I was just curious.

And I was also wondering how long it takes you to get ready each day. You are always so put together and perfect, it would take me hours to even come close. And do you plan your outfits ahead of time or just dress in what strikes your fancy that day?

Sorry for all the questions. I guess since I have not been around lately I am playing catch up. :)
