Yoohoo, notice anything? That's right- it's full on, glaring orange- ha! Now that I have officially walked you through the leaf colors for the past three weeks, maybe I can convince myself to talk about other things... maybe ;) Well, actually, in all honesty these were taken up the mountain, so it's technically not like this right where I live, but close enough for me! It amazes me how gorgeous Oak Glen is. Even though it is just a little ways from where I live, Oak Glen always manages to get the fall colors and the winter snow.
I was especially happy because this dress I found at Wish Me Vintage managed to match perfectly with the scenery up there. I discovered this little vintage hot spot about a month ago and fell in love! The shop was just opened in August, so it is relatively new. At the moment it is currently stocked with a bunch of darling little vintage dresses with adorable, girly details like lace trim, collars and bows. It never ceases to amaze me- when I find a shop that has a way of curating so many great pieces, I'm sold. And the shop owner Anna is a joy to work with!
This particular dress is from the 1950s. I'm not sure if it was shortened or not, being that 50's dresses are usually a bit longer. However, in this situation it worked out perfectly because it gives the dress a bit of a modern touch. The fabric is really fun because it is more durable like a cotton, but with the look of chiffon. There's a name for it, but my lack of fabric knowledge just has me comparing to the familiar- haha.
Ahh, acorns. Love hate relationship. I think they were trying to murder me when we took these pictures- no joke! They were literally shooting down from the trees like mini torpedoes - I've honestly never seen anything like it before. It's hard to try and pose for a pretty picture when there's an acorn ambush raining from the sky.
