Winter is here! Fall slipped by beyond quickly, as usual. Nonetheless, I'm excited for the season, and hope to make it a great one! We didn't actually get snow where I live, we had to drive up the mountain a bit. I will say, walking in the snow in high heels, while trying to pose for a picture- not an easy feat- haha! Even a ranger drove by and said,
" Those aren't exactly snow shoes, are they?" Wow- the things I do to myself.
This dress is from an incredible shop that I am SO excited to feature today! Over the past few months, Diane, the owner and seamstress of Mable Rose, has come to be a lovely a friend <3 I found this dress while I was searching for floral 50s styles, and fell head over heels, and even more so when it came in the mail- the quality is impeccable! It's handmade, yet has the look of an authentic 1950s treasure. Even the ric rac is perfect- it's embroidered, which I prefer much more over the ribbon type. The skirt is super full,
(definitely speaking to my heart here) and it has come to be one of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe. The most amazing part? The prices are crazy affordable! Nearly all of the dresses are $35! For you girls who love vintage, but don't want to spend a fortune- don't miss out on this one- no joke.
A chunky knit scarf is a must have for winter, and this one has my heart! It is from The Love Stitch, and is oh so warm and beautiful! It's an infinity scarf, which means no hassle with tying it. It comes in a TON of colors, so if you have an outfit in mind, you'll have no problem finding a match! You can pick up your own here.
I'm ecstatic to be featuring A Pocket of Whimsy again! Do you remember the adorable binocular necklace from October? This lovely comes from the same shop! When Alexis asked me if I would be interested in styling the Mushroom Shadow Box Necklace, I was so excited! This is seriously the best conversation piece- I get compliments on it all of the time. And... it opens! How darling is that?
Hehe, wasn't kidding- it was SO cold! I should have been wearing a coat. These are the consequences of being a naive California girl- haha!
