Merry Christmas, Darlings! The ground is white, and the day is beautiful here in So Cal! I've got to say- this was the most miserable shoot I have ever done as far as being cold, but I'll do most anything to get a good photo session- haha! Thankfully my recent cold/flu wasn't furthered by the weather, and now I am sitting in a warm house, so no complaints here!
This dress is such a special piece. If anyone ever wanted to feel like a mid-century Disney princess, this would be the dress. It's actually a 1950s wedding gown, but due to the length I was able to wear it to a Christmas ball a few days ago- it was undoubtedly a conversation piece, something I always love to do when I'm wearing vintage :) I found it at a beautiful little Etsy shop called Folk & Fables. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to feature the shop on the blog. It really is one of those Etsy stores that is so professional and makes you want to purchase from them.You can really tell that shop owner, Tawni, puts a lot of hard work into her business. The dress came just as described, which is definitely always a plus!
So this was embarrassing- after spending 15 minutes trying to hang ornaments on this tree with frozen fingers, we walked away and completely forgot about them. An hour later, we came walking back down the road to find a ranger pulling the ornaments off the tree! Oops- that was an accident. We just kept walking- it was worth losing four ornaments to not have to own up to our holiday "graffiti" haha!
This lovely little fascinator was sent to me courtesy of Castle Memories. I thought it added the perfect touch to this outfit, and I dressed it up a bit with a 50's crystal brooch. It's only $12 and it can be ordered as a comb, headband, or an alligator clip.
