On the Eve of March

Ah, finally a set of pictures that really capture our weather lately! This past weekend, the weather has been just glorious- even though the drought isn't having a good overall effect on California, it's not hard to make lemonade out of lemons with days like this! 

Today I am wearing a sheer 1940s number from Edith Says. It's amazing really, how well a 70 year old garment has been preserved for all of these years! Not one tear, not one stain! Claire really has a wonderful way of finding incredible, rare pieces for her shop.

I wear these gloves so often- it really has made me realize how useful a good pair of white vintage gloves can be! Sometimes they just add that perfect finishing touch to an outfit.

Greenwood Store sent me this gorgeous handmade floppy hat, and I couldn't love it much more! The crocheting adds just the write touch of sweetness. Greenwood Store's hats are custom made, so they will work with you to get the measurements exact ( perfect for me because my hats are always too big and flying away in the wind)! I threw on a little cotton scarf to give it a bit of a 1930's look- I think it would also look smashing with a little flower pin (hopefully I will be styling it again like that soon).

Where Flowers Bloom

Wow, what a week! Suddenly there seems to be so much to get done, and so many people to see. My schedule does that sometimes- it goes through lagging periods, and then kick-starts back up for a month or so.

This week I am wearing a lovely, 1950s Jerry Gilden Spectator dress, sent to me courtesy of D & J Vintage. Some of you may have heard my ravings about D & J on social media a while back. When I discover an amazing vintage hub, I can't help but let everyone know! This is the first 50s wiggle dress I have owned- I am naturally, as you all know, drawn to the flouncy, fuller skirts. But lately I've been wanting to shake things up a bit, so what better than to finally try a fitted dress?

I have been busily building up my collection of vintage gloves and bags. Maybe sometime, I will have to do a post about it.

This pretty hat is handmade from Kasia Girtler-millinery. It's one of a collection of several gorgeous vintage hat reproductions. The best part is that Kasia's hats can be purchased in different colors, so you don't have to worry when it comes to matching to your favorite ensemble!

I am so excited to share these pictures with you Gals today! As most of my more prop heavy shoots, I have been planning this for about two months! This is definitely a bolder outfit choice for me- you can imagine the looks I got at Party City when we went in to fill the the balloons- haha! Sometimes a ton of bright color can push me a bit out of my comfort zone, but really, is there a more fitting occasion for some quirky color than Valentine's Day? 

This is seriously the neatest raincoat from Moxie 2 Runway Vintage. Not only is it a gorgeous shade of red, but the greatest part? It's completely reversible! I would also like to take this moment to say, I have had the most amazing customer service experience with this Etsy shop- truly so professional- it's stellar! So you Vintage gurus definitely need to stop by and have a look around- it will be well worth your time! Moxie 2 Runway is also the same place where I scored this pretty little camel colored coat in December.

I have had requests in the past to do some remix posts- well here we are! Perhaps some of your remember, I featured this pretty little frock from Sophster Toaster this past Summer  ( you can see here). Mint really is such a versatile color- it's been a new favorite of mine lately!

How adorable is this little fascinator? It is a custom made design from Les Mirettes. Marielle worked with me to pick out the colors and fabrics- I am so impressed with how it turned out! You can purchase a similar one here, or work with Marielle to design your own custom creation!
