Happy (early) Wednesday! As I write this, it is 12:30 am here- this is what happens when I forget to write up my posts until hours before they are supposed to go live- ahhhhh!!!!! Now if only I can keep my eyes open long enough to write this ;)

I had some fun mixing pieces from different eras to create a 1920s look this week. This darling sweater is from an insanely amazing Etsy shop called, Roselein Rarities. This is one of those Etsy shops that you just can't get enough of- there is always a plethora of gorgeous things in stock- can you say kid in a candy store? This sweater is actually a 1950s piece- I adore the details- from the sweet collar to the darling ribbon bow.

Deanna of Keep Drawer sent me this darling little beaded purse as a gift a few months back- from the moment I laid eyes on it, I knew it would have to make it's way into one of my shoots ;)

On a completely random note- I will have a makeup tutorial coming your way within the next two weeks! Don't worry- I made this vlog half the amount of time as the first one, and I figured out some ways to really improve my filming.

Hi Alex!
This may be my favorite outfit yet this year! Just because it fits my modesty standards and I absolutely love headscarves!

That bag is so darling!

I'm going to fly over to So Cal right this minute to steal that sweater right out of your closet. It's just much to perfect, as you are :)

Oh, and I had a dream the other night that you came over to our house and that you and I hit it right off with photography and photo editing. It was awesome ;)

I just discovered your blog and I can't get enough of your gorgeous photos and outfits! Your wear vintage perfectly - this ensemble is no exception. Just adorable. ^.^

I just realized why some of your photos look so familiar. I live in San Diego - weekend trips to the places you take pictures have been a part of my life since I was very little. :)

another gorgeous shoot, and again inspiring me to find a pair of brown oxfords.

Kristian said...

You look gorgeous- and it is so interesting to me how you make 1950s things look 20s and sort of...timeless too.

Jennifer Rainey said...

You look beautiful as always! I love that skirt--such a vibrant color!

I'm pretty much in love with how you wore this scarf. I wonder if I can pull off tying one like that with my short hair... It looks so cute on you! I love the color of your skirt here too. Great look!

You own so many beautiful clothes. I could only dream of that because I can't even make fashion posts anymore because all the dresses I have owned have ripped or I wear them so much they have holes in them or I just haven't the finances for any clothes. I miss dressing up and looking pretty on my blog and used to do outfit posts so regularly (about once a week). I am a little envious of your ability to do so.
Amazing photos and I love the colors on this outfit!!
