Dressing Up

Hey friends!

I'm so excited the weather has been so nice! I've been dragging the dresses out of the depths of my closet and giving them some love.

Here are the latest outfits:

I know I have said it before and I'll say it again. I love these Citizen's bell bottoms! I could live in them! My entire outfit is Anthro.

I'm obsessed with Mexican embroidery. I have a vast collection of embroidered shirts new and very old, and when I saw this dress I about died. I had my Mexican tooled sandals on, but I had a LONG day at work and just had to kick them off right away!

This is an OLD Anthro dress I bought way back in '05 or '06. I will wear this dress until it becomes threadbare.

Today was "hat day" at work so I dug one of my vintage hats out of my collection. The rest of the outfit fell into place and I actually had to put the dress over my head carefully since I already had my hat on.  Sometimes you gotta put your pants on both legs at once :) I made this dress in one of my college fashion classes from an old simplicity pattern and vintage fabric. The belt is vintage and the shoes are Frye. The pin used to say "Mother" in gold wire but I made a collage on it with an old picture of a scrappy dog that looks like my pup Ruby. My coworkers loved this outfit, but one of the Regional's came in for a pop in visit and looked at me like I was insane. To be fair, she was wearing a navajo blanket as a dress...heehee (just kidding her dress was pretty cool, I could never pull it off)

Well, that's it for now...
