20's dress  vintage
fascinator  vintage

I've been in a pale pink mood lately. I found this amazing silk dress at the Vintage Fashion Expo recently and I'm tempted to wear it every day. Unfortunately it would probably disintegrate right off my body since it's so delicate! I could seriously stare at it for hours, it's such a lovely piece and has held up amazingly over time. The goofy pink fascinator was another Fashion Expo find and a welcome addition to my rather small hat collection. I love hats but I often just plain forget to wear them. But they are fun just to have around and admire. Speaking of hats, I sang karaoke last night with Nicole of Fashion Forestry and she happened to be sporting, as always, an incredible hat... photos of that soon!
