newness



I acquired several new (vintage) dresses last week and I couldn't wait to share them. The one above I found at Held Over and it has the most wonderful ruffled collar and bow combo. And the sweet little number below (found at After Life) boasts one of the funniest tags I've ever seen: High Casual Sensuous. Makes me want to start a band with that name... it would be smooth jazz, obviously.

wow, that first dress looks similar to that Anna Sui/Gossip Girl collection for Target! I like yours better though! It has a bigger bow.

And you are indeed looking highly casual and yet sensuous. I'm intensely crushing on that blue bow/white dress combination.

Love them so much.... especially the first lace number.

you have the best luck thrifting, I can never find anything in the shops by me. That dress is adorable and would look so cute on the lead singer of a smooth jazz band...jazz flute anyone

Haha! I LOVE it when the tags say something awesome! There is a vintage New Zealand brand called 'Harry Potter' (not nearly as good, but still gets a smile out of me)

I adore your new dress and these photos are perfect! You blog is creeping up (very quickly) into my favourite blogs! I secretly wish I had your hair!
