legion of honor
























dress  vintage from secret lake
hat  thrifted
purse  thrifted
shoes  fletcher by lyell

These photos were taken in and around the beautiful Legion of Honor. The amazing vintage 1960's dress is from one of my favorite Etsy shops (and also one of my lovely sponsors), Secret Lake. I love yellow and gray together and it happened to match the colors of my hat rather perfectly. The crazy vintage fox purse was fished out of a huge pile at a thrift store and as ridiculous as it looks I just couldn't say no. If something makes me laugh loudly the second I spy it then chances are it's coming home with me. That may seem like strange criteria, but I enjoy dressing with a sense of humor whenever possible!

That dress is gorgeous!

And I'm with you on those criteria - I've realised recently that much as I might envy girls who look sophisticated and put together, I can't help but be drawn to clothes that make me giggle.

Okay, your hair is phenomenal. I am so envious. :)

And these photos and outfit are beautiful! I really like your funny little purse.

What a lovely dress! And that bag is pretty horrifying but pretty cool at the same time.
These pictures are so fun and the scenery reminds me of Marie Antoinette.

like a yellow daffodil in the sunshine, or a summer belle, with the unexpected fox fur twist that adds a pop of surprise.

Gorgeous - what a beautiful setting for pictures. I love how you can take the most overtly 'of-another-era' dress and make it look modern and stylish!

That bag is so frightening! In a good way though! I think one of my favorite things about your blog is the little injections of real humor you always make sure it has :D Aside from that, these pictures are soooo gorgeous!
