I spent this past weekend in Reno with a few of my favorite girls, which was the perfect excuse to dig out some of my neglected summer dresses. This little 1960's frock reminds me of Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby with its short tent shape and sweet bow. I carried my crazy "I Have Money to Burn" purse around all weekend, of course, which I'm sure made several old ladies pretty jealous. It happened to be the perfect time for a Reno jaunt because our hotel was hosting a bodybuilding pageant, a Miss Hawaiian Tropics pageant, and Toddlers & Tiaras. So you can imagine the craziness we saw each day (think deep tans, string bikinis, and lots of sequins). Although wearing my funny old dresses earned me just as many bewildered stares!

Oh my lord, that dress is so cute! You are right, it is very Mia Farrow. But (shhh) *EVEN BETTER* than anything she wears in that film.

You are so delightfully cute! Love your dress. In fact, I've been admiring all the 60s dresses you've been wearing as of late. Sounds like you hit Reno at the most perfect of times!

Oh my....your blog has made me incredibly jealous of your wardrobe.

It also makes me want to shop and totally rehall my own wardrobe which is a dangerous thought.


Love the blog and super style.
