fancy seeing you















coat  vintage
dress  vintage
belt  thrifted
heels  vintage

Autumnal colors are my favorite colors, always. Mustard, rust, brown, burgundy, and everything in between. I found this perfect 1950's dress during my last visit to San Francisco and I couldn't resist the hue and print. I'm fully enjoying my first real Autumn on the east coast, although as I type this the entire city of Philadelphia is in a mad flurry because of the impending Frankenstorm. I will admit I'm a bit excited because it will be my first true storm experience. My family, however, keeps calling me from the west coast to make sure that I've stocked up on food and batteries. I have a feeling they are more worried than I am. I'm just disappointed that my Halloween plans this year have been a bust! Perhaps I should have a one person costume party and take advantage of all the costuming potential my wardrobe has to offer?

I do hope you find something fun to do on Halloween, knowing that it is your favorite holiday. You always pull off such creative & fabulous costumes. I, on the other hand, always get stressed and seem to have no creativity when Halloween comes around, maybe because I dress up in vintage costume on a daily basis. Glad you're enjoying Philadelphia. Love that mustard coat & dress!

That dress is gorgeous on you. I can't believe the great vintage finds you discover.

Hope you don't get too wet in the storm...we've had rain here for 2 days already.

That coat is amazing! So beautiful, coats are the best. I just found one like that at Goodwill the other day.
I'm in the same boat with you for Frankenstorm, where I live two storms are going to converge and we're supposed to get pounded! It's kind of exciting.

Yikes! Hope frankenstorm (!) blows over, leaving you, kitty, and your wonderful collection of vintage goodies unharmed.

And that dress. So pretty. I'm in love.
