Swapping Dresses



A vintage buddy suggested that we swap dresses & of course I was game.
Getting something in the mail? Excellent.
Something vintage & in my size for that matter? Even better.
We decided on swapping 30's dresses & lace party dresses & I am just thrilled.




We're having a bout of odd weather today- 
balmy, dewy & sunny with the rumble of thunder in the clouds .
So, today's outfit is a mish-mash of the seasons. 
Not quite summer, not quite autumn.







30's Dress: swapped from Ariel via Simplicity is Bliss Vintage | Knee High Boots: Dolce Vita 
Floppy Felt Hat: thrifted | 50's Gold Bracelet: antique mall

A little more of Nicole from Fashion Forestry.
Will I ever tire of her fantastic style?
Highly unlikely.

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday, darlings!

Wedding Wednesday



I met a bride named Allison a few months back who wanted to marry her sweetheart in vintage.
She purchased a 1930's gown with a massive skirt & sweet braided details
& added her own lace panel to the back (which I absolutely adore!)




She looked beyond marvelous.
& that parasol?
Swoooooon

Pretty Shop Pairings - Deep Purple

I would love to see a vintage bombshell don 
this purple wool suit, reptile heels & dainty ballerina brooches.
The shoes & dress are about *this* close to fitting me properly,
so as you may have guessed I've been thinking about this sort of outfit for some time.

Wedding Wednesday

Wednesdays on the blog will now affectionately be devoted to all things 
Wedding. 

To kick things off, let's take a peek at one of my favorite vintage wedding dresses in the shop.

Meet Camille


She's from the late 30's/early 40's & is an absolute babe.
Delicate details like peek-a-boo lace panels, buttons up the side & puffed sleeves
lend to an utterly romantic look. 






In my mind, the bride who wears this dress would have a ring like this:

a veil similar to this:

& a bouquet of these:

A little something special for September-

from 50's novelty fabric to a 40's mint cake carrier.

Just a few trinkets to accompany the pretty dresses &

The collection will debut over the weekend!

Les Ballets



This July, I made the decision to cut off 10" of my hair.
It's been a fun adventure figuring out how to curl/tease/dry/pin short hair.
I attempted a ballerina bun today.
 Instead of being able to wrap the hair around a pony several times,
I found myself pinning little sections under. 
& I may or may not have mumbled words a sailor would fancy as I tried to do so.



I followed this tutorial
& wore NARS matte lip in Dragon Girl

Pretty Shop Pairings - Silver Lining

Wouldn't these three be great worn together?

Red Lipstick Tomboy



This is one of those dresses that I will end up wearing out before it's time.
I forsee several seamstress trips & little "here & there" mends.



 
The soft mesh fabric & cabbage rose embroidery lend a romantic feel
& the boots satisfy my tomboy craving. 
 Let me just say, if I could go back in time 
& high five my 10-year-old tomboy self for donning overalls & boots, 
I most definitely would. 
Note to self: find adult sized overalls.




I wonder if 10 year old Lauren would have a thing or two to say 
about my red lipstick?
:)

Girls in BBV Sept. 1st

It's no secret that I'm pretty smitten with Ashley of Fancy Fine
I'm a proud sponsor on her blog, 
& just think she's the bees knees. 
I've had the supreme treat of seeing her style pieces from the shop, from hats to dresses.
I'm a lucky little shop owner for sure!
