At Sunset...

Saturday I spent walking around town drinking tea and and looking in shop windows. On my way home there was the most lovely sunset. I was delighted to discover the most beautiful marshy fields with a wonderful old railroad track. It's a place I will be visiting more often. I hope everyone has had a great weekend! :o)

Jacket: Free People from last year
Skirt: vintage (it was only $2!)

Jonny and My Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving was a simple one. It was the first Thanksgiving Jonny and I spent at home and our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. Don't let the picture of me in the apron fool you, Jonny did most of the cooking. I did do all the! It was a perfect day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :o)

Bundled Up!

On Sunday Jonny and I went for a walk on the beach, despite the fact that it was 10 degrees! It was so cold that I had to break down and wear jeans over my tights (I'm not really a jeans kind of a girl). The one exciting thing I'm wearing is a new vintage coat I found. It's so warm! The hats are from last Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! To those that aren't celebrating turkey day have a great Thursday! :o)

Think Pink!

I've never been one to wear very much pink, but when I saw these tights at Urban Outfitters I couldn't resist! I guess they remind me of the days when I was a little girl going to ballet classes. So, what better place for a photo shoot wearing pink tights than on a swing? After all doesn't every little kid love swings?! This swing just happens to be in my backyard. It's been there sense the 1960's, I love the little flower stickers that have probably been there just as long. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :o)

This is my favorite picture from the newest issue of Lula. I love everything about it, the adorable Luella dress she's wearing, those tights and the great expression on her face. Most of all I REALLY want that dress!

PS: It's been dark when I get home so I haven't been able to take pictures outside, and inside pictures are usually not the most attractive. Tomorrow I'll be home all day so I plan on heading into the great outdoors with my trusty tripod and taking some pic's. So until tomorrow my dears...

I fell in love with this dress by French Connection (it reminds me of a dress from Luella's fall collection that I adore). I sold a few of my collectable dolls on ebay to get it! I find myself prancing around the house in this dress, it's much more fun than my old dolls.

One of my favorite designers is Luella. I'm always looking to her collections for inspiration. Inspired by a blue minidress in her Fall 2008 collection I hemmed up one of my vintage dresses to give it a similar shape. I love the finished look! Can you believe this dress was almost a foot longer!? 

Also, I want to apologize for the lack of posts this past week. I haven't been feeling well for awhile now and I am trying to get back on my feet. I should be back into the swing of things soon. :o)

Walk the Line

One of my favorite movies of all time is Walk the Line. Not only does it take place in my two favorite decades, the 50's and 60's, but it's a wonderful love story and I love Johnny Cash. I remember before it came out in the theater I was so excited I could hardly stand it. I, of course, went on opening night & Jonny took me. It was our first real date and God bless him he dressed all in black just for! I was not disappointed at all by the film, in fact I saw it 10 times! A couple times with Jonny then I dragged my Mom and then my little brother (he went 3 times)! Not since Titanic had I been so obsessed with a movie. The reason I wanted to do this post is because the way Reese Witherspoon dresses in this film is still a great inspiration for me. She wears an array of glorious 1950's and 1960's dresses that are guaranteed to impress. Enjoy! :o)

PS: I don't know if anyone else cares, but I was really sad to hear that Joaquin Phoenix is quitting acting!
