Ghost Town...





Yes, another rundown building. I'm just having too much fun using them in photos! Anyway, today was a delightful Sunday! We went to a local funky beach town and enjoyed walking around stopping at bookstores and coffee shops. I had the greatest lunch ever at an organic cafe! On the way home we stopped at a junk store and I was thrilled to find a dress form. I've been looking for one for ages and they were always too pricey or too big. This one is just perfect! I can't wait to use it to display my Etsy clothes! I'm also almost done with season 1 of Mad Men. Is it just me, or does this show just get better and better?! So long for now!

Early 60s shirtwaist dress: Ebay
Socks: Target
Shoes: Bongo
Purse: Thrifted

Omg, you look GORGEOUS in that dress!! I wish I could pull off the whole shoes and socks look, but I can't! *jealous*

That dress is amazing and it fits beautifully on you. I enjoy your old building photographs for I am a fan of dilapidated buildings. If only they could speak, I imagine the stories they would tell.

I'm waiting for the third season of Mad Men to be aired here too (I watched the season premiere on line though!)...I adore the show.

You always have such marvellous dresses!

I'm desperately seeking a hat form...found a lot in US (but of course the shipping costs to Italy are killer) but none nice/reasonably priced here :-(

You look so cute! I love the socks :)

briannelee said...

So jealous about the dress form!

I am sure you look great in jewelry... you just have to find a style that works for you. I could see you in delicate antique necklaces.

Great photos, love the vintage style feel they have; it looks like you have stepped out of an old fashion movie.
And yeah I know, I love Mad Men, the costumes are brilliant as well! Just bought the 1st series and I am working my way through them, totally hooked now!
Love this post

I love the combination of the ankle socks and the oxfords. And you always seem to find the perfect little shirt dresses.

I took a peek at your etsy shop, and your new dress form looks lovely! Your sale section is just killing me; so many wonderful things that I could make mine! ;)
