A Day at the Zoo









1950s Dress: Retro Glamour
Belt: My favorite vintage shop
Shoes: Target
1950s purse: REALLY going in my shop this week!

The other day was so beautiful Jonny and I decided to take a trip to our local Zoo. It's not the biggest of Zoos, but it's free! It has everything from bears, alligators to buffalo! The above pictures are of some of my favorite cute and cuddly animals. Gosh, I just love flamingos! I'm also very excited to share with you my new dress! A few posts back I said I was trying to save money to buy this dress. Instead I decided to buy myself a vintage dress or two that I wouldn't be able to buy otherwise. I have wanted a 1950s novelty print dress for quite a long time. So, when I saw this one with its little red zebras I knew I had to have it! This sweet little dress lead my over to Retro Glamour and yet another perfect dress! So, I bought myself my perfect novelty print dress and yet another wonderful 1950s dress that you're going to have to wait and see, hehe! In the mean time you need to add Retro Glamour to your favorites on Ebay because her dresses are to die for!

I love this entire outfit, but really adore the print on your dress! Amazingly cute. (I am waiting on a trip to our local zoo to see the baby capybaras. Google them if you don't know what a capybara is--they are the cutest giant rodents ever!)
