Blue Sunday







1950's Dress: Trade with Aya
Belt: My Mom's from before I was born!
Boots: Frye

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been awhile since my last post! Fall allergies got the best of me. :o/
Anyway, I'm super excited to share this dress with you! Aya of Strawberry Koi and I did a dress trade (yes, I'm the dress trade queen lately, hehe) and this is the dress I got from her. I simply adore it! Thank you Aya! I have a feeling we'll do this again ;o)
The belt was my Mom's back in the 1970's....Could it be any cuter with the little animals!? We took these pictures on the way home after leaving Fab's house. I fell in love with the broken down barn!
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! Friday I had a fantastic blogger meet-up and I promise to post pictures soon!

You're doing well with these dress trades- hey? I am tempted to follow your example!!
I'm loving the crinoline poking through from underneath.
Also - what is that amazing ramshackle building in the background? It looks like something out of a book by Shaun Tan!

adorable dress. you look so good in blue!

PS: yes! you need a motorcycle jacket! I have one and I love it. Wearing it with dresses is such a fun contrast (and a typical me outfit, I might add).

You're doing one of my favorite fashion trends right now - boots with dresses. I so need to find me some good boots.

I'd say you did well with your trade. That blue looks lovely on you.

Aya is another favorite of mine. Have fun meeting her.
