I recently discovered Dakota and her brand new blog Sweetheart of the Rodeo. I was smitten right away with Dakota's gorgeous pictures and perfect style! The way she mixes prints and wears the sweetest vintage dresses with colorful tights and cowboy boots is simply darling. I asked Dakota to answer a few questions so we could get to know her better. Enjoy!

I thought I'd share some of the images that inspired me to get my pixie cut. I'd look at these images over and over before I finally decided to make the cut! Jean Seberg has always been a favorite of mine and of course Audrey Hepburn.
Today I've got a nasty cold so I'm stuck on the sofa...I think I'll watch Breathless! ;o)
Talk to you soon!

How do you like my new hair?!
Boots: The Nashville Flea Market
After two years of trying to grow my hair I decided it was time for me to have a pixie cut again! Two of my biggest fashion icons are Jean Seberg and Carey Mulligan and couldn't help but chop all my hair off again. I simply love it! I found an awesome new stylist, Will at Trim! If you need your hair done, go to Will. ;o)

Last week Aya of Strawberry Koi contacted me and to let me know she would be making a quick trip to Nashville. I've know Aya over the internet since we both started our blogs, so of course I knew I had to meet her while she was in town! So, Friday afternoon Fab, Lauren, Jonny and I meet Aya, her husband Thomas as well as they're two friends Kristine and Sara. We spent the afternoon vintage shopping, drinking coffee and laughing lots. I really had such a wonderful time meeting everyone! It made me kinda sad that they all don't live closer but I know we'll see each other again soon! :o)

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

Back in August when I went to Graceland I promised Casey I would take pictures at Elvis's house in the lovely dress I borrowed from her. So finally here they are! These were taken in the early morning hours of August 16th, thirty three years to the day that Elvis passed away.
Here I'm walking to the Meditation Garden, a place Elvis built to, meditate in, hehe. He's now buried there with his Mom, Dad and Grandma.
Here's Elvis singing the song Memories in his leather suit....sorry, I couldn't resist! ;o)
Oh, and I should be a having a very exciting blogger meet up in the next day or two! Yay!!!

1950's Dress from Holli
Hi darlings! This lovely dress became mine just recently when I did a trade with Holli of A Red Robbin. It all started when I was reading her blog and she had this dreamy dress hanging on her wall because it was quite her size. After finding out it was my size I asked her if she'd ever consider selling it. Instead Holli suggested doing a trade....how could I say no! I couldn't love this dress anymore! Thank you so much Holli for being such a sweetheart. I'll be sure to let you all know when Holli has pictures of the dress I sent her on her blog!
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! Mine was filled with great friends, good food and some country music. Simply fabulous! Talk to you soon! :o)

Elizabeth Taylor has been one of my favorite actresses since I was a little girl. I remember being super small and watching National Velvet, wishing I looked like Elizabeth. Back then there was still some hope that I would grow to be as stunningly gorgeous as she was/is. No such luck, lol! Though I do pretend and quite often have Elizabeth's face as my profile picture on facebook, hehe. Anyway I came across these rare images of Elizabeth on tumblr and I think they're so lovely and inspiring. I hope you do too!
All images from my tumblr
What a babe, huh?!
Have a wonderful weekend you pretty things!
