Loretta Spam ;)

This morning when I went out to our yard to get Loretta, I found this. Has to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen! I find this particularly funny because Loretta always need our help to get on the sofa. Which is lower than this lawn chair. Now, if I can just capture her getting on the chair, lol! Have a wonderful Thursday! xo

French Feeling Sailor Girl

1940's sailor top, Wildfell Hall Vintage 
Dress, Betsey Johnson (also my wedding dress!)
Shoes, Swedish Hasbeens

This outfit is one I've had planned in my head for awhile. It wasn't until today that I actually wore it though! Don't know what took me so long. It's inspired my the lovely Anna Karina. She's been one of my biggest inspirations recently! The jacket is from Amy of Wildfell Hall Vintage. It has to be one of my favorite things ever! 
Well, that's all for now. I hope you had a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Inspiration Friday, Priscilla Presley

 Y'all know I'm a super big Elvis fan! So, naturally I'm a fan of Priscilla Presley too. She's always been a bit of a fashion icon for me. Yes, back when I was a teen I had the super long hair and copied outfits of hers. She was after all, loved by the king.

 This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of seeing Priscilla talk about Elvis and Graceland. A dream of mine forever! My little brother Flynn was along for the ride as well as being my photographer.  Sadly people bombarded the stage and ruined our chance to get closer to take a better picture. Don't you hate when that happens!? Despite that I had a wonderful time! :)

I also got to meet some more cool Elvis people. More on that later!
Oh, and Tuesday I get to see Lisa Marie Presley perform at The Ryman! Yay!!!!!
Have a great weekend! xo

 Life has been a little bit crazy lately. So, today for a little getaway my Mom and I went out thrifting, lunching and park walking. Just what I need! She snapped these phone pics of Loretta and I exploring in the park. The weather has been perfection! I'm wearing the 40's dress I showed you a few days ago. I'm going to take better pictures real soon! In the meantime, I hope y'all are well! xo

PS: As you can see I cut my hair into a pixie again. SO glad I did! :)

Inspirations Friday, Anna Karina

All photos found here

Lately I've been completely obsessed with Anna Karina's style. I know she's been a fashion icon for ages, but for some reason I've just recently discovered how fabulous she is. As I'm working on 
Q's Daydream Handmade's fall collection I find myself going to Anna and many other
French New Wave actresses for inspiration. It seems the French always get it right :)
Have a glorious weekend! xo

Tattered Treasure

1940's Novelty Print Dress, Croatia Vintage

Hello lovelies! I apologize for the lack of posting the last few days. A never ending migraine had me feeling blahhh... but receiving this 1940's dress in the mail from Caitlin of Croatia Vintage made me feel a much better! Croatia Vintage is one of my favorites shops on Etsy and probably my most shopped. When I saw this 40's beauty I told Caitlin I'd love to fix her up and make her pretty again. So, that's just what I'm going to do! Those details and that print can not go to waste. I can't wait to share her with you when she's done!
Have a lovely week! xo

Inspiration Friday, Lana Turner In Hollywood

All found via Johanna's Blog, she found them here

I discovered these adorable images of Lana Turner on Johanna's blog. They were taken in 1939 and 1940 by Peter Stackpole. It's funny this last week I've watched a couple of Lana Turner films and knew I wanted to post about her soon. So happy Johanna posted these pictures first!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Oh, and thank you all so much for the sweet comments about my dress! Also, thank you your hair suggestions. You'll see what I decided on soon ;)
