All dressed up…


Sweet and Sour Vintage dress

Last Saturday I was all dressed up with no place to go. I couldn’t wait for a fancy shindig to wear this gorgeous dress from Sweet & Sour Vintage, so Brian and I took a drive up the mountain to snap some pics. We went to a spot that he often drives up to on his lunch break, and we made it just before sunset.

This dress is the perfect addition to my vintage collection. The blue and white fabric has a unique pattern and texture, and it’s thick enough to give this dress structure. Sometimes a shift or A line dress of this length can be an unflattering silhouette, but this one has a nice shape to it. The lacy trim, mini rhinestones, and neck details made me feel ready for a night on the town, so go ahead and start sending those cocktail party invitations my way!




As you can see from my hair, I was battling the wind, which is normal this time of year. At least the cut of this dress isn’t a risky style for windy days, it stayed perfectly in place- while my bangs were a different story…

Did you see the blood moon last night? Brian was nice enough to wake me up for it, since I’m 100 years old and was falling asleep by 10. I stumbled outside to ooh and aah for a few minutes before hitting the hay again. Very cool.

    That first picture is so dreamy :) You look lovely in this dress. It is windy here this time of year too. I hate it because I always wear flowy dresses that I have to hold down while I’m walking around outside haha.

    Wow, gorgeous dress! I love your brooch too! I missed the blood moon because it was totally overcast and raining (flooding) here in Sydney. Bummer.
