This vibrant yellow dress was calling to me amidst the racks of 70's and 80's horror pieces that were cluttering up the vintage section at my thrift store. It reached out it's bright sunny hand and waved at me like a old friend. I don't think I own a piece quite this vivid in my closet! When I went to try it on, I almost questioned the fit of it a bit, until I realized that the two front slits were pockets and then I was completely sold. Any dress with pockets is a no brainer-it's coming home with me! I wanted to go for a completely authentic vibe to the era, so I donned a headscarf in a way I haven't really worn before. People look at you so funny in church when you wear a scarf like this! They're like, "I can't tell if she's a really well dressed 65 year old, or if she's a young person with weird style..." Story of my life :)
I really loved the combo of peachy pink and bright yellow though, who would have ever thought of that combination could work? Certainly not me, until now!
Alright, so funny story about this photoshoot. I always take pictures outside my apartment complex, at the risk of being seen by passerby's. I never thought however that people could be watching me from atop their balconies! So some lady is out on her balcony smoking and apparently just watching my husband taking photos of me on the sidewalk and she shouts, "I love your outfit-what's your inspiration?" She said it in just this really weird way that made me not sure how to answer her so I said, "Thanks! Um...the 1960's? I really love vintage fashion." And she said, "Oh, well you look like you're going to a wedding, I've never seen a dress that color before!"
Haha, I am so socially awkward you guys that I just nodded and pretty much ran inside because I was so embarrassed. Then I spent the next five minutes asking Sean if I was socially awkward, which we both knew was YES OMGOODNESS FOR SURE.
So, the picture down below is me trying to interact with that lady on the balcony. Oi vey.
Well Dahlings, Sean and I are headed off to my hometown for a grad party this weekend! I am really excited as I haven't seen my parents in what seems a good long while and I am thankful for the excuse to go home and hug my mama :)
So, have a blissful weekend everyone!
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.
