A Petticoat and a Bridge


This vintage-loving gal finally got her hands on an essential garment to any retro wardrobe-a petticoat! I've worn it a couple of times now and it is just the most fabulous feeling to swish around like a princess for a day. I thought this 1950's dress (another yellow look!) was the perfect piece to try out a full-skirted look, along with this fur hat from my shop! I had a lot of fun posing  and trying to channel a 1950's magazine shoot or something. I think if I could go back in time, that would be my activity of choice- a vogue photoshoot around 1950 sounds about perfect :)


I really love this hat. It has a gorgeous spiral design with a satin bow adorning the back of it. It is so perfect for a vintage inspired outfit, but would look just as wonderful with a modern ensemble as an accent piece! You can check it out in my Etsy Shop here!

I'm working on some blog changes for  the next couple of weeks, so I'll hopefully be rolling that out next week! I want something that is more professional and a more consistent schedule to keep me on track.  I'm excited for that!

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

God Bless,
KJA

Oh, I want a petticoat!!! So jealous. You look SO pretty, and just seeing you swish in the pictures makes me happy, haha! There's nothing better than a twirly skirt.
I don't think I'd be able to let go of that hat if I had it! It's so pretty!

You never cease to look like you've just sprung out of a vogue 1950's editorial, Katie! Ah, this outfit is so lovely! I think the yellow color is so refreshing in front of that white, white snow. And how poofy and dramatic the skirt of that dress is... wow! Too neat. :D

Oooh, a new blog layout! I'm wishing you the best in that. I'm about halfway through making a new one, too. I still gotta make a new header... but I'm at a loss with what... good luck to both of us? :D

that bridge location is SO amazing, as is your petticoat! i love how full it made your dress, and the small peeks of tulle are really cute. and don't get me started on your fur hat- i've been kind of wanting one all winter!
