It's been a whirlwind around here for the last month but I did get a photo of me in my Thanksgiving dress! It was pure luck that on Tuesday the 26th I stopped into my favorite thrift store just in time to spot this deadstock beauty! The dress has gathers at the shoulders (very 1940s-ish), a nice V neckline and a very full skirt. Even better - it's marked a Tall so the sleeves actually fit the length of my arms - a rarity in vintage dresses.
I paired the dress with my 70s lace-up Frye boots that I purchased about 6 years ago on ebay. Wore my hair in a flip and was ready to party!
James and I spend Thanksgiving with our dear friends Pete and Julianne and their enormous extended families. We brought green bean casserole and a rum cake - items that are requested every year!
|By the look on my face I am clearly giving my husband photography instructions!|
For those of you who love wearing dresses there is a new challenge on Facebook - Advent of the Dress. Loads of vintage sellers and aficionados are participating, but it isn't limited to vintage dresses only - modern dresses are more than welcome. The challenge is to wear a dress every day for the month of December and snap a picture! Stop by and take a gander (and check out lots of great vintage shops) or, even more fun....join in and add a dress a day from your wardrobe.
