Hello everyone!

It is hot, hot hot out! Whew! It was my goal to get up early this morning and take some outfit pictures before it got too hot out. I got out fairly early, but let me tell you: not quite early enough! This dress was definitely not made to wear in 90 degree summer heat. It probably wasn't wise for me to wear knee socks either. The sweat was literally just pouring off of me and I felt so sticky and gross while shooting these pictures. Believe it or not my hair was actually really curly this morning when I first set out. I was probably only five minutes into shooting when all of the curls fell totally flat and frizzy! Ah, oh well. :)

I've actually had this dress stashed away since March when I bought it at a church rummage sale. It was super long, but I had my talented seamstress shorten it for me and it looks much better! I'm not a really big fan of the puffy 1980's sleeves, but hey: beggars can't be choosers. The dress is actually a very vibrant purple color but I played around with the coloring of the pictures so they would look more vintage. Oh, and just another little quick note about the dress: it seems to be handmade!

P.S. I have something very exciting to show you all later! :)
