I've been spending so much time lately scouring Etsy and Pinterest for vintage frocks and looking through pages of retro hair styles that polka dots and pin curls seemed like an obvious match. I'm always a fan of dots, but I was getting a bit tired of this dress until I styled it more like a pinafore. I think putting a blouse under a dress or sweater always brings new life to a look. I do love my collars.
I picked out this brooch and these earrings from one of my mom's old jewelry boxes. I'm going to make an effort to wear brooches more often--I never realized how much they can add to a look! Plus it's so easy to find great vintage brooches at the thrift store. They used to be such popular accessories and now they've sadly been neglected by the mainstream. Hopefully I can pick up a few more when I go to the Memorial Day thrift sales.
Even if I stay home all day, I'm trying to still put myself together nicely. It helps stimulate my creativity and my productivity, so these posts should encourage me to get stuff done!
