What I'm Wearing




dress: vintage (Fairfax Flea Market)
shoes: vintage (Salvation Army, PA)
purse: vintage (America's Thrift, B'ham, AL)

This little vintage dress is one of my all time favorites! If for no other reason than it's made up entirely of bandannas sewn together and trimmed with white rick-rack. Oh, how I miss the Fairfax Flea Market. I used to walk there almost every Sunday when I lived in LA. Yet another reason to wish I was there this weekend. :)

Wow these photos have a filmic quality about them, bottom left hand corner reminds me a little bit of a Bill Henson photograph.
Lovely.

Oh! The back is so sexy and unexpected. I remeber what you said about dresses' backs... :) So true when it comes to this one.

agree with dotti, sexy in the back, and nice red bag!

I've been dreaming of a dress that's very proper in the front but has a wow factor in the back, and this one's making me want to find my perfect dress even more. The bandanna print makes it extra unique, and what girl can resist rick-rack?
