I've been meaning to take some photos of my favorite vintage finds as of late but just haven't gotten around to it. I guess these will have to suffice for now as they incorporate two of my most favorite finds. I've been searching high and low for a vintage umbrella. All the ones I'd found up until now were a bit masculine and I wanted a pretty girly one. This one's just perfect! It was hot and sunny on our afternoon walk and came in handy to stay nice and cool. I've also been craving cotton sundresses from the 50's - 60's that are fitted at the waist. I had a very specific look in mind and was so surprised to actually run across just what I was looking for. I had to take it in a bit through the bust (as usual) and took a couple of inches off the bottom hem. I used the extra fabric to make a little belt to tie in the back.
