Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio...

dress: Urban Outfitters
tights: AA
shoes: 30's oxfords
hat & purse: vintage
*listening to: Joy Division Substance "Transmission"

It was one of those days where it was just warm enough to have either bare arms or bare legs, but not both. Of course I've been dying to get out of my tights but even more so I've been dying to wear this dress. I reminds me a lot of the pieces from the Lover collection that I'm so fond of. I'm still looking for a Lover-like straw boater hat to no avail. Anyone have any luck with that?

I've seen a bunch of boaters on ebay and maybe some on etsy too. The vintage ebay ones are pretty expensive, but there are new ones that are fairly cheap. I think I'll just have to get lucky at a shop... I have such bad luck with hats not fitting my head, I can't take the internet risk!

Festooned Pontoon has a lovely boater on etsy. Maybe this one is right up your alley.

I haven't seen any boater hats that are really just right! Pretty dress, of course.

There is definitely one on etsy. It was about $20ish dollars if I remember correctly. Such a lovely dress.
