dress: 1930's silk chiffon
shoes: navy 60's t-straps
purse: vintage
belt: vintage
*listening to: Neko Case Middle Cyclone "Prison Girls"

I wish you could see all of the wonderful little details on this dress like the seaming on the front and the ruching on the neck and the little snaps that fasten the side and shoulder. This has been hanging in my closet for ages waiting for spring. Well, spring has not quite sprung but I just couldn't wait another day to wear it.

Thanks so much for all of your comments!

Juliet: We’re always on the lookout for pretty places to shoot photos. This was an old church with a cemetery that we just happened to drive by.

Copperoranges: The dress has held up very well considering its age but it’s pretty delicate. I always cringe a little pulling it over my head, afraid I’m going tear it. I love it so much I want to wear it everyday but I think it would fall apart.

yasemin: Yes, it’s a cemetery. It wasn’t scary at all but really pretty and peaceful.

What a lovely 30's dress! I've been searching for one myself, but all the ones I stumble upon are either too small or more $$ than I want to pay... oh well, yours is gorgeous!
