Veils and Sunflares

50's Dress, a clothing trade w/Kristine
Tights from Kohls
Shoes from Inseam
Veil, a gift from my mother

If you haven't figured it out yet, I have taken control over Sally Jane Vintage... *maniacal laugh* OK, really, Jennifer sweetly invited me to guest-blog for a day, and of course I snagged the chance as soon as I could... My name is Aya, and I run a little blog entitled Strawberry Koi.

It's amazing how much shorter the days have gotten. Having a little one, it's sometimes a tad difficult to take photos, and we (my photographer/hubby and I) love to go during the evening after we've completed our tasks for the day... but it seems like daylight comes in at about 5:45 anymore and pretty much wrecks the whole idea! Ah well, it also means Fall is at its best, where you can get away with light cardigans and tights and be ok... which is perfect!

...I can see you asking if I truly wore this veil with my outfit... Or at least I would, but no, it was just a bit of fun for the photos, and pulling it out of the closest after 5 1/2 years was incredibly nostalgic. My mother actually made it as a wedding gift for me back in '05... and I still love it to pieces. I like to picture having a daughter one day, wearing it for her big day... we'll see!

Anyway, it was a pleasure posting here, thank you so much Jennifer! Dear me, speaking of Fall and what not... do you realize Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS are right around the corner?? Ugh, I'm in trouble..

To Aya: These photos are amazing. I love the veil. That is so nice that your mom made that veil!!! She's very talented! it is gorgeous. Maybe if you have a daughter indeed she'll want to wear it! I guess you'll have to wait and see! I wore my mother's wedding veil, and always dreamed to when I was little, so who knows! Did you actually wear this veil when you married, or did you get it as a gift for afterwards?

I am looking so forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas!! I already have my Thanksgiving and Christmas dresses. haha.

Once again, you look gorgeous in these shots and this dress is pretty as can be on you!
