A Parrot Necklace

Once while I was in Oklahoma, my family went through my Aunt Linda's extensive jewelry collection. She makes jewelry for fun so it took hours. Anyway, we ran across this parrot necklace she wore in the 80s and we all had a good laugh at its silliness. I asked if I could take it back with me to see if I could work it into an outfit or two. This is my first attempt!

Pretending Its the Forties

I promise that the stagnation of this past week has been due to being on vacation with family in Tulsa, Oklahoma rather than pure laziness! I'll have pictures from the trip later but for now, all I shall share is this adorable vintage dress that my aunt gave me while I was there. I know that it is reminiscent of the forties, but I don't know nearly enough about fashion history to pinpoint which decade was remembering it. So instead I shall simply do my hair in the fashion of the memory!

Puffy Knots

This morning, I woke up with the grossest, poofiest hair ever. I had curled it the day before and then slept on it creating the epitome of bed head! What is one to do with such poof? Make a giant bouffant of course! I wish I could have my hair like this everyday; it makes me feel like I am living vintage. Oh geez, I feel sure that I am going to become that eccentric old lady with fluffy hair when I'm older.

Feelin' the Oldy Style

I've really just loved this dress since the day I bought it. I bought it from a vintage store and I have absolutely no idea what time period its from but it certainly makes me feel like I'm existing in one from quite some time ago when I wear it. The simple silhouette, the modist length, the delicacy that was once so valued in a woman. I specifically felt this old-fashioned sense with my oxfords and (as my mother has since coined it) Lucille Ball Hair.
