Dress & Pin: Estate Sale
Y'all be proud of me. I finally did it. I took outfit pictures in public! And I lived to tell about it! It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but I did kind of pick a special place to do it. When I took photography in college (which was like 10 years ago, gah...) I did a project taking pictures in downtown Sheffield, Alabama, which is where this is. It's changed a little in the last ten years. They've put in some new sidewalks and a little landscaping. However, it still has an eerie ghost town feeling to it. There's abandoned stores and factories, and there's just something about it that I find incredibly beautiful. I think I really do just like old things, whether it's clothes, homes, or towns. Even if old means rusted and falling apart, there's just something intriguing about stuff with a history.
I got this dress and pin at the same estate sale. I love that this dress has an old 50s factory worker girl look to it and fits just right. And how could you not love a wooden pin with mushrooms painted on it!
