What I Wore: Spring Flowers

Dress: Estate Sale (vintage)
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Payless

I remember finding this dress at a wonderful estate sale and being amazed that it was so old.  It's so funny how something from nearly 50 years ago fits in perfectly with today's fashions.  Whenever I get around to repairing my sewing machine, I want to use this dress as a base to make more dresses.  The lines are simple and it has pockets, so it's the perfect dress!
As you can see, I've been sticking with the purple hair lately.  It's certainly my favorite and I love that the dye that I use (N'Rage- can be purchased at Sally Beauty Supply) is demi-permenant, meaning it doesn't wash out after 2 showers like some brands.  In fact, the only reason I've had to re-dye my hair is to cover my roots.
Is it just me or does everyone else feel super awkward posing for pictures, especially when you're using a tripod?  I feel like Ricky Bobby.


  1. Ahhh That dress! So freaking pretty & it looks AMAZING on you :)

  2. Wow -- gorgeous dress! I too feel totally awkward when taking photos. Well, I feel awkward almost all the time, but especially awkward in front of the camera.

    1. Well, I have to say I'm pretty much awkward all the time too! Trying to pose for a camera and "model" is just way out of my comfort zone!

  3. You look great!

    hahahahha! I love Ricky Bobby!

    1. I'm just a Will Ferrell fan in general. I can't wait until the new Anchorman movie is out!

  4. Oh, wow - you really hit the estate sale jackpot with that dress! I always dream of finding awesome vintage dresses at estate sales and then I get there and all that's for sale is bad art, old appliances and dated decor items or something. That dress is great!

  5. You look beautiful! That dress is soo pretty - and with your hair, eek! Thanks for posting about anime by the way, I haven't watched any in forever but I realized I missed it! :)
