the night is young and so am i

song of the day: ' the safety dance' by men without hats
this is such an awesome song! for some reason i use lines from it all the time. isaiah likes to dance and and play around and i'll just tell him 'we can dance if we want to.' i don't know, maybe that's only funny to me.
i bought this dress in louisiana from a salvation army. it was once longer and i cut it maybe a touch too short. then i had to hem it and there goes another inch. yikes! oh well. i tried to compensate for the short hemline with the flat shoes. i think it worked out okay. and since it's linen the thing got so wrinkly! i kinda look a mess in the pictures. man, two strikes against this dress but i'm still wearing it. i like the sleeves. i have a thing for cool sleeves, you know. and i think the color makes me look tan.
isn't my clutch totally awesome?! i buy vintage clothes from people who bring them in my shop sometimes and a lady brought this macrame clutch in and immediately knew i couldn't sell it! it's in amazing condition love me some 70s goodness. all right kids, busy day. sees ya later!
dress-vintage, salvation army

this neutral beige colored dress is BEAUTIFUL! i didn't even notice it was wrinkled until you pointed it out - i think it's a testament to how great your photos are!


Rosie said...

The sleeves are indeed awesome and that clutch is super fly!

Amanda said...

The color does make you look really tan, it's great for you! I'm usually not a sleeves person, but those sleeves on the dress are unique and pretty cute :]

I do not blame you one bit for keeping that clutch. It's way too amazing!

The clutch is awesome. The dress didn't seem too short to me--it's lovely. And linen is SUPPOSED to be wrinkly. I swear it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that song.

Wow, I was not expecting the flat oxford with this, but the style, the color- everything is just so perfect with that dress.

I love the two-toned brown, and shally try my hardest not to rip it off. Immediately. :)
