In Photos : Young Mary’s Birthday Bonanza & All The Beautiful People

I was privileged enough to host a birthday bonanza and show at the Buffalo Rodeo home earlier this month — and more privileged to have so many wild and beautiful friends.  Oh, and that the talented photographer Justin Blodgett was there to capture them for me. 

Why YMR loves this:  He IS Fall.  It’s almost as if he and Nature talked about their outfits before they went out.

Why YMR loves this:  His expression, followed by realizing he’s holding a glass of bee…water?

Why YMR loves this: Her face is naturally beautiful.

Why YMR likes this: Backward ball cap.  And these are troubled youth, surely.

Why YMR loves this: It was my birthday!  I’m holding the beer, not because I drank any, but because it matched my outfit.

Why YMR loves this: Suspenders. Patterns. Marlee’s (right) jacket. Style Icons, the both of them.

Why YMR loves this:   Their whole LOOK.  The sweet couple behind Buffalo Rodeo.  

Why YMR loves this: Everyone should be less afraid of mixing brights and just wearing them in the winter!

Why YMR loves this:  No kidding, this guy is one of my favorite dressed men in this old college town.  And he’s also a super-talented member of Morning Teleportation.  Great style comes from great brainz.

SWOON: Red & Vintage

SWOON is a Young Mary’s Record Series created for quick posts dedicated to things that made me go “ahh” -  Today’s SWOON is RED and Vintage. 

I’ve spent the greater part of the last 48 hours hemming and hawing over this dress after having found it on Etsy.  It’s small — and I’m small — but the measurements are right in that special zone where I *could* fit in it or it might just be a *tad* too snug.  And I’m scared to take the $165 risk.

That being said, it’s chiffon!  And full lined!  With a black metal zipper!   And so beautiful — even if sharing it, takes it from the e-window where I gaze lovingly at it, I share it anyway.

Just gorgeous.  Swooooon.  To get this dress for yourself or for someone else extra small with great style or for a blogger you really like that swoons over it (nudge, nudge!) Hit the link: HERE to view this on Calendar Girl Vintage's Etsy Store.

Inspiration Dress of The Week!

Don’t be alarmed if you see me without much on my bottom half, like so, in the spring.  I’d love to see this dress in a baby blue or pale pink and matched with some sweet little ankle socks and strappy heels.
