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.
From Karla Spetic.
I’m a sad American when it comes to my red, white, and blue wardrobe. All I had to wear that wasn’t too painfully patriotic yesterday was a white v-neck shirt with some stars and stripes on it that I bought from Old Navy a couple years back. I think if I was even wearing the outfit that some child was forced to model above, I’d still be doing better.
I decided to see if I could find some classy 4th of July goods from back in the day. Next year, I think I want to host a dinner party for the 4th and I want us all to wear classically American vintage goods and use vintage dinnerware and everyone read a passage from the Encyclopedia about their favorite part of American history.
For such an event:
Vintage Avon earrings. $4.50! Available from Ecrater. Perfect accessory.
This doesn’t SCREAM the 4th of July unless you know its the 4th of July. Nice nod to the skyrockets in the sky, methinks. $42. Available from Etsy seller, Marie’s Vintage.
Vintage 60s Red, White, and Blue pumps. And in my size!! $42 from Etsy seller Nick and Nessies. I could pair these with —not the dress above—but definitely a navy blue pencil skirt and white blouse. Or even short-sleeved cardigan.
Vintage cake stand! For sweet little cuppy-cakes or anything of that nature! From the Tea Corner, $34.95.
Vintage red/white/blue and some splashes of yellow tablecloth. So much fun! Available from Etsy seller Call Me Jasper, $59. I want to buy this for my regular everyday table, honestly.
Tomorrow, Aaron and I are heading around town to do some junk-storing before he goes to work. Let’s hope we find some goodies. Oh— and belated Happy Fourthy!
