The Friendly Skies.

1950's Howdy Doody scarf (Mom's)
1970's Red, White & Blue dress (Friended, thanks Lea!)
1970's Platforms (Thrifted, $6)

Hi!  I am about to acost you with a large amount of photos: brace yourself. 
This dress is one of the many things my friend Lea brought into the shop- and I immediately tried it on, and to my surprise, it actually fit!  I did have to adjust the armholes a smidge, but other than that, it's the perfect summertime dress. 

(Purse from the store- couldn't resist matching...)

I had my first sewing fail last night.  I've been sewing a crop top from a 1950's pattern, that did start out as a size too small, but promised that adding an inch would solve the issue.  Well, it looks great, and fits, but is more like a bra/bathing suit than a top.  :(.  The fail comes from the fabric I wasted, and man, I really wanted to wear it!  Shoot. 

My neck looks crazy in this picture, haha. 

How amazing is this Howdy Doody scarf?!?  It is my mom's from when she was little- and thank god she let me borrow it, because I love it :).  It totally surprises me that more people don't know what the "Howdy Doody" show was; do you guys remember? 

I've been going back and forth with the idea of short hair for a couple weeks now, and am waiting for just the right impulsive moment to do it :).  Wouldn't life me perfect if we could just force our hair to grow at will?  Bob one day, mermaid hair the next, ahhhh, dreams. 

Jimmy told me I look like a flight attendant from the 70's.  Awesome!  Sounds good to me. 

I was watching 'Slums of Beverly Hills' recently, and it of course made me miss my Natasha Lyonne.  She is one of my all time favorite actresses, and I have coveted that hair from the first time I laid eyes on it :). 


  1. Uhm.. stewardess...stewardess..I need a pillow.

  2. I love that dress. You look like a pinup in her classy dinner wear. And yes, that is a compliment.
