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 :).
