summer lovin'







Vintage dress - gift from Angie

My friend Angie recently invited Helena, Kim, and me to go shopping through her vast vintage collection she was getting rid of, and I ended up walking away with two bags full of beautiful dresses and blouses. This dress was an immediate favorite; it's a perfect breezy cotton maxi for balmy summer days. Shopping is great, but shopping in a friend's closet is even better. Thank you, Angie, for the new [to me] vintage lovelies!

  26. This is a beautiful dress!! I wish that I had access to some of my grandmother's clothing. She had some really cute dresses from back in the day. I used to play dress up in some of those outfits she had and now... I don't know where they are. :(
