OH EM GEE OUTFIT POST

If you've been following my blog for a while you know how rare the outfit posts are. I'm not usually wearing vintage (because of that pesky sellers guilt) and I'm not usually looking all that cute. But today I just felt like looking cute(ish) so I threw on a vintage inspired dress and my new t straps and well..wrote this post..ha-ha.
I didn't know this dress had an asymmetric hem until I got it home (I tried it on without taking off my capris). I probably wouldn't have bought it because I hate showing my knees.
Forgive the pale lips, I couldn't find the shade of red I wanted to wear.
dress from Show Pony
shoes from LisaZain on Etsy (@vintageshoelove on twitter) I was her 1500th sale! I hope I can get there some day!
anchor necklace gift from brother in law


oh, on a side note you should read this blog post from Huzzah! Vintage. Its really incredible what some stores can get away with...

You look cute! And I think you should stop having sellers guilt. Make some sort of deal with yourself. 9 things for your store and 1 for you! Itll be good for your soul haha.

That dress was so great and
it was made for you, darling.

Should I make the requisite 'bees knees' comment?

Oh Olygirl I LOVE them tee-hee. I'm such a sucker for anything nautical (especially navy and red). I want every one I see!

what a great color and pattern for you! You look wonderful :) I also love the tie string at the neckline - I just shot a dress with one for the shop and loved playing around with it - it made me feel fancy :)
