out to sea


I won't keep you long this time, as I have a horrible migraine. Brain function at diminished capacity... Probably wake up blind tomorrow... Obviously a hypochondriac.





This is another dress that belonged to my husband's grandmother. You can read the full story here. It's one of my favorites and I only wish it wasn't so fragile.


Happy Friday!

Catie, thank you so much for your recent comment! It means so much to me! Yeah, we kind of are old farts in the fashion world...oh well.

I think that a sweater over a dress is one of my favorite styling tricks these days, and your striped sweater really jazzes up the dress. I like how minimalist/mod you've gone with your color combos recently. Keep it up!!
