I can't help feeling like I'm flipping though a vintage magazine and looking at clothing advertisements when I look at these photos. Haha. I wasn't expecting them to look all old timey, but they just...do. O_o o_O I really do like how these turned out, though. I wanted to do this dress justice. It is so beautiful!
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I love what this dress brings out in me. I love the way I feel when I wear it. I feel enveloped in the past. I wonder what kind of woman wore this dress. What was she like? What did she value? Did this dress make her just as happy as it makes me? I sincerely hope so. =)
I'm sure you noticed that I carried a satchel as well as a picnic basket. Admittedly, the picnic basket was just for added effect. I purchased it from a sweet girl in my swap group for a very reasonable price. It's unlined and rickety, but it's my first picnic basket, so I will love it until it inevitably meets its demise. Actually, I have very special plans for it, next month. If you stick around, you may discover more. ;P
I feel like this dress is the kind of dress that deserves to go on a picnic. Unfortunately, it was windy and overcast, so a picnic was just out of the question. Hence, I brought my trusty satchel along and, later on, my partner and I enjoyed some coffee and people watching at one of my usual java joints.
A hard rain fell soon after we had made ourselves comfortable upon window seats at the coffee house. There's really nothing better than sipping hot beverages and watching the rain. Twas a good day. <3
Who knew a dress could make me this happy, though? Seriously!? It is an upside down world. O_o
I hope you enjoyed this final installment in my month long frock challenge! <3
