Hey there kittens! I'm so excited to share this outfit swap with you because it's absolutley one of my all time favorites! Hannah of The Braided Bandit was kind enough to let me try out this very cute little vintage dress. I was so delighted to try it on and was wonderfully surprized how nicely it fit me.... you never know with these types of dresses. I loved the cut and the color (it looks like a creamsicle) so much I decided to play it up a bit by adding more color. 

It's always a little tricky re-mixing clothes and making other people's clothes "your own". I actually ended up tucking the collar inside the dress and throwing on a scarf that had the same color peach in it. The scarf also had colbolt blue in it and I decided to add a cardigan over it as well. Ta da!

I've been into "big hair" lately. If you've been visiting my blog Nothing but a Pigeon you'll see my hair reaching all sorts of heights. Ha! Seriously.... I'm obsessed with backcombing and Joan Holloway, Christina Hendrick's character from "Mad Men".

Nothing completes an ensemble like knee highs and a pair of colorful wedges. I've also be experimenting with makeup lately... hence the very pink lips.
 It's been fun and I love playing dress up.

In other fun news I finally submitted a Proposal to a publishing company in regards to my crochet taxidermy. Hopefully I get a response back soon... they say it can take up to two months based on the amount of inquiries they recieve. Eeeeeep! I'm on the edge of my seat. I've never submitted a Proposal before in my life so I'm really nervous, excited and anxious. 

I'm also quite proud of myself as well. I've been putting off sending in my Proposal because I was so scared but what's the worst thing that could happen ya know? You can't expect things to just fall in your lap... you have to take the initiative and actually get out there and make things happen for yourself. It's kind of a BIG deal. Here's to hoping for good news!!!

  1. Gah....LOVE! You remind me so much of Marlo Thomas in That Girl. Always digging the mod/retro vibes in your outfits. I'm always kicking myself that I didn't ever wear that dress myself before listing it in my Etsy shop - but I was so happy that it went to a good home with Hannah and that it has been swapped around :-)

    1. I didn't know it was yours before it became Hannah's! Ha ha... that's so funny. Well... it did find a good home.

  2. You style this so well- got that 60s vibe so well. Also, I realized, we don't get many headshots from you and this one is so pretty!

  3. You look SO darling, I actually really love it with the royal blue, would never have thought to pair them together!

  4. Love this 60s inspired look, it's fun seeing that dress layered with other colors!

  5. I love how you styled it. It's such a 60s mod look, and the bold, contrasting colors and knee socks work so well to amp that up.

  6. Thanks sweet ladies! I really had fun with this look.
