I've Got the Hoots for You

 Is that not the cutest mug you ever did see? I saw it in All Things Possible, and it had to come home with me. It's adorable and it has owls on it, and owls are my are puns. This mug is just perfect.  

Speaking of perfect, I bought my first actual 1950's dress the other day from the sweetest lady at this antique shop in Downtown Murfreesboro. I saw it 2 weeks before I bought it, but had no money, and I thought it would be gone by the time I came back. Sure enough it was still hanging on the rack exactly as it was the first time I visited, and I quickly snatched it up. The lady who owns the antique shop said the woman who it used to belong to grew up riding horses and was very well off. She said she drove a Porsche to high school if that gives you a margin on just how well off. I love the quality and color of the fabric, and it hits me so perfectly above the knee. I made sure to wear my vintage slip underneath that was given to me by my grandmother, and I also adorned the dress with one of her mother's old broaches. The only thing that isn't 50's or 50's inspired is my hair. I've been running around, and it was much too hot in my apartment for rollers, so I just put it up in a bun and went on with my day. I will have to pin curl my hair another day and do a tutorial when I have more time. People love tutorials.

  2. Be still my heart! This dress is you! What a lovely look, enhanced by the beautiful slip underneath. Live the dream, Sweetie!

  3. You are amazingly adorable! I am crazy about this loo. What a gorgeous dress and I love that you're wearing your grandma's slip.

  4. That mug is cute, and speaking of cute, look at you! That dress is a perfect fit on you and suits you so well! I would have a massive smile on u face if I scored such a beautiful dress too. The slip is lovely too, row! (row like, meow... Not row your boat... Its a compliment!)

  5. WOW Jess, this is stunning. The dress looks like it was made for you, what a great find!
    Thanks for you comment, I am so sorry to hear of your losses. It seems these things always happen together. Unfortuantely I am having a repeat of 2011 with another family member. In sad times it is so important to be kind to yourself, I hope you are doing okay xx

  6. This looks amazing on you! It all fits together so well. Wish I had long hair again so I could do that hairdo ><


Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment =]
