Rose Earrings: Maternal Great Grandmother's
Red Beads: Paternal Great Grandmother's
Ruby Ring: Gift from Hubby
Belt: Local Leather Shop
Vintage Dress: Thrifted
Petticoat: Self Made
Purple Suede Heels: Dillards (clearance)
This dress cost a whole $0.15, yes you read that right, 15 cents!!! It was bag day at the local thrift shop. Oh yeah! Whatever I could stuff in, even sticking out the top, for $3.
I snatched this dress up thinking I would refashion it. Imagine my surprise when I got home and it fit and looked great as it I hadn't checked the size or even held it up to my body at the shop!
Alright, my hat, this was its maiden voyage. I "made" it a year ago, but had yet to find the right outfit to wear it with. It was a "bow" on top of my birthday present last year. I told the friend it came from that it was going to become a hat. She said, "I thought you might do something like that with it." :o) Yes, my friends know me well.
I really wanted to do a twirl or two, but we were taking these photos on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant we ate at after church. Oh, and said restaurant is downtown. :o)
