country ROSE

"I once had a rose named after me, and I was very flattered.  But I wasn't pleased when I read the description in the catalogue: no good in bed, but fine up against a wall."
                                                                                 - Eleanor Roosevelt                          

Day three on wearing a vintage apron as a top. This little number is most special, most likely made in the 1970's. The label reads:  The San Francisco Shirtworks, established 1870". It has an additional label next to the hip that says simply inside an embroidered red heart: "I love you." 

It's an adorable little apron, and I do mean little as it's rather snug against my womanly frame. But it's got those sweet butterfly sleeves, gingham trim and a county-charmed floral print on chambray, all elements loved by the Rosebud.  I LOVE YOU, indeed.

(Expect to see this item listed in the shop shortly. Comment me if you're interested in buying it.)

More '70's charm abound in my "Indian Bingo" braided necklace, which of course is worn as a bracelet. Red, white and blue are my winning colors. And here's yet another vintage broach in my vintage pin collection; can't get enough of these florals!

Now Wearing:
  • Vintage apron smock, yard sale
  • American Rag red/beige stripe t-shirt, Macy's
  • "Indian Bingo" beaded necklace, thrifted 
  • Vintage flower broach, thrifted
  • "Skinny" jeans (dark rinse), Target
  • Red/White/Blue bucket bag, Butt Ugly
  • EtniesPlus, Blueberry print wedges, thrifted (Goodwill)
