I do like the red, white, and blue color combo. How nice you have such a healthy lilac tree (I never had any luck with them there). Don't they smell just divine?

I fecking LOVE this outfit, sweetheart! I love red,white and blue anyways, but this frock is perfect!
I am useless at joining these linky things, and I'd have to post everyday to manage them all, so I don't mean offense when I don't join in!

The cotton dress, the vintage metal flower brooch and your longer locks are the my favorite parts!

I found your blog via VaVoom Vintage. I was asking about blogs of 40+ vintage fashion and I ended up here.
So - you don't look like "40". You look young and sexy. I am 39 and I feel sexier than when I was 20, far from being old and dead. So thanks for our blog.
Also - I got a few retro inspired dresses and I was second guessing if I look like a fool and if I should just wear "age appropriate" clothes. It turned out I got the same dress as you from eshakti. I call it Popeys dress :-)
You look amazing in it! I am so happy to see it on someone my age.
