|Bursting with Blossom: Spring makes for seriously fun dress ups attempts.|
Spring is my favorite season, especially this time of year. I pull all my floral frocks out, and pretty much layer on whatever springtime folly I can think of- usually in the form of a ridiculous hat. By which I mean a vintage (usually floral) one. I'm not sure why, other than it's FUN.
Which you'd never guess by how seriously serious I am in these photos. I swear to blog, I wasn't meaning to mad dog the camera.
|Why so angry, little fashion blogger? Somebody steal your pose?|
SERIOUSLY. Who am I glowering at here? LMAO! Here lies the down side of taking your own photos, which is an act of the absurd in itself. You sometimes forget to look like you were having fun. Good to know that I've got my "Fierce Face" down pat. Gonna come in handy, uh, someday, I'm sure.
The outfit is all secondhand sourced, except for the socks- which I've been wearing for a few years now, so they sort of count as a #SHF item. The dress was bought from Value Village for under $12, and it looked brand new, a designer find by Colors by Benneton. Fits me to a T, too, which says something, as I struggle constantly with my short but thick waist and long torso. The jacket was a splurge, I paid $20 for it at my local Goodwill, which has crazy HIGH prices for a "charity" thrift store. It too was brand new and previously unworn. I've had it for a couple of years, but only just recently really saw its true potential in my Seattle based adventures. It's a plastic rain jacket but the black lace texture adds a bit of poetry to its practical applications.
The hat, precious little vintage topper that it is, has been trying to find a good home since I started re-selling vintage. You can see a previous photo session of it here. And for the time being, this springtime topper is available HERE. (Remember ROSEBUD gets you 10% off)
