GLAD PLAID.  To celebrate the recent happy nuptials of some friends, the couple asked the attendees to wear "bright + colorful clothing,"  something that gave us joy to wear. The first dress I thought to put on for the occasion, was, of course, a vintage plaid.

#SECONDHANDFIRST: 100% Secondhand Sources, 100% Rosebud.

For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn to the play of the lines woven  to make the many variations of this pattern, and can't help but feel in my personal element while I wear it. I chose items that I would feel comfortable in all day in the out of door,  and that were as fanciful and fun as can be. 

I definitely felt in my element amongst the cool woods and quiet of the garden where the ceremony was held, and spending time with the happy newly-weds was a wonderful reminder of how love can be such a beautiful bloom.

Now Wearing: 
  • handmade whimsy using vintage materials
  • vintage goldtone brooches, various, thrifted
  • vintage green, red + black cotton 1950s plaid dress, Trove Vintage Boutique
  • vintage gingham half apron, thrifted
  • pre-loved black leather platform oxford brogues,  thrifted

Gorgeous dress, gorgeous photos, gorgeous you! That's sort of a madras plaid, isn't it? Anne knows these things.

What an amazing location! And I bet the wedding was super special.

Lovely shot of you against the backdrop of trees! I think that is such a good idea to tell your wedding guests to wear something that brings them joy.

"To wear something that brings them joy" should be the dresscode at every party. Love the last Picture!
