Hello there! I had a very eventful weekend; Friday night I went out for drinks with three of my friends, Saturday Bob and I went out to dinner and for drinks to a local brew pub, where we sat outside in the warm, mostly sunny weather, and today my mom and I went antiquing in Adamstown. I got a vintage tropical print dress and a plastic 1950's snowman.
Tuesday evening I'll be going to Panera with a couple of friends, one who moved to Florida, and who I haven't seen in about a year and a half, and after that Bob and I will be visiting my grandmother with my parents.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my beloved Trashy Diva Red Waterlilies 1940's dress that I got back in September. This dress gets a lot of wear. I accessorized it with some 1940's items; the telephone cord purse is new to me and is from the 40's, the shoes are 40's reproductions, and the necklace is vintage, and probably from the 40's, too.
I don't have a ton of 1940's items, as I definitely gravitate towards 1950's aesthetics, but I do really treasure the 40's pieces I do have; the vintage and repro ones. There truly were some gorgeous prints in the 40's, but the cut of the dresses and skirts was a lot less full than the 50's, which is why I don't have more 40's pieces.
I had wanted a telephone cord purse for a long time, but held out until very recently. I think
they're really special, but I was surprised to see how tiny this one was! I hadn't read the dimensions before I ordered it, and I can't fit much at all in it. I wasn't going to use it as an every day purse anyway, so it's okay.
