I have to be honest with you, I looked at my recent pictures of this dress and they did not do the color justice! I ended up wearing it again for Easter Sunday and took some more pictures for you that display the colors better. I also had hoped to show it off in a… Continue reading Rolling With It: Easter Dress Up
As the days are getting warmer, I’m realizing that I got my second job when the weather had already turned cold, and I am not quite equipped for working full time in warm temperatures! It’s the same problem I had in the fall, except with warm weather clothing instead of cold! Sigh. C’est la vie.… Continue reading Sunny Days are Here Outfit
St. Louis has been playing at being spring lately, and it’s been driving me bonkers! We have some low lows, ice storms, a little bit of snow, and then it rapidly swings back to almost 70 degree weather. Winter down here doesn’t seem to know the rules of true winter like the north did. It… Continue reading Bright Days of Winter Outfit: A Forties Day Dress
So, if you’ve been following along, you’ll find that my favorite decade is by far the 40s. I like the simplicity of it, and the make do and mend attitude. But some aspects of the forties carried on into other decades, including the fifties. I’ll never be someone who rocks a huge skirt, but there… Continue reading A Fifties Outfit: Turquoise Dress and Sweater

My parents are here visiting, so I wanted to get this out early while I could! Here it is though, at long last, Simplicity 3688! Even though… Continue reading A Swingy Fall Skirt
This past week has been so crazy for me! Last weekend I attended a wedding for some high school friends in my home state of Michigan, and I decided that I simply must whip up a dress for the occasion. I’ve had the wedding on my radar for a while, but other things and procrastination… Continue reading Vogue 8811: A Dress for a Wedding
I know I’ve been hinting at this outfit for a while, but I finally got the chance to pull it out and wear the whole thing! This, friends, is a playsuit! Playsuits are vintage sets of clothing that were primarily worn during sports, at the beach, and for “play!” They range in number of pieces,… Continue reading Summer’s Last Hurrah: A Pink Playsuit!
Pink is not really one of my favorite colors. It’s not that I don’t like the color pink, it’s just not my color. You see, when you’re a twin, like I am, your parents tend to dress one twin in one set of colors, and the other in a completely different set. I got green… Continue reading Pretty in Pink and Navy
One of the things that held me back from posting these past couple of weeks has been my struggle with pin curls. I like pin curls, but the process is still a little hard for me, especially when the weather doesn’t cooperate. As much as I like pin curls, though, I really like my natural… Continue reading A Pop of Red Lipstick
