fashion friday....

Dearest blue dress, how i covet thee. I saw you across the way at my favorite shop, and knew you beckoned to me. I took you into the dressing room, letting you hang amongst while dreaming.... and i knew....i just knew.





You hang on my door in style...







you love the shoes i pare you with.....






you billow in the wind without regret.....









you dream on a bed of feathers......










oh, blue dress, how i love thee....















{thank you dear friend Maisy, for helping with with this photoshoot!}

How fun this was, but it took the whole day...nothing like lugging an iron bed out back!


come check out the "other" fashionista {my new bff}...Rebekah...here.


and if you love that bed, email me, cuz i'm planning on putting


it in shop next week. And, thank you for letting me post about my love for style!

xxoo

This old house has a great tutorial on painting cabinets. darcy is one great painter and might hire her to do mine. my kitchen is NOT me!!!

LOVE! It is all perfect. The dress billowing in the wind reminded me of summer days to come. The shoes you paired it with are flat out gorgeous. And you lounging on the bed out back? That is perfect.

You go girl! I love that dress and it's classic femininity and that you lugged an iron bed out into the snow for a magazine worthy photo shoot. Fantastic!

Jen Kershner said...

Gorgeous! And it looks gorgeous on you too. I saw it online and I could see how it was hard to resist.

Love that bed. Wish I had a need for it.

LOVE the dress.
LOVE.
i don't think i own anything blue.
nothing.
strange.
and you gave me a great idea. i have a photo of a bed that i have in my "do this" file for photography. and you just reminded me that i have an iron bed in storage here. duh. i could do this shoot! thank you for the reminder.
maybe it will be a self photo shoot of me and all my flannel jammie sets! HA HA HA.
no i meant a photos of kids.
but the sock monkey jammie photo shoot would be a riot!

Alyssa said...

That dress is so cute!! Love how the photos turned out:)
