Ever since getting my marvelous boots, I've kind of been wanting to retake pictures with any and all outfits that they could possibly match. Fortunately for you, that hasn't happened with all of them, but it did with this vintage '40s dress. ;) Back when I first blogged about it, we (of course) had no snow, so it made for about the lousiest Christmas dress pictures possible. But this year we have snow, I have new boots, and therefore a new photo session was absolutely imperative. ;)
This dress is such a pretty one, both because of the fabric and the design. You can tell at a glance that it is vintage fabric, and it also has that "aged cotton," if I may call it that- feel to it. There's nothing softer! :)
My mom let me borrow her pretty black coat for these pictures, and I sort of stole her mittens for it too. ;) I still want to make a vintage coat, but have not happened upon any mountains of free wool coating with which to make one just yet. And somehow it's way more fun to spend money on pretty dress fabrics........and boots. ;)
This past summer I found this pretty velvet hat at an antique store; I can't even remember if it was local or out-of-town, but in any case, I really like the hat. It didn't want to stay on in the frigid wind, but other than that it seems to do so quite well. And since it is velvet, it matches my boots super-good!! ;)
I've been on the hunt lately for some good cream-colored sweater tights; so far all the pairs I've tried have been dreadfully short and therefore totally unwearable. They always say that they'll fit a 6' tall person, but when you try them on? Hehe, let's just say that they don't. At all. So the hunt goes on. In any case, these gray ones are my absolute favorite because, well, obviously, they're GRAY, and they also fit very well! ;)
It's so much fun to be able to wear colored tights now that I have these boots; none of my other vintage shoes seemed to look decent when paired with them.
That pose doesn't look familiar or anything, now does it? *cough*
My hands and pretty much my whole body was freezing while we took these pictures, but my feet sure weren't! :) Hurrah for warm boots!!
