so let it rain

I thought I'd start off the week with a passed-due outfit post. I took these on Saturday, luckily, the weather people were wrong in predicating it would be full of rain and I actually had some sun to work with. In fact, it didn't officially start to rain until Sunday afternoon which I honestly found mildly amusing since it came just in time to soak the Redcarpet of the Golden Globes. Yes, it's true, even Hollywood can't do a thing about the weather!


Enough of that and back to the outfit post at handI know what you might be thinking, another red dress!?! But this is my latest vintage etsy find and I must say, I really lucked out with this one. Aside from it needing (eventually) to be taken in ever so slightly, it's very close to the imaginary dress I had been looking for. Do you ever make up articles of clothing or accessories in your head and wish that you had the power (or master sewing skills) to make them yourself? Well, I do this quite often and occasionally I find what I've been looking for with out use of a genie or a magic lamp! Red, blue, tiny flower embroidery and ribbons - how could I resist! (*sidenote* sorry about light in the first shot - this just proves there is such thing as an over-abundance of California sunshine)






details:  vintage dress -- etsy | tights --nordstrom | patent oxfords -- a gift


Happy MLK day to those of you in the US or to anyone who can appreciate this great human being, his dream and all he accomplished.  Here's (a extremely sweaty) Bono doing a little MLK tribute. Have a great Monday!
