This was another hot one.. aaand I ran into multiple spider webs! It was freaky because I kept feeling my back and hair for spiders after that. I used the same location as the last outfit shoot.. but went deeper into the woods..
LOVE this song!
Of course, when you go deeper into the woods there are bound to be more spiders and bugs swarming around you or in your ear.. But, all in all, it was a good time. The dress is by Periwinkle and is old. It's a size 12! Can you believe that? I cut off the bottom and hemmed it yesterday with my mom's sewing machine. She actually just bought me a new computerized project runway sewing machine for school (my major is costume design). It was one of my birthday gifts :)
Back last winter I was THE lady to buy granny boots from on Ebay. Okay, I wasn't.. but I pretty much sold 20 pairs of them over the winter! I made big bucks. But I couldn't resist getting these white wonders along the way!
They look so Edwardian! No?

When I bought this dress my Grandma Kutch was with me.. She told me not to buy it because it was a 1950's dress.. I laughed and told her that was exactly the point! She is kind of burnt out on antiques now... which is sad but also lucky for me because she hands down a lot of her beautiful things to me. I am very lucky to have her in my life not only because she gives great advice and takes care of my cat, but she is one of the kindest, giving people I have ever encountered.
