sea lion woman

I was thinking about the perfect song for this outfit on the drive back to Taylorville today.. I figured this one fit :)
It was a very windy day today, but also beautiful.
The shoes were $3 at Goodwill in Edwardsville, IL.
The dress was $5 at the University of Illinois costume and props sale last weekend. It's a little tattered, but my teacher gave it to me for $5 instead of $10 because she wanted it to be a fun little project for me :D
These were taken in Taylorville, my home town.
The necklace was a gift from my Grandma Kutch. The lipstick is Merle Norman (my mother and grandmother got me addicted!)
The earrings were a gift from my wonderful cousin Molly Planck. She is the sweetest!
I got the purse on Ebay. It's from the 1920's... and I am IN LOVE with it.
love, polly

I'm jealous that you're so photogenic. I take terrible pictures. That dress blends into the sky. Perfect backdrop. And I love those earrings... I barely wear them, but I admire them just the same.
