Saturday

my heart keeps beating like a hammer

LISTEN WHILE YOU LOOK:
Hi, there! Thank god for Spring Break! What a MUCH needed rest! I am finally catching up on sleep and my social life. I had coffee and pie last night with my friend Lindsey and then listened to some music out at the Taylorville Dam with my friend Sam. It was so nice considering that I haven't had social interaction at all thanks to midterms. Today I went to my cousin, Katie's, bridal shower! (that's why I am all dressed up!) :D
It was funny, though, because people kept telling me, "You're next!" (FOR MARRAIGE...HA!) and we all had to go around the party and give advice to Katie for her future marriage and OBVIOUSLY I haven't been married and my relationships just keep getting shorter and shorter. I just told her that, "Thrifting is therapeutic. Don't forget that.." I feel like that's good stress relief when something goes wrong. Haha, so much for wisdom!
outfit details: vintage wedding dress from 1905 (a gift to my Grandma Kutch when she owned her antique store), blazer from my Great Grandma Polly, hat- Forever 21, boots- ebay, red suede belt- my mother let me borrow it while being home for break :)
love, polly :)

oh my goodness. that is the most gorgeous dress ever. do you ever daydream about who may have gotten married in that?? i can't believe how amazing it looks for being over a hundred years old...what a gorgeous piece to own!

Gorgeous dress! I used to have a vintage wedding dress my aunt found, but unfortunately I was 4 when she gave it to me and my sisters, so it's in pretty bad shape from too many games of dress-up.

Oh no, I HATE that give-advice-to-the-bride thing! I'm like ten years younger than her- I have nooooooo idea! :-) That dress is incredible

Oh my, your dress is beautiful.
I am really into all the lace and frills which seem to be in at the moment, hence why I made a tunic with an old doily on ^_^
I really love how each of your photos seems to tell a little story, it is very sweet :)

That dress is just amazing! I know I have a 1980s wedding dress waiting for me in my mother's wardrobe, but somehow I don't think it will be as nice...
Brilliant place to be photographed in it too!

Stippling was always one of my favorite things to do. A lot of people find it so tedious, but I just love how putting all those tiny dots together comes to be a beautiful picture! Sort of relaxing and soothing in a way. Love how yours turned out! (And omg... that dress!)
