Tuesday

a scale, a mirror, and those indifferent clocks..

I've been a fan of clocks for quite some time now. Since my Grandmother Kutch bought me a vintage 1950's working clock purse for my 20th birthday, I haven't stopped thinking about them. This brings me to another artist who is somewhat obsessed with clocks: Conor Oberst. His album, "Fevers and Mirrors" is my second favorite album of his and it deals with the theme of clocks pushing time backward and forward. This is very close to my heart due to the fact that I constantly feel trapped in other eras....
When my friend Binky (who works in the prop shop) left this beautiful dress and some vintage gloves on my shelf in the costume shop... I was confused. After looking at it a second time... I realized it was perfect. It also fits me perfectly! It's just the right dress to layer over my new petticoat from Salvation Army!
outfit details:
vintage leather boots: ebay
vintage clock dress: gift
vintage petticoat: Salvation Army
Vintage 1950's floral pin: Rebecca's Antiques in Taylorville
vintage gold threader necklace: gift from my Grandmother Kutch
vintage blue circular suitcase: flea market in Edwardsville

Hope you're having a productive Tuesday!
love, polly

I wish I was a giant anteater said...

All the clocks on your dress reminds me of the W H Auden poem 'As I walked out one evening'...

"But all the clocks in the city
Began to whirr and chime:
'O let not Time deceive you,
You cannot conquer Time."

That's just a snippet from the middle. Your dress is as lovely as the poem!
