Outfit: No Longer Blue

I bought this dress today at a private vintage sale at my friend Adrienne Weber's house. Their house reminds of me of what my Grandmother Kutch's antique shop looked like when I was a child. They had an absolutely beautiful vintage piano that I wanted to play so badly! There was also a separate room for clothes and jewelry. As I sorted through the rack of clothing- there were pieces from the 1920's, and even the late 1800's. These pieces always awe and shock me and it's true research for a costume designer to see these kind of garments in person (in valuable condition, that is..). We made a plan to work together next Thursday and I am going to model some of these clothes for her, and they will appear in my shop, Paulie Antiques. I will do my very best to curate, measure, describe and sell them in my store, with the help of Adrienne. This is a very exciting adventure and I LOVE wearing clothing from the 1800's! I feel like I am in another era and I adore that feeling. I am so excited to tell you more... but you'll have to wait until at least Thursday! XO!

Ah you gorgeous creature! This dress is beautiful on you (and I will be anxiously awaiting these bound-to-be-stunning items in your shop!), and I've been eyeing that hat in your shop! So lovely.
