Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree with Anyone Else but Me


I've been waiting to showcase this dress for so long, and now that I'm home I finally can. My Nana pulled it, among many other dresses, out of a cedar trunk when I went to visit her a few years ago. It's hand-made, silk, and circa the early 1960s. It's as though it was pulled right out of an episode of Mad Men! The purse, another favorite that didn't make it to Scotland, was my mother's at her Christening. Quite the vintage look.

Today is my town fair, and the weather couldn't be more perfect. I'm so excited to eat fried dough, go on the ferris wheel, and check out the animal and produce displays (especially in the bunny barn). Happy Autumn, everyone!











Dress: Vintage; Purse: Vintage; Heels: Target; Elephant Ring: F21 (only $2.00!)

You can buy the hair clip, hand-made by me, on my new Etsy! Check it out!

The club we were at was Cabaret Voltaire. And the bar that threw at all of the Americas was the Tron.
