Snow Faeries Falling from the Sky


Quite honestly, I'm rather blown away with how well these pictures came out, not only because they look so whimsical and vintage, but because my mother was my guest photographer. Did I perhaps discover a hidden skill of hers? I think I did.

I hope you guys like my bangs...I cut them myself. Normally I'd advise against any girl cutting her own bangs, but I really took my time, used proper scissors, and planed them out to the hair. They go pretty well with my Nana's early 1960s dress. I find myself very jealous of her former figure....a waist tinier than mine and much larger breasts. Not fair. Regardless, this dress and matching jacket are exquisite. I feel so blessed that they were passed down to me.

Dress/Jacket: Nana vintage; Boots: UO; Ring: vintage; Tights: Target; Clip-on Earrings: yard sale vintage; Velvet Purse: H&M (only $1!); Perfume: Chanel Mademoiselle

This dress is gorgeous.
I'll be posting this tomorrow in my Modest Outfit Inspiration of the day (would post it now but was already inspired. hehe)
These shots of you are so gorgeous!!! I love all the running around ones and the back shots are so cool. Great dress.
The bangs are cute!!

Your Outfit is Great but I think you should have worn your Hunter Wellies, much more practical for the snow.

you look like a princess in a fairy tale, the snow is so atmospheric

And I love the contrast between the feminine dress and the practical pioneer boots

Wow, what an absolutely stunning dress. It seems to fit you perfectly too - dresses back then were cut very tight around the waist, so perhaps you and your gran were closer in size than you think.

You wear the most fabulous clothes, and these pictures turned out great! The snow is a wonderful backdrop. I'm hoping to get that much snow where I live tomorrow, fingers crossed!

Beautiful color! Especially striking in the snow.

The thick layers of snow make the prettiest background. Only problem is, I can't imagine the behind-the-scenes reality of how cold it must've been to pose without a coat on!
You look so elegant, especially in the third photo. :) I just wish some of these photos were a bit lighter, so it would be easier to see!
