garage sale outfit

I scored a handful of dresses at the Bryn Mawr Festival of Garage Sales a few weeks back. Most will eventually wind up on Etsy, but this is one I’m a keepin’ for myself. Any dress with pockets is A-OK with me, plus I love the coconut shell buttons at the shoulder. A dress, boots and a bun is pretty much my go-to look for work when I’m running late, as I was the day these were taken. Three steps and I’m out the door. Easy peasy.

Dress: Sears, found at garage sale, $4

Boots: $5, garage sale

Silver & stone cuff: Handmade by my aunt in 1970s

Other silver bracelets: I’ve had since I was a wee one

Silver & opal ring: $15, bought at a jewelry shop in Manitou Springs, Colorado in 2000

Hair bow: Red Velvet Art

Bubble Up soda: Bobby & Steve’s on Washington Avenue

Today was simply gorgeous, wasn’t it? I’m looking forward to a night of unadulterated domesticity. Already since work I’ve busted out a strawberry rhubarb custard pie for my newish neighbors across the street. I’m not the most skilled baker by any means, and this was my very first attempt at a lattice crust. I think it turned out OK…

Also on night’s agenda: cooking up a simple supper of  shrimp, rice and veg and then sewing some, writing some and reading some.

Until next time,

  1. A vintage dress that’s both cute and easy to wear… SCORE!

    So, um… do you bake those yummy pies for all your new neighbors? If so, you might be welcoming me to the neighborhood very soon. ;)
