Printy in Vintage

Here’s a dress I haven’t worn since it was warm out. I thought I would try my hand at styling it for winter, or “winter” as I call it here in Austin because right now it’s oh, 58 degrees here. But anyways. I keep trying to figure out my 30 for 30 pieces and thinking I should wear the stuff that is impossible to remix, but I find that everything I pick out I want to try in different ways, so the challenge is already working! I now want to add this dress to my pieces since I have discovered it is wonderful to layer over!

Of course these little shoes will be in the mix. I have a hard time not wearing them with everything. Oh and as requested, my nail polish is by Essie, but I got it done at a nail place, so I can’t remember the name. I love non-metallic nail polish in non-reds and non-pinks, so this one is kind of a khaki green with very little shimmer.

Also today I happen to be wearing TWO shades of eye color at once. One is Nars and one is MAC. I will write a post about eyeliner sometime soon I think.

Jumping for joy that I am getting my hair cut this afternoon by the wonderfully talented Crystal at Vain Salon! I’m gonna be her hair model in the next few weeks so I will keep you posted…

    I have one word for this dress: gorgeous! Oh, and ''winter'' in Austin sounds like my kind of winter.

    What a perfect dress! I can see this so many ways, but I love it with the brogues.

    I read "I will write a post about eyeliner sometime soon I think." as "I will write a poem about eyeliner sometime soon I think." And I'm not saying you have to do that obviously, but um, that would be awesome.

    Ms Wanda approved big time of that dress. I'm all for doing multiple seasonal dresses. Love the colour too, looks fab with the eye shadow. A+ for today's outfit.

    This works perfectly!! I really like how you used a beige sweater with it- it looks so cute! And I always admire those shoes- I think they add a perfect, vintagey pop of color to the whole outfit.

    That's really cool eyeliner! I just got some metallic bright blue liquid liner, and I'm super excited to use it. It's always a fun change from black!!

    I wish my mom knew how to sew so that I could have worn prairie dresses to school. That's awesome that you wore a pinafore on your first day of 2nd grade. You go girl!
