so this handmade vintage vest was from the windfall i spoke of a few days ago – a friend is cleaning out her boyfriend’s mother’s house and found a HUGE assortment of vintage clothing, everything from evening dresses to lingerie to housedresses.  all time periods too, and she brought me over a gigantic box of the stuff to wear so she has pics to help her eventually sell the stuff on ebay.  it’s all very exciting.

outfit details: blue flowered square dance dress by schorrer and from my own collection; handmade polyester vest is from the treasure trove; shoes are keds

song inspiration: “a boy named sue” by johnny cash.  i have been obsessed with watching old videos on youtube of johnny – this is the original clip from the folsom prison concert.  another piece of trivia – i once won a free latte from star bucks for knowing who wrote the words to this song.  (it’s shel silverstein, if you are interested.)

    Ooh, I love this dress! And I had no idea that Shel Silverstein wrote the lyrics…way cool!

    Very feminine and the color of the dress is really great. Do you have like a total price for the whole outfit from head to toe? I am just curious. 🙂

    Love the post but just a suggestion I think you look great but if you can change your hair to black it will be perfect. But still looks are awesome!
