victorian-ish sleeves on a hippy dress
dress - vintage, belt - my stepdad's, belt buckle - vintage, tights - dkny, shoes - bucco
This dress used to be my mom's. I'm not sure how old it is, but she wore it while she was pregnant with me and before, when she was a total hippie. It's been hanging in the back of my closet for years because I just didn't know how to wear it. I'm pretty happy with the outfit I put together here. The belt buckle was my grandmother's, she gave it to me a few years ago when she was getting rid of some stuff. I put it on a nice brown leather belt I stole from my stepdad. He never wore it. It had a big western style buckle on it before.
belt - thrifted
Unfortunately the buckle broke while I was at school, but I think I might be able to fix it. So on my way home I stopped at the thrift store to look for a replacement. I got a braided leather belt. I like the wide belt with the big buckle better, but this works too. I also got a pretty silk scarf and a red plaid flannel shirt from the little boys section.
coat - old navy
My hair has gotten so long. I rarely wear it down because it's so difficult to do anything with, but it was sort of working today, so I did. But I really need to get it cut. Also, I have ugly roots that need taken care of. I can't decide though if I want to dye it dark like my natural color or light like the rest of it.
