There are some things that I like a lot, but are not my style. This swing dance outfit is one of them. Very fem & cheerful and if I did wear it I would try to turn it into some de los muertos kind of outfit.
here. So, it's there now :)
Recently, I was shopping at one of my fav vintage clothing store and I came across another swing skirt. This one had a bit more of a rockabilly vibe. It was still a little on the out(skirts) of my style, but the elastic waist and open hips won me over.
I am also wearing my Vince Camuto two-tone brandy boots. I have wanted them forever. Last season I waited until they went on sale and then they didn't have my size, so I bought them right away this year when they went on sale :) They are already sold out from Dillard's where I got mine, but they still have some here if you are interested. Now for obligatory twirl:
But I do love the skirt. Cotton, elastic waist, busy weird paisley patterns that hide a multitude of sins (stains)... This is everyday wear for me with two little ones and work on my website and in my booth.
Needless to say, I was at the booth later and after I finished working I couldn't help but peruse the other vendors. LeShawn, two booths down from me, is a super nice cool lady who always has fun little things at great prices. I had to buy this small vintage pony-hair cross body purse.
I might do a post soon featuring all the other vendors because they have such amazing things. I always encourage people to check out the store, Seminole Heights Antiques & Home Decor and I know they think I'm self promoting 'cause my booth is there, but the entire store is incredible!!! Once people go they all agree and realize I wasn't kidding :)
After we worked, we went to Bo's (little local place) for ice cream. This is winter & you can sit outside & eat ice cream. Now you can see why my obsession with short sleeves and cotton is practicality based.
