Ribbon bows

Yesterday was too hot to really do anything except sit around indoors with the air conditioning on, watching The Simpsons and continuing to plow through my atrociously huge sewing pile. Late in the evening, when it had finally cooled down enough to venture outside, Logan and I took a stroll through my favourite suburb. Ohoka is full of amazing historic houses with impeccable gardens, and there's a great walkway which lets you perv into them with reckless abandon. It was immeasurably lovely.

(Wearing a vintage dress, costume-cupboard satchel and Urban Outfitters shoes.)

This amazing 1950s dress is yet another one from my online action bulk lot. I've been furiously hemming and fixing them all, with still more to go! This one had a charming chocolate stain on the front, but it was nothing a little bow couldn't fix.


  1. love your vintage dress. it's just so adorable!on the other side of the world it's still quite cold...


  2. Such a lovely dress! That's so cool that you shop second hand, too! I let myself shop vintage as well, because technically it belonged to someone before and that's all the matters to me! And I'll have to check out American Apparel tights after your recommendation.

  3. I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOUR WEATHER. It is snowing here in good old Chicago. Your dress is beautiful, but frankly it makes me sad to look at :)

  7. Your floral dress is so beautiful! I love how you fixed the stain with a quick bow, perfect!

  8. The photographs are beautiful, the floral print of the dress in the lush gardens.
