Three dresses and a locket

This is just a quick post before I dash off to work to show off some recent purchases for summer. This time I have three dresses, two new, one vintage, and a vintage necklace. Obviously pretty, girly dresses are an obsession of mine. I even bought one today but that won't show up until a later post.

This is a really fun dress with a crazy neon pattern on the skirt. I thought I was over playing with neon until I saw this dress.



It's hard to see the belt because it hangs down when not wrapped around a body so I've included a close up shot....ignore my chipped nail polish please!




I also got this lovely sundress with sort of a paint splatter effect. i just couldn't resist the combination of light purple and black. It's a little blurry because the wind refused to stop blowing. It was just a little breeze but this dress in particular was very light weight.



Here's a close up so you can get a better look at the sweet ruffle detail...




Now on to the vintage! This little yellow and white dress is from the late 60s. I already have big plans for it so keep a lookout for it to appear in a future post!




This dress has no zippers, just these adorable buttons...




No matter how many pictures I tried to take of this locket, with and without flash, i couldn't get anything that wasn't blurry or glaring or something. This was the best that it got...




You can't really tell, but it's bigger than a half dollar and has a design etched into it, making it very medallion like. It opens and I plan to put a picture of my sweetheart in it! Despite the breeze i think these outdoor shots turned out a lot better than the indoor pictures I took last month. I don't know where I'll take pictures come winter.

Sorry this is all sorta blah, I have to run but I'm working on some more interesting posts for the upcoming week, like my take on west side story.......

  2. I'm loving the geometric-printed one most of all. I have two tunics with similar designss, one is pretty much the same colors in a different pattern, the other has a similar pattern but it's more yellows and greens. I love wearing them with black leggings or black opaque tights (I LOVE opaque tights!!) and a snazzy pair of heels. ^_^

    That locket is just so sweet! Something so classic and romantic.
