Sunshine Style!

Gingham, oh gingham, how do I love thee?/ You are for picnics and sunshine/ And dogs named Mitzy!


Haha! I crack myself up!

I found a gingham dress Poodles! Finally! 


Alas, it is not that most desirable of dresses, the Trashy Diva Hopscotch, but it is VINTAGE! And it was budget-friendly!


Isn't it cute?? I brought my trusty measuring tape into a local vintage shop (Hot Couture!), and told the ever-so-friendly and adorable shop girl, that I was on a gingham quest. 

Her reply, "I have just the thing!" She went into the back and pulled out a few dresses with my measurements, and this darling dress was among them!

It is the perfect length for my short stature, AND it twirls fabulously! 


I love twirling, don't you? It is one of my favorite things about vintage 50's dresses.

I wore it this past Sunday out in my tiny blooming garden, and Mitzy approved wholeheartedly!



Oh lovely gingham/ You are such fun!/ Especially when twirling/ in the late Summer sun!

Haha!!!

  4. My word, and what an absolute stunner is is! One glance at your beautiful frock, and one can't help but instantly wonder why gingham and lace aren't partnered together more often. The combo of sweet and alluring is flat out stunning. Congrats on this stylishly awesome find, honey!
