When I look back at some of my first posts I am amazed at how much better my photography and styling has got since I started nearly ten months ago. I think sprouts from a combination of two things a) the constant practice I've gotten since starting this blog, and b) the benefit of having such lovely young ladies to learn from.
When I found this dress at a thrift store near my cousin's house I was thrilled. I reminded me a lot of the Aviary Enthusiast Dress ModCloth is selling, and it was very flattering on. I tried styling it during the week end I stayed at with my cousin, but didn't have the right pieces with me to make it work. A week later I pulled it out of my closet and - rather discouraged from the attempt (and fail) I made at my cousin's house - wondered what in the world could bring out the modern, chic vibe of this dress.
Knowing that Rebbeca of The Clothes Horse had the Aviary Enthusiast Dress from Modcloth, I quickly ran over to her blog to see how she had styled the ModCloth counter part to my dress. And while I gave up before I found the post I was looking for, I did, however, find this post of hers, with a dress even more like mine. Encouraged by the fact that I had a very similar pair of sandals as well as a denim jacket similar to hers, I attempted the styling. Unfortunately for me it was far too hot to wear my denim jacket, so I finished off the look with my lovely, tan Charlotte Russe belt, instead, and loved it! My mom even gave me an old red purse of hers that matched perfectly.
This dress is so comfortable, and cool and the skirt swings when I walk and makes me feel like a glamorous lady from the 40's. Does it get any better than that??
