PLAID-itude…..


I Acquired this dress and quite a few others at a church sale about three months back and I have been meaning to share this sweet 1950s Jonathan Logan plaid dress with you all before the new year or right at the new year!




It was a frigidly cold & windy day and the photos are proof that I didn’t need a crinoline to show the best feature of this stunning dress! Check my Etsy shop for this dress and some cute skirts that are going up later tonight. This is a taste of what is coming at my little Etsy shop this year!!


Ok here’s a condensed list of my resolutions for the year 2010 and would like know what yours are as well!

-sing more.

-dance more.

-laugh more.

-read more!

-stay organize all year round.

Have a wonderful weekend and Joyeux 2010!!!


P.s. I wanted to thank each and everyone for commenting & making my little blog a place of joy in 2009.

i like your resolutions, even though i don't make them myself. too much pressure, i guess! ;) (well, that's one reason.) but yours are good ones worth striving for.
so the dress...love the plaid, the cut, the color. you find the smartest, prettiest vintage.
happy 2010!!

Your New Year's resolutions are the best! I wasn't going to have any this year, but I think I'm going to adopt your list. And the dress is amazing! I know you're running a business, but you should keep it! It looks stunning on you and even though the whipping winds have been awful, I'm pleased to see how magical they've made your dress!

I LOVE these pics. The wind added such whimsy.

Jessica Cangiano said...

What delightfully lovely photos, something about the wind poofing up your skirt into a tulip-esque shape instantly reminded me of Mary Poppins as she drifts through the wind.

Wishing you a gorgeous Friday & amazing weekend ahead!
