It's officially spring - everywhere but outside! I am so sick of winter and so ready for a little color in my life again. Love some suggestions for brightening up my life to feel more like spring.
Dear Loved Every Color but the Winter Blues One,
I hear you. And I think fashion designers did too! This isn't exactly what you asked but...
|But this is what Helen WANTS to talk about. It's her blog and she's stubborn as a mule. A Rhinestone covered mule.|
Helen and her daughter have agreed we feel better when we look better
|But Mom, I thought the rule was if you EAT CANDY you feel better.|
Silly boy, Helen can do both (at least that's what she keeps telling herself)!
After years of drab colors and shapeless clothes - color seems to be back and Helen's closet is now full of it.
|Must... Refrain... from making joke about Helen being full of it.|
In the form of simple dresses - which I have found are the PERFECT way to show off Vintage accessories! So here are some my fun mix of new, old and retro inspired goodies for spring.
|Denim and Dots dress, polka dot shoes from Target. Thrifted scarf, purse. Craft fair hair clip, vintage cherries, my fav red cowboy boots. Crocheted vest - Walmart.|
|Blouse and skirt and sunglasses from Target. Vintage scarf, gloves, hat, set off with a vintage pin of your choice! How very THAT GIRL, don't you think?|
|Last year's green dress from DressBarn gets dressed up with vintage buttons, a vintage belt, gloves and rhinestone headband. Cat Hair courtesy of Miss Moxie.|
|You mean the whole photo shoot wasn't about ME??|
|That belt thing - thrifted belt makes a Target shirt dress look great or if you are mad about the MOD look - vintage VERA scarves anyone? Or a vintage Sarah Coventry owl? No idea where I got the sunglasses but I bet they were a bargain.|
|Looking for a way to get more use of your pink Topsiders? Wear them with polka dots from DressBarn and a vintage can can! Pearls are always in style and leopard sunglasses? Every girl needs at least one pair.|
Whew - thanks for indulging me.
Just had so much fun thinking up ways to stop dressing like a post Zumba class zombie apocalypse survivor whenever I went out.
Color is back and good taste never goes out of style.
Hope that gave you some bright ideas!
